From Barrow Evening Mail, Wednesday 19 January 2000
Barrow AFC manager Kenny Lowe is looking to extend Mark Hume's loan spell
with the Bluebirds for another month. Hume, who has played up front and in
defence for Barrow since arriving on loan from Nationwide Football
Conference side Doncaster two months ago, has been impressive, but his
loan period, which has already been extended once, from one month to two,
is up tomorrow. "We've already asked to extend his loan into a third month
and we should find out from Doncaster tomorrow," said Lowe this morning.
Assistant manager and former Rover Lee Turnbull, who is dealing with the negotiations, said
he was fairly sure Doncaster would OK the loan extension. "It looks 99 per
cent certain that it will go ahead for another month," he said, but he
added that even if Hume does stay for another month, he'll be back down
the road to Yorkshire after that, unless AFC can broker a permanent move
for the versatile player. You can only have someone on loan for three
months," said Turnbull. "This will be his third month. After that we will
have to see where we are. We are keen to keep him, but we'll have to look
at the financial position at the time and take it from there. Mark is keen
to come here. We'll just have to see what we can sort out."
