TEENAGE Town defender Shane Killock has joined Blue Square North club Hyde United on a month’s loan.
The Scholes-based 18-year-old, above, has been sent out to gain experience after agreeing a Town contract through to the summer of 2009.
Killock’s sole first-team appearance came in the 2-0 League I defeat at Crewe in September, and he has been on the bench nine times.
He will go straight into the squad for Hyde’s game at AFC Telford tomorrow, when the Cheshire side aim to maintain their play-off push.
Managed by Steve Waywell, Hyde’s squad includes former Town defender Tom Cowan and Huddersfield-based midfielder Nicky Clee.
Killock has previous non-league experience with Ossett Albion.
Town striker Lucas Akins is currently on loan at Blue Square Premier club Northwich Victoria.
