Young Pools goalkeeper Ryan Catterick has joined Guisborough Town on a short-term loan deal.
The 19-year-old is yet to make his First Team bow at The Super 6 Stadium but signed professional terms with the Club last summer and has acted as understudy to Scott Loach.
However, boss Matthew Bates is keen for highly-rated Catterick to gain senior experience by going on loan and deal has been agreed for him to link-up with the Northern League Division One outfit.
Catterick will now go straight in to contention to make his debut for The Priorymen when they host Shildon at The King George V Ground on Wednesday evening.
“Ryan has developed well but the next stage for him is to play some regular football,” explained Bates.
“He’s worked hard and come on a lot under Ross Turnbull so we’re looking forward to seeing him challenged in a First Team environment with Guisborough.”
