Striker Dominic Poleon and midfielder Zac Thompson join on a month’s loan

Kevin Blackwell has gone to former club Leeds United and has brought two players in on loan

Striker Dominic Poleon joined the senior Leeds squad during the summer of 2012.

Dominic featured in pre-season, scoring his first senior goal at Tavistock, and was handed a squad number on the eve of the new campaign.

A product of the club's Academy, Dominic scored 12 goals in 27 appearances in the under-18s during the 2012/13 season.

So far Dominic has made six first team appearances, scoring one goal

Midfielder Zac Thompson initially joined the club in January 2011 from Everton to continue his scholarship - and within 12 months he found himself playing against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Zac joined the club as a right-back, but found himself playing in central midfield during the summer of 2011 when Simon Grayson took him on the pre-season tour.

Zac stayed in and around the seniors after making his debut as a substitute against Middlesbrough in August 2011.

He made eight starts and two substitute appearances during the season, and he also picked up his first red card when he was sent off during a 2-0 televised defeat at Reading.

Dominic will take squad number 33 whilst Zac takes squad number 32 during their months loan
