SPENNYMOOR TOWN’S home tie today in the FA Trophy against Telford has been postponed – but they will have a new player in time for the re-arranged game.

Moors have signed centre half Scott Harrison on loan from Scottish Championship side Falkirk, and as long as international clearance has come through, he’ll be in the side for the re-arranged game on Tuesday at the Brewery Field.

Harrison, who left Hartlepool United during the summer, has started 14 league games for Falkirk this season, scoring twice, and another five in cup competitions, scoring once.

The 25-year-old 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 manager 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 is Moors' second signing in as many weeks following midfielder Liam Agnew joining on loan from Harrogate Town.

Moors manager Jason Ainsley has tracked Harrison, who started his career at Darlington in the 2011-12 season, and said: “Scott is someone I have kept a close eye on for a number of years, especially when he was at Hartlepool.

“He is a big, strong lad with great experience for his age and possesses brilliant leadership qualities.

“With Rob Atkinson suffering a hamstring injury on Tuesday against Boston, it’s the perfect time to bring him in from Falkirk where he has made over 20 appearances this season.

“I believe he will be a fantastic addition to our squad until the remainder of the season.”

The match referee carried out an inspection at the Brewery Field on Friday morning, and postponed the game.

Elsewhere in the Trophy today, Blyth Spartans have a huge task on their hands at former Football League club Leyton Orient, who are top of the National League.

In the EvoStik League Premier Division, league leaders South Shields are at Mickleover Sports, while Whitby are at Stalybridge.

In the EvoStik League East, Marske United head for Cleethorpes having won there already in the Trophy this season, while Morpeth are at Lincoln United.
