18-year-old attacking midfielder Sean Whaler has joined Banbury United on a youth loan from Northampton Town.
Whaler is a versatile player, who as well as playing on either wing can also play in a more central attacking role, as well as at right-back. He joined Northampton Town at under-9 level and has progressed through their academy to complete his scholarship and sign a two-year professional deal last summer.
He has made two first-team appearances for the Cobblers this season, coming on as a substitute in two Checkatrade Trophy games against Wycombe Wanderers and Fulham U21s. Whaler has recently completed a two-month loan spell with Northern Premier League East Division side AFC Mansfield, playing regularly on the wing for their first team.
He now steps up a level to have a spell on loan with the Puritans. The loan paperwork is initially for a month, though of course may be extended with agreement of all parties.
