Starcenko & Thornton Go Out On Loan

We can confirm that academy graduates Aleks Starcenko and Will Thornton have both gone out on loan for month.

Aleks has joined Bet Victor Premier Division side Hyde United for a temporary spell to boost his playing time and experience of mens football.

Starcenko links up with former Lion Jack Dyche who made the move to Ewen Fields in the summer.

Also making a temporary move away from Nethermoor is Will Thornton who has moved to Gainsborough Trinity under the stewardship of newly appointed Curtis Woodhouse.

Will has now recovered from his broken jaw sustained in pre-season and makes the switch to the Northolme to boost his match fitness.

Thornton will notice a couple of familiar faces in the Trinity squad with Kingsley James and Curtis Morrison in their ranks as well as Gavin Allot.

Also Lloyd Allinson has joined Will at Gainsborough on a dual-registration agreement, the keeper has also featured for Ashton United this season on the same terms but now links up with Trinity.

Returning to Nethermoor is Sam Scrivens who has enjoyed a loan spell with Matlock Town but the striker will now be available for selection for Saturday’s trip to Gateshead.
