Defender Dominic Agnew has joined Northern League side Ashington on a month-long loan.

The move will give the 18-year-old an opportunity to bolster his experience in senior football.

He could make his first appearance for the Colliers when they take on Northallerton Town on Saturday.

Agnew is a graduate of the South Shields Academy and is awaiting his first competitive appearance for the Mariners’ first-team. He signed his first senior contract with the club in the summer.

We’d like to wish him well for his spell with Ashington and look forward to welcoming him back.
