Ronnie Moore has made his second signing of the week after bringing in Wycombe Wanderers midfielder Jason Banton.

The 22-year-old has joined Hartlepool United on loan until January and will come straight into the squad for tomorrow’s trip to Dagenham & Redbridge.

He’s got fantastic ability and can play on the right wing or the left and he’s a player who can excite the crowd

Banton has already played against Pools this season, playing the opening 75 minutes of the Chairboys’ 2-1 win at Adams Park last month.

He has been given the squad number 28 and joins fellow new boy, Luke Hendrie, in the squad at Victoria Road tomorrow.

Hendrie will play at right-back with Banton likely to play on the right, though he can operate on either side of the field.

“He’s got fantastic ability and can play on the right wing or the left and he’s a player who can excite the crowd,” Moore told the club’s website.

Moore’s priority has been bringing in a central defender though he has also been looking for a winger or box-to-box midfielder.

Banton clearly fits the bill on the flanks while Hendrie can play in midfield as well as right-back.
