Scotland's top 10 clubs have rejected an invitation to enter the InterToto Cup next season and earn a possible extra Uefa Cup place. The Scottish Premier League is not convinced about the worth of the competition and believes that extra matches in July would only increase fixture congestion.
Colin Todd, of Bolton Wanderers, has been named the Nationwide Manager of the Month for January. Wanderers won all three of their First Division matches during the first month of the year to leave themselves handily placed for an immediate return to the Premiership after last year's relegation. Kevin Keegan has won the Second Division award after guiding Fulham to the top of the table during the month and securing two FA Cup giant-killings over Aston Villa and Southampton. Cambridge United's Roy McFarland has secured the Third Division title by taking his side to second in the table after remaining unbeaten in four League games, winning three and drawing one.
