Mark Cooper has again been active in the transfer market today, brokering a couple of deals that see one goalkeeper go out and one goalkeeper come in.
Going out is Trinidad & Tobago stopper Kelvin Jack who was signed by former boss Simon Davey in the summer. Despite being an experienced interntational Jack has found it difficult to force his way into the team due to the fine form of current number one Sam Russell. Jack joins Cooper's former team Kettering on a 93 day emergency loan and ends Kettering's search for an experienced keeper following the departure of player/manager Lee Harper last month.
Joining the club is Dan Lowson who has signed on non-contract terms after his release from the now defunct Ilkeston Town. A former Gretna and Newcastle Blue Star employee, Lowson joined Ilkeston at the beginning of the 2009/10 season and despite conceding within two minutes of his debut, went on to set a new club record after not conceding in over 600 minutes. His fine form for Ilkeston was rewarded with two player of the year awards. A string of heroic performances have made the 22 year old keeper Ilkeston's second hottest asset behind Amari Morgan-Smith who the Quakers reportedly missed out on this week.
The moves will allow Jack to gain first team football, whilst Lowson will not only provide a younger, cheaper alternative, but is also a great prospect for the future.
