YORK CITY striker Ben Hirst has gone out on loan to Scarborough Athletic.

The teenager, who made five appearances for the Minstermen last season but has yet to feature this term, will spend a month with the Evo-Stik League first division north outfit.

A club statement said: "The 17-year-old professional has found chances limited since making his debut for the club on the opening day of last season and will now spend the next four weeks with the Seadogs."
