Colne Football Club can announce that Matthew Makinson has joined Northern Premier League side Atherton Collieries on loan until the end of the season.
The highly-rated defender featured heavily in the clubs FA Cup success this season and only departs the Sovereign Play in search of first team football having failed to win back his place following injury towards the end of last year.
Matt will return to the club ready for next season and we wish him well during his spell at Colls.
Another player leaving the club this week is Midfielder Anthony Donaldson.
The no-nonsense midfielder who was an instant success after signing in the summer has also struggled to hold down a starting role in Steve Cunningham’s side in recent months.
The club go on record to thank Tony for his service and wish him well in the future.
