Taylor in as Benjamin departs

ASHINGTON born striker Glen Taylor has returned to his hometown club on a month’s loan.

Taylor, 22, who joined Spennymoor in the close season, made his debut for the Colliers on Saturday in the 6-1 defeat by Darlington 1883 at Heritage Park.

He said: “I was in the Moors squad and maybe getting run outs of 20 minutes or so – but I wanted to play full games.

“I had other options on the table but I chose Ashington and it’s good to be back.

“Apart from my best mate Andrew Johnson being at the club, it’s also a great set up.”

Colliers boss Gary Middleton said: “I’ve been trying to get Glen for the last two or three months and I’m thrilled to get him back.”

Meanwhile striker Alex Benjamin has left the club.
