Kaine Felix joins on loan

Kaine Felix has joined Stockport County on loan for an initial 2 month period. The former Boston man has arrived from York City until the end of January.

Felix is an attacking midfielder/winger and played 32 times in the national league north last year, scoring 5 times including once against the Hatters.

Felix joined York for the start of the season but has struggled for form (as have the whole of the York team) as they adjust to life in non-league.

Reaction to the move saw many dismayed York supporters who felt that the club shouldn’t have let him go out on loan, many Boston fans have also vouched for Felix and have stated that on his day, he’s unplayable. Although many commented on his consistency throughout the season.

Here’s hoping for a good two months for the winger! Starting tonight against Tamworth!
