Long-serving midfielder Dale Whitham has joined fellow Vanarama National League North side FC United of Manchester on loan as he aims to get games under his belt ahead of the season run-in.
The 26-year-old returned to action after a short illness on Saturday against Altrincham, making his 17th appearance of the season, and 362nd overall for The Magpies.
We both feel Dale will benefit from some added game time, especially after he’s missed a few games recent due to illness. Neil Reynolds knows Dale and the kind of player he is, so it’s a good fit for both camps. Dale will no doubt return raring to go for the final part of the season, and that can only be a good thing for us – Jamie Vermiglio
