York Press: York City sign Preston winger Will Hayhurst on loan York City sign Preston winger Will Hayhurst on loan

PRESTON winger Will Hayhurst will go straight into York City’s squad for tomorrow's home match with promotion hopefuls Chesterfield.

Hayhurst, 19, has agreed a one-month loan deal with the Minstermen and will compete with Josh Carson and Michael Coulson for a spot on the flanks.

The Republic of Ireland under-21 international, who has also represented his country at U19 and U17 level, has scored four goals in 37 matches for the Lilywhites.

He has only made the first XI four times this campaign, though, with his last start coming in this month’s 3-2 FA Cup replay win against Ipswich.

On Hayhurst’s arrival, City boss Nigel Worthington said: “He’s a natural left-footer with good energy and League One experience, who will give us another option in the wide areas.

“Sander (Puri) has been injured and we have been using Josh and Couls out there, so we wanted to bring in a bit more competition.”

Teenager Hayhurst will join former Deepdale team-mate Ben Davies at Bootham Crescent with the latter two-thirds of the way through a season-long loan with the Minstermen.

Ripon-born ex-Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is currently in charge of Preston and, with the pair having done business together for a second time this term, Worthington added: “It is important to have relationships in football.

“You have to make contacts and use them and, then, hopefully, reap the benefits.”

Great news - we need some attacking flair down the flanks - couldn't really understand why we returned Ryan Brobbel. Thank-you Simon Grayson, you are looking after the football fans in your home county with your loanees!! Hope NW puts Adam Reed in for Lewis Montrose and we look to create and deliver far more goal scoring opportunities to-morrow night. COYR.

After NW chose to publically castigate Josh Carson for giving away that free kick - My hunch is that Josh Carson will be replaced by Will Hayhurst against Chesterfield.

With nine hours of heavy rain forecast to fall prior to kick off tomorrow evening my hunch is that a game against Chesterfield is in doubt. If the game does fall foul of the weather at least the injured strikers have a few more days to potentially recover.

it's great news we've got another winger the lad sounds alright so now lets hope we open up play use the WHOLE pitch not just one side of it and give the midfield a little bit of space get the wide men wide try to get the ball to them let them do thier job to feed the srtikers and we'll be ok, if we're just going to play narrow tight football (just to lessen the chance of getting beat which can backfire, saturday proves only to well i think ) then what is the point of getting another winger in. not trying to sound negative but just saying
