Earlier in his career he spent time with Evo-Stik Northern Premier League club Ilkeston and joined County after starring in the FA Youth Cup for the Robins.

He has stepped up to Under 23s football with the Rams and will now spend time on loan with Darlington as they look to continue their play-off push.

Goalkeeper Wilczynski joins the Quakers from their former landlords Bishop Auckland, having impressed for the Two-Blues in the Northern League this season.

A former Huddersfield Town academy player, he spent loan spells with Trafford and FC United.

He joined Bishops after leaving AFC Fylde and played a big part in their impressive performances in the Northern League and in reaching the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, when they were beaten by the Quakers National League North rivals Stockport County.

Both players joined the Quakers in time to be available for selection for their league fixture at home to Gloucester City on Saturday.
