Diamonds snap up midfielder Byrne

Rushden & Diamonds

Rushden & Diamonds have signed midfielder Mark Byrne on loan from Nottingham Forest until January.

The 20-year-old had a loan spell at Blue Square Premier champions Burton Albion towards the end of last season.

Diamonds manager Justin Edinburgh told the club's website: "He's an excellent addition to the squad. He's tenacious and he's full of energy.

"He's not the biggest in stature but he makes up for that with his desire to come and do well."

Byrne is the second arrival to Nene Park on loan from Nottingham Forest, after winger James Reid.

"I think we've certainly seen in the first couple of games the quality James Reid has bought to us and I'm sure Mark Byrne will bring exactly the same," added Edinburgh.
