WARRINGTON Town will have two new players in their squad for tomorrow's clash with South Shields.

Manager Mark Beesley has managed to secure a left-back – his top recruitment priority – in the shape of Lewis Coulton, who joins on a month's loan from Championship club Preston North End.

The 18-year-old - a Scotland under 19s international - has just finished a loan spell at Town's promotion rivals Bamber Bridge. He made eight appearances for them, with the last being in the 4-1 loss to Yellows on New Year's Day.

His arrival ends Yellows' long pursuit of a left-back to ease the strain caused by a long-term injury to Eddie Clarke, who occupied the position for the early part of the season but is ruled out with a groin injury.

Beesley has also boosted his options further up the pitch with the signing of winger Lewis Bell, who has joined on loan from League Two outfit Carlisle United.

Bell, 19, is highly-rated at Brunton Park and has made six appearances for the Cumbrians' first team but will spend the next month at Cantilever Park.

Both Coulton and Bell are set to be in Town's squad for tomorrow's game against third-place Shields at Cantilever Park.
