We can today confirm that defender Jake Lawlor has joined Darlington FC on loan.

Jake, 30, started his career as a youngster at Manchester United, before moving on to non league football with Liversedge, Ossett Town and Harrogate RA before joining Guiseley in 2013.

He had a brief loan spell at Fylde before he moved to Salford City in the summer of 2018 after making 210 appearances for Guiseley.

He then moved to Wrexham in September 2018 and made 76 appearances for them, before switching to EFL side Harrogate Town in the summer of 2020.  He made 21 appearances for them in the EFL League Two before being released.

After joining Pools, Jake completed a short term loan with National League side Bromley.

Jake will be on loan to the Quakers till the 12th January 2022.

Darlington chief executive officer David Johnston said; “We are very grateful to Hartlepool, and in particular their chairman Raj Singh, for their help in getting this deal over the line.”

Pools interim Manager Antony Sweeney added: This is a real opportunity for Jake to go and get some vital minutes at a very competitive level. He obviously had a frustrating time during his loan spell with Bromley but we are grateful we can work with local teams like Darlington to send Jake there and get his match sharpness at the right level.
