Grimsby complete double signing

Grimsby Town have completed the double loan signings of midfielders Dean Sinclair from Charlton and Doncaster's Stuart Elliot.

Both players have agreed initial one-month deals at Blundell Park.

Sinclair, 24, has not played for the Addicks this season but made three appearances during a loan spell at League One side Cheltenham.

Elliot, 30, has also struggled to hold down a place at Doncaster, starting only three games this season.

The Northern Ireland international told BBC Look North: "I want to play good football again so I'm delighted to come over and help the gaffer out."

His last appearance came as a substitute in the 1-0 home defeat by Wolves last month.

"I'm still hopeful for my career at Doncaster. I'm going back there next month for sure but thought I'd come out and get a few games under my belt," he added.

Elliot joined Rovers permanently from Hull City in the summer after ending last season on loan at the Keepmoat Stadium.
