Lincoln boss Gary Simpson has denied reports linking the club to former Macclesfield man John Rooney. Simpson was at the Silkmen with Rooney, who is a free agent after leaving Barnsley. Simpson says he wants to sign four more players, two of which will be strikers. Woking have signed midfielder Josh Payne for the coming season. The 22 year old last played for Aldershot, after time at Gillingham, but was sacked last December after being jailed for an assault.
Crewe have announced the signing of Macclesfield defender Thierry Audel. The Frenchman was also a target for Luton, who trialled him in January before he signed for the Silkmen.
