Dale dispense with Watt

Rochdale boss Keith Hill has decided to release Jerome Watt who had been on a short-term contract at Spotland. The 22-year-old joined Dale at the start of the season after helping Salisbury clinch promotion to the Blue Square Premier last term. However, the ex-Blackburn Rovers trainee failed to make a first-team appearance for the club. A statement on the club's official website read: "With his chances of first-team football severely restricted by the return to fitness of Joe Thompson and no fewer than four other wingers on the books, the club have reluctantly decided not to extend the short-term deal that Jerome Watt has been on since impressing as a summer trialist."
