Two more spots get filled:

18 June - Michael Collins appointed at Bradford
19 June - Mark Yates leaves Solihull Moors to take over at Macclesfield

which leaves just Doncaster without a boss, along with Charlton, where Lee Bowyer has been in caretaker care for three months while the club awaits the completion of a takeover by asn Autralian based consortium, who may or may not be preparing to appoint Harry Kewell....

12 July - another of the worst kept secrets in football sees Antonio Conte finally removed at Chelsea (65th and final casualty of 2017-18, 16th from the Premier League)

Ex NApoli manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to take over, but when or whether they'll actually announce it is anyone's guess

Quiet September:

7 Sept - Gabriele Ciofe arrives at Crawley
10 Sept - Michael Duff takes over at Cheltenham

But is that the calm before the storm, as I suspect we are on the verge of a whole pile of departures any day soon, starting with

30th Sept - Dean Austin (7) sacked by Northampton...
2 Oct - ...to be replaced by Keith Curle

Rumour-mill update on Notts County given the OUFC links - word on the street is that negotiations with Appleton took place but broke down (no idea what over, assuming this rumour to be true). The current list of possibles includes a number of former managers - including Shaun Derry.
