South Shields have seen two more players head out on loan.

The pair are the fourth and fifth South Shields players to leave on short-term loan spells in recent weeks.

The pair have penned month-long deals at Blackwell Meadows, with the Mariners currently unable to play matches or train together due to national coronavirus restrictions.

Darlington's National League North season is continuing during the national lockdown, meaning Boney and Lowe will be given an opportunity to compete for game-time over the next month and to maintain their fitness.
