.AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor has high hopes for defender Laurence Maguire, who has completed a one-month loan move to Mill Farm from League One side Chesterfield
Challinor, who included the player in the squad for this Saturday's National League North clash at Brackley Town, said: “Laurence is a left-sided defender, who is comfortable on the ball, who I sm sure will do well and the move will be good for both parties.
“He is highly thought of at Chesterfield, but they are in a bit of trouble at the moment and it has been hard for him to get into the first team with the experienced Ian Evatt and Tom Anderson ahead of him.”
