Lions Bolstered By Double Loan Signing

The Lions hope to have two new faces in their squad today at Chester.

Two loan signings have been made in Sheffield United’s young midfielder George Cantrill and Southport’s experienced centre-back Josh Langley, both of whom join the Lions for a month.

Cantrill, 19, played in the Sheffield United Development Squad alongside current on loan goalkeeper Marcus Dewhurst. The pair were among six scholars who signed professional contracts for The Blades last March.

Langley, 26, was a scholar and then a pro for four years at Wigan, the club where his father Kevin holds the record for most appearances.
Warrington-born Langley left Wigan in March 2014 to sign for AFC Fylde, where he became a lynchpin of their defence making over 100 appearances for The Coasters.

He joined Southport in July 2018 and this season has had a loan spell at Altrincham.

The pair are looking to make their debuts for Guiseley pending league and FA approval.
