Wainwright to leave Darlington
from The Northern Echo website at http://www.northernecho.co.uk

Winger Neil Wainwright is on the verge of leaving Darlington on loan for the second time this season.
The experienced but out-of-favour Wainwright is due to join relegation-threatened Mansfield Town.
Both clubs have yet to finalise the deal, though the 30-year-old is expected to make his Stags debut against Grimsby Town on Saturday.
Despite being named player of the year last season, Wainwright has been a fringe player for much of the current campaign and earlier this season he spent a month on loan at Shrewsbury Town.

Wainy To Mansfield?
By Scott Thornberry - 20/03/2008
Last season Player Of The Year Neil Wainwright could be on the verge of joining another league Two club on loan.

A deal is on the verge of being agreed to allow Wainwright to join Mansfield Town on loan.

Wainy has struggled to gain a place in the first team squad this season and spent a brief spell on loan at Shrewsbury Town earlier on in the season.

CHAD AUDIO: Ex-Northern Ireland international Horlock to join Stags
. . . and Darlington wingman Wainwright to come in, too

To listen to Paul Holland's reaction on the new signings in an interview with Mansfield Town's Mark Stevenson, HERE ---> http://www.chad.co.uk/stags/ExNorthern-Ireland-international-Horlock-to.3898961.jp

FORMER Manchester City and Northern Ireland midfielder Kevin Horlock has been snapped up on loan by the Stags.
The vastly experienced 35-year-old was one of two players targetted by caretaker manager Paul Holland this week, as he looked to strengthen the squad for the relegation battle.

Horlock, who has made 482 League and Cup appearances in a long career, has joined Mansfield Town from Scunthorpe, where he went to in January after being released by Doncaster.

However, he is best known for more than six years at Manchester City, during which time he was called up to the Northern Ireland squad and has earned 32 caps.

Horlock is set to join the Stags on Friday morning, together with Darlington wingman NeilWainwright, who was revealed as one of the new players earlier on Thursday afternoon.

Wainwright (30) was the Quakers' player of the year last season and has played more than 250 League games in his career, but has been a fringe player for much of the current Darlington campaign and earlier this season he spent a month on loan at Shrewsbury Town.

Manager Paul Holland told mansfieldtown.net: "Neil is a player who I've long admired. He's very pacy and can play in numerous positions.

"Kevin gives us valuable experience and has played at the top level. He wants to play football. "

He added: "Both players will go into the squad for Saturday's game."
