Double blow for Farnborough

Nationwide South side Farnborough Town have been dealt a futher setback after two more players decided to depart from the crisis club.

Boro skipper Mark Rooney and right-back Danny Allen-Page have left Cherrywood Road due to their feelings of insecurity since the club applied to go into Administration.

At least there is some good news after Farnborough heard that their transfer embargo has been partially lifted, allowing manager Ian McDonald to sign up non contract players and scholars.

New boss McDonald remains optimistic for the future despite all the negativity surrounding the club.

"It's a great shame to lose Danny and Mark and very sad for the club, but at the end of the day I only want players who want to play for us and are 100% committed," he said.

"I have spoken to a lot of players lately and I am hopeful of getting in one or two within the next week.

"However, it's only July and people tend to be very cagey at this time of year, but I'm sure we will get a good squad together.

"With Jay Smith and Mark Rooney leaving, the centre of defence is a real priority for me."

Another piece of better news is that talented midfielder Matt Pattison has committed his future to Boro.
