Dave Frecklington has swooped to bring Lincoln City due Andy Wright and Jenk Acar to the Sir Halley Stewart Playing field.

The teenage duo are both attack-minded players with an eye for goal, and their ability to find the back of the net may be an added bonus for the Tulips as they prepare for their Evo Stik Northern Premier League Division One South campaign.

Midfielder Wright and 18-year-old striker Acar have both arrived from Sincil Bank on three-month loan deals.

Wright is a graduate of the Red Imps’ scholarship programme, and was handed his first professional contract ahead of last season after impressing with 25 goals in the youth ranks.

Acar is also a youth team product who scored the extra-time winner as Lincoln’s under 18 came from behind to defeat Boston United in the FA Youth Cup last term.

“They are two players I’ve kept tabs on for a year or so now,” Frecklington told The Guardian.

“Andy was with me at Lincoln United on a month’s loan, and we extended that.

“He did well there and he’s now a year on in his development.

“Physically, he’s strong and works hard in the gym, he’s reaping thr rewards for that.

“Jenk trained with us as a first-year scholar, and he’s been doing really well in pre-season with the pros in Lincoln’s first team.”

While his two new signings may be still finding their footing in the senior game, Frecklington is confident they will both bring value to his United squad.

“They’re really hungry young players with aspirations of going far in the game,” he added.

“We’re hoping we can play a part in that by having them here and letting them show us how well they can play.

“They’re here on three-month deals, which is important as we can plan from now until November.

“After that, we’ll take it from there.

“The most important thing is that we get the right players in, first and foremost.

“But they both have the ability to score goals and if they can bring that to the team then it’s absolutely a good thing.”
