League Two news roundup: Transfer activity gathers pace among clubs


Joe Jones

What's been happening in League Two over the last week?

Here is Pride of Nottingham's round-up of the biggest League Two news from the last seven days.

- Former Notts County boss Martin Allen has left his position as Barnet manager - in what was his fifth spell in charge at the club - following their relegation from League Two, and took charge of fellow relegated side Chesterfield.

- The first legs of the League Two playoff semi-finals both finished evenly poised as Lincoln and Exeter played out a 0-0 draw while Notts County's game at Coventry ended in an unjust 1-1 draw.

- Coventry defender Tom Davies was charged and subsequently banned for three games - crucially including Friday's playoff second leg with Notts - after a stamp on Richard Duffy.

- Peterborough United signed out-of-contract Accrington Stanley goalkeeper Aaron Chapman on a two-year deal which starts on July 1.

- Port Vale signed Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper Scott Brown on a two-year deal.

- Colchester United full-back Ryan Jackson has signed a new two-year contract with the Essex club.

- Cheltenham Town signed defender Johnny Mullins following his release by Luton Town on a two-year contract.

- Cambridge United goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov has signed a new three-year contract at the Abbey Stadium.
