Bellotti advised to avoid Goldstone
Friday 26 April 1996
Extra police will be on duty for the Second Division game against York City following trouble after last Saturday's 1-0 win over Carlisle. Around 600 fans invaded the pitch calling for Bellotti's resignation, and some supporters tore up seats in the directors' box as attempts were made to storm the boardroom.
Supporters have become increasingly frustrated as the issue of where Brighton will play next season is yet to be resolved. They have until Tuesday to agree a pounds 480,000 rental deal with the ground's developers, Chartwell, which would let them to stay on for a final season. They must inform the Football League of their plans within 28 days or face expulsion.
Gary Mabbutt has agreed a new two-year deal at Tottenham. Mabbutt's decision to extend his 14-year stay at White Hart Lane effectively means he will end his playing career with the side he joined from Bristol Rovers for pounds 105,000.
Sheffield Wednesday's top scorer, David Hirst, is set to sign a new contract at Hillsborough. Speculation about the 28-year-old's future has been circulating with his current agreement coming to an end this summer. Hirst said yesterday: "I'm very close to signing. I am very happy to stay at Sheffield Wednesday and I'll do so if the deal is right."
John Collins, the Celtic midfielder, last night gave the clearest hint yet about his future. Collins, out of contract in June, has been linked with several European clubs. But the player, who has long been a target for Everton, appeared to clear the way for Joe Royle, the Goodison manager, to move in.
"I watch English games on television every week with great entertainment and excitement in packed stadiums," Collins said yesterday.
Collins joined Celtic from Hibernian for pounds 1m, but now seems certain to end his six-year association with the club.
Scunthorpe have appointed Mick Buxton as their manager for the second time. Buxton, who was in charge from 1984-87, returned as caretaker manager two months ago and has since guided his side on an eight-match unbeaten run.
