Evo-Stik League Premier club Whitby Town have strengthened their squad further with the re-signing of defender Kevin Burgess on a month`s loan from Vanarama National League Northy side Darlington FC.

The centre-back started his second spell at Darlington during the summer of 2015 after signing from Whitby.

He started his first spell in 2006 after joining from Middlesbrough, and played in the youth team under current York City manager Martin Gray.

He made one senior appearance in the Football League before being loaned out to Whitby, who signed him on a permanent basis in 2008.

He went on to make 240 appearances for the Seasiders, scoring 12 goals.

He was handed the captaincy when he signed for Quakers, and scored on his home debut against Frickley Athletic.

He went on to forge a strong partnership with Gary Brown in the centre of defence, and at the other end scored 11 goals, his highest ever in a season.

He missed the end of the 2016/17 season because of injury, which prevented him from adding to his twenty-eight appearances in the season.
