Leamington have secured the services of midfielders Nathan Hicks and James Husband for the remainder of the season.

Loanee Hicks has been released from his contract at Alfreton Town, while Husband has been training with the club since Christmas after taking time away from the game.

Husband has made close to 300 appearances for Brakes, with manager Paul Holleran saying: “I could have played him in any one of four positions last Saturday and it wouldn’t have worried me. I know he’ll put in a shift and he understands the game.”

Meanwhile, Aron Wint has been allowed to leave the club after finding his opportunities limited.

“His preferred position is number ten and he has had Stefan Moore and now Danny (Newton) ahead of him,” said Holleran. “Plus Lee Moore has really come on this season.

“He’s down the pecking order, he’s young and he needs to play ten to 15 games to get his confidence up.

“He’s always welcome back here but he needs this for his development.”
