Sutton United have bolstered their attacking options with the loan signing of Brett Williams from Torquay.
The 31-year-old re-joined the Gulls at the start of the year, but has struggled to get into the first-team since Gary Johnson took over as manager.
“It was a difficult situation for him living away from home for most of the week, not playing at the end of the week’s training due to the form of our two other strikers,” said Johnson. “We talked about it and it was difficult for him travelling across the south of the country as a substitute and the proximity of his new family.
“We decided I would allow him to go and play nearer to his home to get him some games, over the Christmas period especially. Sutton came in needing a striker and so we did a deal with them for a month. It’s not the best of months to lose one of your strikers. However, we made an agreement that when someone came in for him we would allow him to go out on loan.”
Sutton have also welcomed the return of forward Jonah Ayunga following a successful loan spell with Havant & Waterlooville.
Paul Doswell has also handed academy players Jude Mason and Crossley Lema their first contracts and confirmed winger Tom Bolarinwawill come back into contention this weekend after being sidelined for a month, and Bradley Pearce looks to have recovered from his gashed leg to feature in the squad at Halifax.
