Teenage striker Jacob Hazel has joined neighbouring non-league club Matlock Town on loan.
Hazel, 18, will spend a month with the Gladiators and is eligible to play in their FA Trophy tie at home to Luton Town this afternoon.
Hazel is a first-year professional who made his senior debut in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy game at home to Oldham in September. He also featured in the league games against York and Torquay later that month.
After scoring twice for the reserves at Gateshead on Monday night, Hazel has been given the opportunity to have a temporary spell at Matlock to further his development.
