Development Squad duo Jason Gilchrist and Josh Ginnelly have joined National League clubs Chester and Altrincham respectively on loan.

Striker Gilchrist joins the Blues a one-month emergency loan, subject to paperwork, as he looks to regain full match fitness after sustaining a broken ankle in July.

The former Accrington Stanley loanee reunites with ex-Claret Steven Hewitt at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.

Meanwhile Ginnelly, 18, who signed a three-year deal from Shrewsbury in the summer, links-up with Altrincham on a one-month youth loan.

Ginnelly made his Football League debut aged just 17 for Shrewsbury, where he made three appearances for the League Two club.
