Swindon Town have appointed Sandro di Michele as their new technical director. Di Michele leaves a role as head recruitment analyst at Wigan Athletic to take up the job with Swindon.


Disciplinary Charges

The Canadian national team went on strike on Sunday due to a dispute with the country's FA, Canada Soccer. The strike forced a friendly with Panama to be called off with the players releasing a letter which accuses Canada Soccer of "disrespecting" the team, who have qualified for the World Cup for only the second time in Canada's history. The dispute revolves around the percentage of prize money the players would get from the World Cup, with 10% of the total being offered by Canada Soccer according to initial reports, which would be at least £8m. Canada Soccer have said that they offered 60%, to be split equally between players on the men's and women's team, but that "the men's national team demand was for 75-100 percent of the World Cup prize money". Players are also unhappy that the team's families would be offered just two tickets per player.

Plymouth Argyle have reported that intruders drove a tractor across their pitch at Home Park, causing "mindless destruction" while the pitch was in an "early and crucial stage of renovation" ahead of next season.


US Team Supports Gun Control

The United States' national team wore orange armbands on Sunday in support of tighter gun controls in the USA. The team also sent a letter to Congress calling for "stronger gun laws" in the wake of a number of mass shootings in the country. The letter read: "As athletes who have the privilege of traveling the globe representing the greatest country in the world, we are often asked how in a place like the United States there can be such horrific gun violence. We are also asked why the representatives of the people do nothing even though most Americans want them to take action. Those of us who play professionally abroad experience none of these things in our daily lives, yet we return home to a place where mass shootings are frighteningly common and the victims are often defenceless children." It has been reported that there have already been 239 mass shootings in the US in 2022.


Walsall Takeover

An American investment firm has bought a controlling interest in League Two side Walsall. The Alabama-based Trivela Group LLC have bought 51% of club chairman Leigh Pomlett's 76% stake in the Midlands club. Pomlett will stay on as co-chairman with one of Trivela's two founders, Benjamin Boycott, for the next four years "to ensure a smooth transition". Trivela have also "injected additional capital directly into the club" according to a Walsall statement. The group will also buy the rest of Pomlett's shares and buy the freehold on Walsall's Bescot Stadium home within 2 years. Walsall have reported profits for 16 consecutive years, including for the year played behind closed doors due to the pandemic.
