Hyde United midfielder Luke Porritt has started a one-month loan to Evo-Stik East Division side Tadcaster Albion.
He will be joining former teammates Paddy Miller, Harry Coates and James Hodges. With Kyle Harrison leaving Hyde to join Radcliffe, manager Darren Kelly has made the following statement regarding both decisions:
“Kyle is a big loss to our club. Kyle last season was in team of the year and deserved so.
“This season, Kyle has had a few injuries, which forced us into getting a loan signing in and since Kyle was not 100% fit by the time the loan was up we divided to extend the loan signing until the end of the season. Now Kyle has regained full fitness he has found it difficult to get back in the team due to Dom’s performances and in my opinion Kyle is too good a player to seat on the bench, and we decided when Radcliffe came in for him he thought it would be best to go elsewhere and get some much needed game time.
“We will all miss Kyle dearly for the outstanding man and player he is but it won’t be the last we hear of him.”
On Luke Porritt, Kelly said:
“Luke has gone out on loan to Tadcaster Albion for one month due to this season struggling with injuries and illness. We know Luke will gain valuable game time at Tadcaster and help him rediscover the high fitness levels and form that made him one of the players of last season in the league.”
