Thank you to Sheffield Wednesday for their “excellent relationship” as one of their loanees makes an impression outside of S6.
Luke Jackson, a young goalkeeper, signed a one-month contract with Gainsborough Trinity last month. This week, it was revealed that the term had been extended to include mid-January.
The 21-year-old is off to a great start in the PitchingIn Northern Premier League, having just lost once, in the FA Trophy against his old team, Guiseley. He has won five of his six games thus far.
Russ Wilcox, the manager of the team, has praised the influence of the young goalie and paid homage to his parent club.
“I am delighted to have extended Luke’s loan with us from Sheffield Wednesday – a big thank you to them for making this happen,” Wilcox said in a statement posted on the team’s official website. Luke, who recorded a clean sheet on Saturday, has been a great addition to the team. With any luck, more will come after.”
“The Holy Blues can confirm that Goalkeeper, Luke Jackson’s loan from Sheffield Wednesday has been extended until January 20, 2024,” read a statement from the club confirming his extension. We would like to express our gratitude to the Owls for their ongoing support of our great relationship.
“Goalkeeper Jackson has made five appearances in the Pitching In Northern Premier League during his undefeated league debut at the Holy Blues. The goalkeeper has won three times and drawn twice against teams that are presently ranked in the top five.
But this weekend will be a difficult test for Gainsborough as they try to continue their winning streak. Jackson and his colleagues will go to Radcliffe, who sit atop the table, in an attempt to add three more points to their total.
