SCOTT HARRISON, the former Hartlepool United centre-half, has signed for Spennymoor on loan.

After leaving Pools in the summer and signing for Falkirk, the former Sunderland trainee has made 23 appearances in the Scottish Championship.

But he has now joined Moors’ promotion push in the National League North.

The Middlesbrough-born defender said: “I’m very pleased to be joining the club for the rest of the season.

“It’s a good chance for me to get a good run of games and hopefully I can help the club to get to where they want to be.

“It’s also good to be working with Jason Ainsley as I have known him since I was at school. I can’t wait to get going and I am looking forward to the challenge!”

Harrison made his first-team debut with Darlington in the National League, before moving to the Black Cats and then onto Pools, where he made 105 outings.
