Spennymoor Town has brought in 19-year-old midfielder Jack Diamond from Sunderland on a loan deal to the end of the season.
Diamond, who has spent his entire career with the Black Cats, has made three appearances for the first team in the EFL Checkatrade Trophy this season, as well as 15 outings in the Premier League 2, scoring three times. He first broke into the Black Cats’ under-18 side at the back end of the 2015-16 season.
A striker by trade, Diamond offers versatility as he can play anywhere across the front or on either flank.
Midfielder Lewis Hawkins has also returned to The Brewery Field for his second loan spell on a deal to end of the season from Hartlepool. Hawkins, 25, spent time with Moors during the 2015/16 Evo-Stik Northern Premier campaign.
The Teesside-born midfielder scored his first two goals in professional football within six minutes of each other in a 3–1 win over Barnet in March 2016, with his first goal winning Hartlepool’s Goal of the Season award.
He joined National League North club York City in November 2018 on loan before being recalled by Pools on 15 December 2018.
