MACAULAY LANGSTAFF has been sent on a one-month loan to former club Blyth Spartans and Elliott Durrell has left York City.

Attacking midfielder Durrell made 10 National League North appearances for York, scoring his only goal against AFC Telford United in his final appearance for the Minstermen.

Meanwhile, 23-year-old striker Langstaff, pictured, has scored once from 21 league appearances, 18 of which have come off the bench.

His most recent goal came in the New Year's Day win over Bradford Park Avenue.

Speaking about Durrell, Watson said: “He needs to be playing every week. I couldn’t guarantee that. The system we play maybe doesn’t lend itself to his best position.

“It was worth bringing him in. He’s a very good player and he’s going to be a good player for somebody.

“The lads who have been in and around the team haven’t done a lot wrong and it was difficult to get him the games he needed.

“If nothing else, that might have helped him being here, getting minutes. Good luck to him."
