After some speculation from fans, Wrexham have confirmed that manager Sam Ricketts has left to join League One side Shrewsbury Town. Graham Barrow will take charge as they search for Ricketts’ successor.

Sutton United have announced Dan Wishart has left to join fellow National League side Maidstone United. Wishart joined Sutton in 2014 making over 60 appearances before joining Forest Green in 2016. Wishart re-joined Sutton at the start of this season before leaving earlier this week.

Despite facing a winding up petition, Ebbsfleet have reassured their fans that they have decided to pay the money and will therefore avoid folding. Ebbsfleet had been paying their players late in seven out of the last 10 months but have assured the fans that the payments are being made.
