Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORTING INDEX -

» For­mer Cheltenham Town loan de­fender Ryan In­niss has joined New­port County on loan from Crys­tal Palace for the rest of the sea­son.

The 24-year-old cen­tre-back ap­peared for the Robins dur­ing the 2013/14 cam­paign, mak­ing his de­but at West Ham United in the sec­ond round of the League Cup at Up­ton Park.

He made four starts for Cheltenham and has since ap­peared for Lu­ton Town, Gilling­ham, Yeovil Town, Port Vale, Southend United, Colch­ester United and, most re­cently, Dundee.

In­niss made his Palace first­team bow in a win over Swansea City in the Carabao Cup last sea­son be­fore join­ing Dundee on loan, where he made 13 ap­pear­ances in the Scot­tish Premier­ship.

Michael Flynn’s New­port reached the League Two play-off fi­nal last sea­son, los­ing out to Tran­mere Rovers at Wem­b­ley. They also en­joyed a mem­o­rable FA Cup run, bow­ing out to Manch­ester City in the fifth round.

Mid­fielder Jake Gray has signed for Na­tional League club Wok­ing af­ter spend­ing time on trial with Cheltenham Town this sum­mer.

Gray also ap­peared on loan for the Robins, from Crys­tal Palace, dur­ing the 2014/15 cam­paign.

He has since played for Lu­ton Town and Yeovil Town, who he left at the end of last sea­son.

The 23 year old also trained with Wy­combe Wan­der­ers and Steve­nage in pre-sea­son.

He went on from the bench in Cheltenham’s 3-2 friendly de­feat by Burn­ley Un­der-23s in July and was due to start at Broms­grove Sport­ing, but the match was can­celled due to a wa­ter­logged pitch and he was told he would not be of­fered terms at Whad­don Road.

Wok­ing were pro­moted from Na­tional League South last sea­son via the play-offs.
