Apologies in advance if I found this article elsewhere on this board...

...but here's an article from May (in Korean) about foreign players who signed for K-League clubs and didn't end up playing a single match.

And... he's off again. Cureton has left Southern League Premier Division (level 7) club Farnborough to play for... Southern League Premier Division club Bishop's Stortford, apparently his 18th career club. Sounds like Farnborough wasn't able/willing to continue paying his travel expenses (driving in from Essex) any longer, so he's found a rival club closer to home.

I thought his spell at the Ferrets may have killed his managerial career but no, Martin Rennie has managed to find himself gainful employment with Indianapolis-based United Soccer League side Indy Eleven.

This will be their first season in the second tier of US football following their switch from the North American Soccer League. It remains to be seen how well they do because they pretty much finished bottom of the combined standings for the 2017 NASL season and this is meant to be something of a step up. Looks as though he might be in a similar situation to that with the Ferrets as they seem to be building a brand new squad from scratch having released pretty much all of their NASL squad..

(adjusts pedant's cap)

NASL was the U.S. division two up to (and including) the 2017 season; USL was division three. However, the NASL has essentially collapsed (a long, sordid tale there), so the USL will become division two for the 2018 season. In essence, Indy Eleven will remain a division-two club, despite changing leagues.

A decent appointment for Rennie, who, like his late compatriot Porterfield, will likely have a tough time ever managing professionally in the UK after many years overseas.

Niall McGinn back to his best after his Korean (mis)adventure... in almost any other game his goal yesterday (Aberdeen's third) would have been the absolute standout highlight but for the howitzer of a second from Scott McKenna.
