The club are delighted to announce that the loan agreement with Port Vale for winger Alex Hurst has been extended until the end of the season.
Hurst signed for the Avenue in October 2018 and quickly became a fan favourite. Following some strong performances on the pitch he caught the attention of Port Vale who invited him to train with them in the 2019/20 pre-season. Hurst did enough to impress and the Valiant’s made the club an offer we couldn’t refuse to secure his services, however as part of the agreement Hurst would be loaned back to the Avenue until at least January.
The club can also confirm that Lewis Rathbone has left the club and Isaac Marriot has returned to parent club Huddersfield Town both by mutual consent.
