ATFC can confirm that midfielder Dale Whitham has joined neighbours Buxton on a month's loan.
Dale joined us in the summer from Chorley after spending nine years at the Magpies and notching over 300 appearances and scoring 69 goals.
After impressing throughout pre-season and stamping his mark on the midfield, Dale started in our opening day defeat at Brackley, our second game against Boston before making just one further substitute appearance.
Dale's game time has since been limited after the Reds went on a four game winning run with few changes to the line up and the recent arrival of Conor Branson from Altrincham.
Dale has been fantastic since he joined us, he's a good player and he had a great pre season. However his game time has been limited and we want him to stay sharp and stay fit so it's all about minutes and fitness for Dale.
The move to Buxton is a great one, it's a competitive league and a good side he'll be moving to. We wish him all the best during his spell.
