Arrival | McIntosh signs on loan from Wrexham

Blyth Spartans are pleased to announce the loan signing of forward Leighton McIntosh after receiving international clearance. 

The 27-year-old becomes the second player to move to Croft Park today, following in the footsteps of Aaron Cunningham in joining until the end of the season. 

McIntosh, capped for Scotland at under-19s level, is a well-travelled figure, though has predominantly spent his career in his homeland.

He began his career at Scottish Championship outfit Dundee – including loan spells at Montrose and Arbroath. 

Permanent moves to Montrose and Peterhead then followed before briefly spending time in Iceland with UMF Selfoss. 

He returned to Scotland with Arbroath and then switched to Airdrieonians, where he netted 17 times in 41 appearances. 

At the end of his contract, he joined National League side Wrexham last summer. Since then, he has played 12 times and scored three goals. 

He is still available for selection ahead of Saturday’s National League North encounter with Altrincham at Croft Park. 

Manager Lee Clark: “I am delighted to finally sign Leighton. I tried to sign five/six weeks ago. 

“We believe he can give us a genuine goal threat for the remainder of the season. 

“We thank Wrexham and Dean Keates for their help on this deal.”
