Cambridge Duo Join On Loan

2 January 2014

Striker Delano Sam-Yorke and left-winger Mitch Austin have joined the Club on loan from Cambridge United.

Sam-Yorke, who scored twice on his Cambridge debut on the opening day of the season having joined the U's from Basingstoke Town last summer, will be with the Imps until April 5th 2014 although a 24-hour recall clause will be activated on the completion of 28 days.

A strong and quick striker who is also capable of playing on the wing, the 24-year-old began his career with Woking and he has scored goals at every club he has represented, most notably at Basingstoke Town where he was a regular at the top of the Conference South goal scoring charts.

Part of the AFC Wimbledon squad which won promotion to the Football League in 2011, Sam-Yorke's tally of 16 from 36 appearances for Basingstoke last season prompted Cambridge to sign him for the current campaign.

Australian-born Austin, meanwhile, has joined on an initial month-long loan deal.

Austin played his youth football with Sydney outfit Manly United before relocating to the UK with Rotherham United, who had offered him a scholarship. 

A regular in the Millers' reserves, he was later released and spent time in the Swedish lower leagues, before joining Stalybridge Celtic in October 2010. 

The 22-year-old went on to play over 70 times for Celtic before penning a two-year contract with Cambridge last summer.

Both players will go straight into the squad for Saturday's visit of Skrill Premier leaders Luton Town to Gelder Group Sincil Bank Stadium.
