Croydon Advertiser/Daniel Jones - EXCLUSIVE: Ambrose set for QPR
- DARREN Ambrose will be sold to Queens Park Rangers next week unless the consortium trying to rescue Crystal Palace agree to fund the club through the summer.
- The Advertiser understands that former manager Neil Warnock has tabled an offer of £750,000 to prize the Eagles top scorer away from Selhurst Park.
- And with no money to pay May’s wages Palace administrator Brendan Guilfoyle will be forced to sanction the transfer unless CPFC 2010 tell him otherwise.
- Guilfoyle revealed at a question and answer session with the club’s fans yesterday that the consortium - headed by Eagles fans Steve Parish and Martin Long - are unwilling to finance the club until they know a company voluntary agreement will be passed by the club’s creditors.

Championship Clubs Receiving 2.2 Million Next Season From Premiership
Watford Observer/Frank Smith
Championship clubs to receive £2.2m from Premier League next season
17th May 2010

The new agreement between the Football League and Premier League will result in Championship clubs such as Watford being paid almost £2.2m next season.
- Chairman and chief executives of Football League clubs met at Walsall’s Bank’s Stadium last week to discuss the plans and decided to agree to the revised solidarity and parachute payments proposed by the Premier League.
- Last season the base solidarity payment to all Championship clubs were meant to be £432,000 but it rose to £833,000 due to Birmingham City being promoted back to the top flight in the 2007/08 season. There was also a seperate payment made due to league position the previous campaign.

However, the new agreement means sides will now receive £2.187m but will not earn any more money based on league position or clubs being promoted back to the Premier League.
- Parachute payments to clubs relegated from the Premier League will now be paid over four years instead of two.
- For the last three years relegated sides received around £12m a season and that was set to rise to £16m this summer.
- But now instead of around £32m over two seasons, the likes of Burnley and Hull will receive £48m over four years.
- Relegated clubs will now land £16m for the first two years and then another two payments of £8m the following two seasons.
- A Football League spokesman said: "Following a frank but constructive meeting at Walsall's Banks's Stadium, Football League clubs have voted to accept the Premier League's revised solidarity and parachute payments proposals.
- "Whilst many clubs expressed concerns about the proposals, their acceptance was considered the only viable way forward.
- "The Football League will now work in good faith, with the Premier League, to ensure that the resulting contract and regulatory changes are good for both competitions and football as a whole." Watford Observer

This is Cornwall - Warnock's Queens Park Rangers set for pre-season visit to Bodmin
- BODMIN Town have been picked out as the only club in Cornwall that Championship side Queens Park Rangers will visit on their pre-season visit to the West Country.
- Boss Neil Warnock confirmed yesterday that Rangers will take on Darren Gilbert's side at Priory Park on Wednesday July 14 (7.30pm).
- And Warnock told Guardian Sport: "I've brought sides down to Cornwall in pre-season before and it's always a great night for the lads at Bodmin.
- "They always look after us and the pitch is as good as ever, so Bodmin has always been a favourite venue of mine to take a team.
- "We are going to be based at Trethorne, just along the A30, so a trip to Bodmin is ideal. We're looking forward to it."
- Bodmin chairman Mike Barbery said: "We are delighted to have QPR coming here. Hopefully we can attract a big crowd and get our pre-season off to a great start."
- The football club are believed to be involved in positive preliminary discussions with the town council at the moment to get the go-ahead to improve the dressing room area at Priory Park before QPR's visit, although Mr Barbery refused to comment on this issue. - Bodmin, who won the Cornwall Senior Cup this season and finished runners-up in the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League premier division and the League Cup, are regarded as the best non-league team in Cornwall apart from Truro City, yet have the worst-rated dressing room facilities in the league, apart from Dartmouth Town.
- It is hoped that the town council, who lease the grandstand, which incorporates the dressing rooms, to the football club, will give the green light to much-needed short term improvements.
- œ Queens Park Rangers will also be visiting fellow Carlsberg South West Peninsula League side Tavistock, on Monday July 12 (7pm), and complete their week in the area with a game against League Two side Torquay United at Plainmoor on Friday July 16.
- Warnock said: "Tavistock asked me to open some new facilities last year but I haven't had chance to bring a team down here until now.
- "They've got some fantastic facilities now and I'm looking forward to officially opening them in July."
- Rangers will use the Duchy College facilities near Callington for training purposes during their stay in Cornwall. Cornish Guardian

Posted on: Wed 19 May 2010
- Neil Warnock has revealed how Jamie Mackie's infectious enthusiasm and potential encouraged the R's gaffer to make him his first summer signing this week.
- The 24-year-old striker put pen to paper on a four-year contract and the QPR Manager told www.qpr.co.uk: "I am delighted to bring Jamie to the Club.

"When I first met him, there was nothing else on his mind but to play for QPR. His enthusiasm rubs off on everybody."
- Mackie scored eight times for Plymouth last season as the Pilgrims dropped out of the Championship and Warnock added: "He is an exciting young player who I have always liked.
- "Through my connections down in the south west I have got a lot of newspaper cuttings of the Plymouth games and I know he has been a stand-out striker for them this season.
- "He has got ability. I remember seeing him play against Crystal Palace's Nathaniel Clyne, and he did very, very well. I knew then that he had something about him.
- "Jamie is the sort of player we are looking for. He fits the bill."
- Warnock also revealed how the potential of the young marksman is still to be realised.
- "There's a lot more to come from him," he added. "He's not the finished article by any means but he has got pace, power and enthusiasm - and his work rate is second to none.
- "He's got a lot going for him if we can channel it in the right direction."
- Mackie can play up front or wide, and Warnock is keen to utilise his new signing's versatility on the pitch.
- "I think he can do all the jobs up front," the R's boss said. "I've seen him as a lone ranger up the middle and I've seen him wide on either flank.
- "Whatever job you ask him to do you know what you are going to get from him. He's a 100-per-center and that's why the crowds like him, because he gives you everything."
