A teenage centre-half has been sent out on loan to an Evo-Stik Southern Premier outfit by Chesterfield.

Marshall Willock, 17, made his debut for league leaders Kettering Town on Saturday in the first game of his month-long loan spell.

He was part of a back line that kept a clean sheet in a resounding 5-0 win over Merthyr Town.

Kettering Town are one of the sides on the CV of Town assistant manager Nicky Eaden, who was a player, player assistant and assistant manager in two spells at Latimer Park.

Willock, who stands at 6ft 4ins tall, only joined the Spireites at the end of August, from Solihull Moors, penning a two-year deal.
