Former Walsall full-back Netan Sansara has finally been given clearance to play for AFC Telford United after a protracted battle with the Scottish FA. Sansara, 21, first agreed non-contract terms with the Bucks two weeks ago, only to be told he would not be able to play until January as he was still contracted with Scottish side Dundee when the transfer window shut on September 1. But the left-back, who had played 27 games in League One for Walsall before making a short-term move to Dundee at the start of the season has now had the red tape lifted. Sansara went on trial to Grimsby Town earlier in the month but has now committed himself to the Bucks.

Former Walsall full-back Netan Sansara has finally been given clearance to play for AFC Telford United after a protracted battle with the Scottish FA.

Sansara, 21, first agreed non-contract terms with the Bucks two weeks ago, only to be told he would not be able to play until January as he was still contracted with Scottish side Dundee when the transfer window shut on September 1.

But the left-back, who had played 27 games in League One for Walsall before making a short-term move to Dundee at the start of the season has now had the red tape lifted.

Sansara went on trial to Grimsby Town earlier in the month but has now committed himself to the Bucks.

"I understand international clearance has finally gone through," Telford boss Andy Sinton confirmed today.

"He was on a one-month contract at Dundee when the window closed but he Scottish FA have waived it and the English FA have said that's okay.

"It means he's available now and he'll be a useful addition to the squad — but no-one comes in with any guarantees and he will have to prove he's better than what we've already got."

Meanwhile, striker Danny Carey-Bertram continued his loan spell at Hednesford with a hat-trick in the Pitmen's 9-0 win over Weymouth in the Zamaretto Southern League premier division on Saturday.

Carey-Bertram has now scored four goals in three games since linking up with former boss Rob Smith at Keys Park.

"It will do him good to bang in a few goals," added Sinton.

"I spoke to him last week and told him to keep working hard and get himself match fit.

"Hopefully he will come back here full of confidence when his loan spells ends in a couple of weeks."
