Caines, a team mate of both Mark Yates and John Finnigan at Cheltenham Town, joined us at the start of this season and soon became a regular in the side chipping in with his fair share of goals, especially in the last few minutes of the game. One such came in the final seconds of the home game against Crawley Town last October when he joined in with a five man attack and scored a last gasp winner after we had battered the visitors for ninety minutes without making the breakthrough.
In recent games, ever since the terrible defeat in the Trophy to Stevenage, he has been either out injured or on the bench. In effect it seemed he was taking the rap for our Cup exit.
Coming in are two young twenty one year old lads from Port Vale and Chesterfield. Luke Prosser was the first following his release from Vale earlier today in readiness for arriving here later this afternoon. Just shy of the deadline at 5 o'clock Kerry was signed on loan from Chesterfield and both will now stay at Aggborough until the end of the season.
Prosser made the breakthrough to the Vale first team in the 2007-08 season making five appearances for the club. The following season he racked up a very decent twenty seven games but then this season, following an un-used sub visit to Aggborough for a pre season friendly, he has only made three appearances. He was sent out on loan to Salisbury City just after the start of the season and played eleven times for them.
The other new face, Kerry, has followed an almost identical pattern to Prosser and made thirty nine showings, scoring four times, before not figuring at all this term. He has been out on loan a couple of times at Torquay Utd and Alfreton Town.
Both new players will be in the squad that faces Salisbury this Saturday.
