Transfer Updates

The club can confirm that the loan deals for Newcastle United duo Michael Riley and Marcus Maddison have now expired and the pair have returned to St James Park.

The club would like to thank both players for their efforts at Croft Park and wish them all the best in their future careers.

The club can also confirm that midfield duo Jake Turnbull and Sam Hodgson have been registered for Northern League side Ashington, where they join Jordan Mellish, who has also recently signed for the Colliers.

Manager Paddy Atkinson commented “Getting Sam and Jake out on loan is useful as they will get some competitive games under their belt, as well as helping out Ashington at the same time.”

“Sam has been injured for a while with his broken ribs, so it would not have been fair on him to have thrown him straight in with no match fitness and it also wouldn’t be fair on the other lads in the squad. Jake is only a young lad and getting some experience in the Northern League will do him good.”

“I would also like to thank the two lads from Newcastle and wish them all the best and also like to express my thanks to Newcastle United for their assistance with the deals.”
