Experienced striker Liam Hearn has signed for Harrogate Town on loan from National League side Lincoln City until the end of the season.
Hearn joined the Imps in the summer after suffering a long absence due to an injury to his knee which he picked up in his time at Mansfield.
He began his career in the Central Midlands League with Santos FC before becoming a regular goalscorer for Hucknall Town. Moving on to Eastwood Town, Chasetown and Quorn, Liam blasted in a staggering 67 goals for Bulwell outfit Scots Grey in 2007/08, prompting interest from Alfreton Town boss Nicky Law who took him to the Impact Arena in 2008.
After netting 40 goals in his first two seasons with Alfreton Town, plus earning a cap for England C, his impressive tally of 31 from thirty-eight appearances in all competitions during 2010/11 saw him secure a move to Grimsby Town.
His form in front of goal continued during his first campaign at Blundell Park, with the Nottingham-born striker racking up 25 goals in all competitions by January before finishing the season with 29 goals in fifty-one appearances, scooping the Mariners’ supporters’ player of the year award in the process.
He left Grimsby by mutual consent in March 2014 before linking up with Mansfield.
Hearn, who has scored 10 goals from twenty-one appearances for City so far this season, linked up on loan with his former Mansfield boss Paul Cox at Barrow AFC, but that deal was cut short after he was re-called by the Imps.
He made his Town debut on Saturday against AFC Telford United.
