The club has four players overseas, three in League Two and four in non-league but not all of them saw action in a busy weekend of football.

Starting in League Two there was a win, a draw and a loss for our players involved at that level.

Jordan Slew had a lively debut for Rotherham United as The Millers defeated Northampton Town 3-1 at the New York Stadium.

Slew played the full match as goals from Daniel Nardiello, Ben Pringle and David Noble gave the home side a comfortable win. Clarke Carlisle's strike for Northampton in the 93rd minute mere consolation.

Anthony O'Connor's Burton Albion had to settle for a point as they were held to a 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon.

Gary Alexander had given the home side the lead on 26 minutes but Burton's Michael Symes netted on his debut to quickly even up the scores.

It was 1-1 at the break and that would be how it ended at the Cherry Red Records Stadium with O'Connor playing the full match at full back.

Three goals in the last 16 minutes condemned York City to defeat at Bootham Crescent as Morecambe ran out 4-1 winners over York City.

Lewis Alessandra gave the Shrimps the lead on 23 minutes and although Jason Walker levelled five minutes later, the game was won by Jim Bentley's side with strikes from Kevin Ellison and a brace from Jack Redshaw in the closing stages of the game.

Central defender Jack O'Connell played the full match for the Minstermen who are now without a win in their last five outings.

In Italy, Mauro Formica claimed an assist but it wasn't enough as Palermo lost 2-1 at home to Atalanta.

The Rosanero found themselves 2-0 down with 18 minutes to go and although Formica came off the bench to reduce arrears by laying on the pass for Nelson to score the visitors held out to claim the win.

Palermo remain second bottom in Serie A, with 17 points from their 23 games.

Ruben Rochina also came off the bench as Real Zaragoza drew 1-1 with Malaga at the Estadio La Rosaleda.

First half goals Helder Postiga and Isco saw the scores level, with Rochina introduced with 16 minutes remaining.

Diogo Rosado wasn't involved as Benfica beat Vitoria Setubal 3-0 on Sunday, whilst injury prevented Bruno Ribeiro from maintaining his good start with Linense. The defender missed out as his loan club defeated Paulista 3-0.

Hyde still await their first win of 2013 after a 2-1 loss away at Woking.

Christopher Dilo started in goal for the Tigers but couldn't prevent Billy Knott from bagging a brace to give the home side the win.

Osayamen Osawe came off the bench to play the last 17 minutes at the Kingfield Stadium.

Curtis Haley didn't feature as a last minute goal from Adam Rosco gave Chorley a 1-0 win over AFC Fylde, whilst there was no inclusion for Micah Evans as Macclesfield Town defeated Ebbsfleet 4-0 on Friday night.
