Pools boss Dave Challinor said it is important for Kennedy to head out on loan in order to get some games under his belt.

Kennedy, who arrived last summer following his release from Carlisle United, has made 20 appearances for Pools but he hasn’t started a game since October.

The 33-year-old will now spend a month at National League North Spennymoor Town.

Challinor explained: “We’ve had a quick turnaround in terms of numbers recently.

“We’ve gone from being a little threadbare to getting some new lads in so that leaves us with some space and allows us to let JK go out for a month to get some games.”

Kennedy will now go in to contention to make a debut for The Moors this weekend.

They face a trip to Gloucester City in National League North on Saturday.
