CHERRIES defender Sam Sherring has cut short his loan spell at Accrington Stanley, instead moving to Cambridge United for the rest of the season.

Sherring, who spent last season at Torquay United, made 14 appearances for Stanley, but has not featured since November.

The 21-year-old has now linked up with another League One club in Cambridge, who sit 16th in the division.

Mark Bonner's men hit the headlines over the weekend, dumping Eddie Howe's Premier League Newcastle United out of the FA Cup with victory at St James's Park.

Sherring could make his Cambridge debut away at Lincoln City on Saturday (3pm).

Meanwhile, striker Jake Scrimshaw has been recalled early by Cherries from his season-long loan spell at Scunthorpe United.

The 21-year-old featured regularly for the League Two outfit, scoring four goals in his 19 appearances.

It was the youngster's fifth loan spell away from Cherries, having risen up through the leagues with game-time at Poole Town, Eastleigh, Walsall and Newport County.

Fellow forward Connor Kurran-Browne has extended his loan stay with National League King's Lynn Town until the end of the season.
