While there is no clause in place, boss Kenny Jackett has spoken about the possibility of keeping him at Fratton Park beyond the summer.

HERE‘s what the Blues manager told the Portsmouth News.

Barnsley midfielder Kenny Dougall has spoken for the first time after attempting to play-on against Doncaster Rovers with a leg break.

The Australian was withdrawn in the 18th-minute in Friday’s stalemate, where scans further revealed he had broken his leg – ruling him out for the rest of the season.

He said: “Injuries are part of the game and unfortunately I’ve been hit with another tough pill to swallow. Full trust in the lads to get us up into the Championship!

“Don’t know why I’ve tried to play on with a broken leg but nobody can say I didn’t try.”

Bradford City midfielder Sean Scannell is in line for a return from injury against Blackpool on Saturday.

The 28-year-old has been ruled out for almost six months following a stress fracture in his back.

Bantams boss Gary Bowyer told the Telegraph and Argus: “Shaun’s had a good week and we’ll look at giving him a little bit more this week.

“We’ve obviously got to tread with caution with him because of the amount of time he has been out.

“We want to have him for the remainder of the season, rather than just bringing him back for one game and not being quite ready.

“But he could possibly be back at the weekend. We’ll see how he goes in training and take it from there before making any decision.”

Niall Mason has had his contract terminated by Doncaster Rovers for gross misconduct in the aftermath of his conviction for sexual assault.

A short statement released by the club read: “Rovers have cancelled the contract of Niall Mason after he withdrew an appeal against his dismissal by the club.

“Rovers opened internal disciplinary proceedings immediately following his guilty plea for a sexual offence at Sheffield Crown Court.”

Mason has since protested his innocence. Tune in the Doncaster Free Press for the full details.

Peterborough United have launched a five-year plan in a bid to nurture more homegrown players into their first-team.

Posh are on a mission to ensure at least three players graduate from the club’s Academy to the first-team squad by the year 2024.

To help Academy staff meet their new target, Posh have tripled their budget and will double the current number of junior teams they run.

Co-owner Dr Jason Neale is a firm advocate of the club’s new plan – HERE‘s what he told the Peterborough Telegraph.

Former Portsmouth, Bolton, West Ham, Burnley and Northampton midfielder Matt Taylor has announced he will retire at the end of the season.

The 37-year-old will call time on his 20-year career with Swindon Town in May having made more than 600 appearances as a pro.

Taylor confirmed his retirement on social media in a lengthy statement which you can read HERE.

Crystal Palace defender and Lewes midfielder join Crawley Wasps



Crawley Wasps have signed Crystal Palace defender Hope Nash and Lewes midfielder Charlotte Owen ahead of their first season in the third tier of women’s football.

Both Nash, 21, and Owen, 23, bring higher-division experience to the newly-promoted Wasps squad.

Midfielder Charlotte Owen has joined Crawley Wasps from Lewes.

Full-back Nash played 15 games in the FA Women’s Championship last season for Palace. She was also a key part of the Charlton Athletic squad that won the FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division – where Wasps will play this season – in 2017-18.

Crawley-based Owen spent two years with Lewes, playing in both the third and second tiers, and was previously with Brighton.

“I just want to get back to playing and enjoying my football, and I think Crawley’s the best place for me to do that. It should be a great season,” she said.

Nash added: “It’s such a lovely club. The players and the coaching staff have been so welcoming – this is the best I’ve settled in at a club.

“There’s a winning mentality throughout the squad. We’re not here just to make up the numbers.”

Nash and Owen take Wasps’ summer additions to three, after the arrival of Lewes striker Rebecca Carter.

Paul Walker’s side were narrowly edged out 1-0 by Championship club Charlton in a pre-season friendly on Sunday and take on Nash’s other former side Palace this weekend, at the Ewhurst training base in Ifield Drive, Crawley.

They begin the new league season at home to Plymouth Argyle on Sunday August 18.
