GAINSBOROUGH Trinity have signed striker Daryl Clare on loan from Cambridge United.
Club chairman Peter Swann confirmed the news on Tuesday night, as the Blues look to fill the void left by the injured Leon Mettam with Republic of Ireland B international Clare.
Swann said; “We can announce that we have agreed to take Daryl Clare on loan from Cambridge for an initial one month period.”
“With Metts out for a couple of weeks we felt it important we had cover at the start of the season and he will be an excellent addition to the squad.”
Clare and his new Gainsborough Trinity team-mates begin the Blue Square Bet North season on Saturday, when Solihull Moors are the visitors on the Northolme.
Then on Monday, Brian Little’s men will visit Hinckley United.
