Former York City left-back Alex Whittle has returned on loan to weekend opponents Southport until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old featured just three times since departing Bootham Crescent for League Two newcomers Forest Green Rovers at the turn of the year.

One-time Liverpool youth-team player Whittle made 68 appearances for the Minstermen following his arrival from Southport in May 2016.

He includes earlier spells at AFC Fylde and Dunfermline Athletic – and could make an immediate second ‘debut’ for the visitors on Saturday.
