Football - Bettinelli leaves Stanley

Goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli has been recalled by Barclays Premier League club Fulham from his loan spell with Accrington.

The 21-year-old had been with James Beattie's squad since August following an injury to Ian Dunbavin and had gone on to make 19 appearances between the sticks.

His loan with Stanley was due to last for the reminder of the season but, with Fulham carrying several injuries in their goalkeeping department, they have recalled Bettinelli ahead of their Boxing Day clash with Norwich.
