Shakers grab defender

26 March 2015

Rob Holding joins on loan until end of the season

Manager David Flitcroft has again used the excellent relationship that the club currently has with near neighbours Bolton Wanderers and has brought in defender Rob Holding on loan until the end of the current season.


Rob has come through the academy system at the Macron Stadium and can play in any position across the back four, though his preferred position is at right back.


Tameside born Rob will take squad number 20 whilst with the Shakers and will come in initially as cover for Joe Riley who now serves a three game suspension following his dismissal at the weekend.


A highly thought of player and one that the management at the JD have been tracking for some time, Rob will go straight into the side for Saturdays promotion six pointer with Southend United and will be with Bury until the end of May.
