Falkirk defender Chris Mitchell has joined Montrose on a five-week loan.

Bairns boss John Hughes told the club's official website Mitchell would gain valuable experience at Links Park with the Third Division outfit.

"Chris has progressed well over the last few months and we see this move as the next part of his development to play first-team football," said Hughes.

Mitchell joined the Premier League club from Livingston on a pre-contract agreement in June, 2006.

Hughes said he rated the defender highly and stressed he was still part of the club's long-term plans.

"It's a decision we have not taken lightly for he is most assuredly in our plans to make the step up to first-team duties in the not too distant future," Hughes added.

Falkirk striker Mark Stewart has joined Stranraer on a similar five-week loan deal.
