POOLE Town have announced the loan signing of midfielder Jack Veale from Exeter City.

Veale has been with the Devon side since he was seven years old, signing professional terms last summer.

Captain of Exeter’s under-23 side, Veale joins the Dorset club on an initial one-month loan.

Given an initial taste of senior football by playing a role in Exeter’s pre-season schedule, Veale then made his senior debut at near neighbours Taunton Town.

The 19-year-old spent the previous six months with Poole’s Southern League rivals, scoring on his debut against Wimborne Town.

After the expiry of that six-month loan deal on January 13, Veale will link up with his new side until February 13.

This means Veale is not available for Poole's Dorset Senior Cup semi-final tie with Portland United tonight.

The Daily Echo also understands that Dolphins are close to making another loan move, from a National North side.
