Connor Heath has today joined Nantwich Town on loan for two months. This will enable him to get some much needed game time.
Luke Mariette, midfield and Brad Holmes striker, have joined on loan from Blackpool. Luke’s loan period is 0ne month and Brad’s is for 3 months.
Luke Mariette signed a professional contract at Blackpool in the summer of 2021, after impressing in the youth team.

Brad Holmes signed a professional contract with the Club in the summer of 2021 and is a striker with big potential.
Good at beating the offside trap and creating chances for himself to go on and score, Holmes made his first league start for Blackpool in May 2021 in a victory over Bristol Rovers.
He spent the first part of the 2021/22 season on loan at Northern Premier League side FC United of Manchester, where he impressed, before signing a further loan at National League North side Chorley in December 2021. He then joined AFC Fylde on loan at the start of the 2022/23 season.
We wish Connor good luck at Nantwich and welcome Brad and Luke to Southport.
