All the midweek news from the Vanarama National League North


Following the postponement of the two league games due to be played, there was no action in the Vanarama National League North last night (Tues).

Both fixtures, Spennymoor v Bradford (Park Avenue) and Hereford v Brackley, were called off due to heavy rain and wind.

In terms of news in the league since the weekend's fixtures, it is Guiseley who have been the busiest of the clubs, with two players departing and one joining.

Striker Akeel Francis signed a dual registration deal with Grantham Town on Saturday, while Kwame Boateng (no relation Bayern Munich defender Jerome) has signed for Farsley Celtic.

The Lions have bolstered their squad, however, by bringing in 20-year old striker Lewis Archer on loan from Hednesford Town. The highly-rated youngster will remain with them until the end of the season.

Nathan Brown, who was released by Chester on Saturday, has joined Marine FC, of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

Hereford are another club to see a player leave, after defender Jimmy Oates was recalled by his parent club Exeter last night.

A similar scenario was seen at Darlington the same night, as defender Williams Kokolo returned to Sunderland after being recalled from loan.
