DAVID SPEEDIE SACKED BY CRAWLEY

David Speedie, the former Chelsea and Scotland striker, has walked out on the Beazer Homes League club, Crawley Town, after being fined two weeks' wages for receiving his 12th booking of the season. He received his fourth suspension of the season a week ago when he was banned for four games.
Officials of the United States' new 10-team Major League Soccer, which is scheduled to kick-off on 6 April, are hoping to gain permission from Fifa, world football's governing body, to use larger goals for their inaugural season.
