GUISELEY have sent another young striker out on loan, with Frank Mulhern joining Vanarama National League North promotion chasers Harrogate Town until December 22.

The 20-year-old joined the Lions in the summer from Huddersfield Town’s under-23 squad, having gone to the Terriers from Leeds United last February.

But since Guiseley manager Paul Cox brought in nine new signings, including striker Reece Thompson, Mulhern has found opportunities limited of late.

Thompson last week joined Boston United on loan until January.

Mulhern was one of four members of Town’s under-23 squad released following their promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Capped by the Republic of Ireland at under-18 and under-19 level, Mulhern, who hails from South Elmsall, was in the Huddersfield Town Academy for nearly four years joining the Terriers at under-19 level in August 2005 before departing for Leeds United in May 2009.

He subsequently turned professional with the Elland Road club in the summer of 2015 following a two-year scholarship - a deal he extended a year later.

He played for Vanarama National League side Southport during a brief loan spell in September 2016.
