As another round of Vanarama National League North fixtures are fastly approaching, each club is going about their business and making news ahead of their games. There have been several pieces of transfer news and here is a select few coming out of the league.

Hibbs has struggled to break into the first team this campaign and a switch to a side lower down in the table is sure to offer the 21-year old some much needed playing time.
Hibbs is a favourite among the MBi Shay Stadium crowd so fans will be waiting to see what sort of impact he has whilst on loan and will be hoping he can turn manager Billy Heath’s head.
Gainsborough Trinity have recently appointed Dave Frecklington to be their manager and it didn’t take the former Lincoln United man long to swoop for one of his old players.
Michael Jacklin is the man he has brought with him to Gainsborough, looking to an experienced player to sure up that back line.
