Young midfielder makes temporary switch to gain experience

4 January 2019

Northampton Town youth team midfielder Scott Pollock has joined St Neots Town on a temporary, work experience basis.

Pollock will join fellow Northampton Town youth teamers Ryan Hughes and Jack Daldy at the Evostik Southern League Premier Division Central side as they gain experience playing first team football with and against senior players.

"As we said with Jack and Ryan, Scott will benefit hugely from this spell," said under 18s coach Jon Brady.

"We are actively looking to get a number of our under 18 players out playing first team football week in, week out at a non-league level, to see how they cope with the extra demands and pressures that first team football brings.

"Our priority at youth level is player development, we have personal player development plans in place for each of the youth team and these work experience spells form part of that.

"They will learn a lot from these spells and we will monitor their progress."

Goalkeeper Bradley Lashley is also out on work experience at Wellingborough Town, while young professionals Joe Iaciofano and Sean Whaler are on loan at AFC Mansfield.
