YEOVIL Town’s Academy manager Paul Wilson has offered scholarships to four of the club’s youngsters.

So far, strikers Devon Arnold and Archie Sturdy have both been offered terms, alongside versatile midfielder George Calverley and defender Declan Rose.

This means the youngsters will be able to link up with the U18s side at Huish Park and Wilson reminded those who weren’t offered a scholarship, that was still plenty of time to catch his attention.

“This is always an exciting and at the same time difficult period, with lads being offered deals and some not so.” he said. “We have offered other players the chance to stay longer at the club in order to impress us, but these four boys have already impressed with their good level of performance and understanding.”

LINCOLN City manager Danny Cowley has distanced himself from a move for Peterborough United striker Ricky Miller.

The 28-year-old has been made available by the London Road club, despite joining on a three-year contract in May this year.

The Imps are said to be one of many teams linked with the former Luton Town man after they enquired about the 28-year-old over the summer.

CHESTERFIELD United may have some concerns in the goalkeeping department as Cameron Dawson is set to be recalled from his emergency loan by parent club, Sheffield United.

Due to the injury situation at Hillsborough they have been forced to recall the 22-year-old, who has made two outings for Jack Lester’s side.

PORT Vale manager Neil Aspin is looking to extend the stay of both Gavin Gunning and Ben Whitfield.

Gunning joined the club on a short-term deal at the start of the season and has since established himself as the club’s first-choice left back, while 21-year- old Whitfield has proved to be a creative force in midfield during his loan stint from Bournemouth.

“I know that Bournemouth have a meeting this week and we should get a decision on that by the end of the week,” he said. “So that would be a positive step if we can make ground on that.”

“Gavin is a player that I would like to keep at the club for longer. The chairman has been away for a couple of weeks but he is back on Thursday so that needs to be sorted out because he has done well for me since I have been at the club.”

CREWE Alexandra chief David Artell has been handed a boost going into the festive fixtures after providing an update on the club’s injured trio.

James Jones has been ruled out with a pelvis problem, while Ryan Wintle and Ray George have also been sidelined.

After returning to training this week, Artell expects the trio to become available at some point in the new year.

“They have all been out on the grass running,” he said. “There have been no reactions.

“Right now I have to plan without them, they haven’t kicked a ball all season.”
