Luke Page Goes On Loan

Shildon AFC can confirm that Luke Page has gone on a one month loan to Seaham Red Star FC.

Jamie Tunstall, Shildon AFC Manager commented, “Luke has been brilliant since we returned to pre-season. He’s done alot of hard work and is probably ahead of where we expect him to be. We’re confident his injury is well behind him now and it’s just a case of Luke getting valuable game time on the pitch to get him up to speed. He’s shown his quality in the minutes he’s played for us and I’m sure it won’t be long before he’s back to full speed”
