Hartlepool United Take Craig Lynch On Loan

Craig Lynch has joined Hartlepool United on an emergency loan.

Martin O'Neill admitted earlier in the week that several fringe players and youngsters could be headed out on loan during the emergency window which opened today.

Hartlepool United wasted no time at all in snapping up Striker-come-Midfielder Craig Lynch on a short term loan deal. He can be recalled at any point after 28 days have passed.

Lynch made the trip to Korea this summer and got a small amount of game time in the final match against Groningen, although since then has been far from the first team picture and went without being handed a squad number as he was expected to continue his progression in the development squad.

Lynch did very well in the development squad during 2010/11 season, or "reserve team" as it was called back then scoring ten goals in twenty-one games, earning him several call ups to the first team under Steve Bruce. Eventually he made the breakthrough with two sub appearances against Wolves and Fulham.

The loan should do Lynch the world of good, especially if he gets some significant playing time like Ryan Noble did down at Victoria Park last season.

Lynch went straight into the squad for 'Pools game against Carlisle United today, and appeared as a 66th minute substitute in place of Jonathan Franks.
