YORK City's out-of-favour goalkeeper Scott Flinders has joined National League rivals Macclesfield Town on a month's loan.
Flinders has not played for the Minstermen since being banned last month for directing racial abuse at AFC Wimbledon striker Lyle Taylor.
He had also been dropped by York manager Jackie McNamara who signed former Blackpool goalkeeper Kyle Letheren as a replacement.
Flinders, 30, completed his five game ban last week as York hosted Tranmere Rovers but was not even on the bench for the weekend defeat against Dover Athletic.
He will initially stay at Macclesfield until October 18 and is set to make his debut this weekend against Guiseley.
Macclesfield's other opponents during the 28 days of the loan are Wrexham, North Ferriby United, Barrow, and Boreham Wood.
Since arriving at York two summers ago, former England under-20 international Flinders has made a total of 52 appearances for York and was a regular in the side relegated from the Football League last season. 
The incident involving AFC Wimbledon striker Taylor took place during a league game at the Kingsmeadow Stadium on March 16. His case was not resolved until August 24.
According to a report published by the FA regulatory commission, Flinders had reacted verbally after Taylor grabbed his testicles.
Flinders asked: "What the **** did you grab my ******** for?" to which Taylor replied: "Because your missus doesn't, does she?"
At this point, Flinders allegedly said: "But she doesn't like your kind."
Flinders was fined £1,250 for his comments in addition to receiving a five game ban. He also made a £250 contribution towards the costs of the hearing and was ordered to attend a one-to-one FA Education course.
It remains to be seen whether Flinders, who is under contract until the end of the current season, has any sort of future at Bootham Crescent.
York currently sit 17th in the National League table - only two points above the relegation zone - after picking up just seven points from their last eight games.
