    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2018/2019

    Northampton back in League Two

    Oldham is one of those places like Crewe that are great to visit as it makes you appreciate where you live more. Few places make Burslem look beautiful but these two manage it. It must also be the world leader in Southern fried chicken shops, there is one every few yards.
