THE Mariners have taken Hull City midfielder Dougie Wilson on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The Town management have acted quickly to bring in reinforcements after Derek Niven was ruled out for a number of weeks with an adductor tendon injury.

Dougie's talents were spotted by City's youth scouts when he was playing as a youngster in Northern Ireland and he was soon brought over to England to join the Tigers' youth set-up.

A central midfielder, Dougie made a big impression for City's youth team and captained the side on a number of occasions as they won the Youth Alliance North East Conference title in 2012.

His performances earned the Northern Ireland U17 & U19 international a step-up to the club's Development Squad for 2012/13 and having impressed at reserve team level, he made his first team debut as a second half substitute in an FA Cup tie against Leyton Orient in January 2013.

The 19-year-old is not expected to be involved in tomorrow's side to face Kidderminster Harriers.
