Town bring in new faces as trio leave

THE SEASON might be meandering its way to a close for Hucknall Town. But they remain active in the transfer market.

Winger Lavell White has been brought in from Nottinghamshire non-league outfit Dunkirk, while 24-year-old striker Tony Edwards has been snapped up on loan from Blue Square Bet North side Boston United.

The fresh recruits are to compensate for the loss of winger Seb Lake-Gaskin, striker Aaron Farrell and defender Craig Reid, who have all decided to return to the Birmingham area after brief spells at Watnall Road.

The departure of ex-West Brom youngster Lake-Gaskin, who has gone back to Rugby Town, is a particular blow for The Yellows because he made a telling impact in a handful of appearances.

However, with Town tightening their budget for the rest of the season, Lake-Gaskin, Farrell and Reid did not fancy the extensive travelling involved to matches.

White, who can play on either flank, impressed on his debut at Lincoln United.

Edwards, who has scored a hatful of goals for Boston’s reserve-team this term, also made his first start as The Yellows try to offset the absence of dual strikers Grant Ryan and Phil Massingham, both of whom are suspended.

With The Yellows’ squad looking decidedly thin for the remaining six matches of the campaign, they have been further hit by a hamstring injury to midfielder Anthony Gregory, which could see him sidelined for the rest of the season.
