Darlington have completed the loan signing of Chesterfield midfielder Paul Harsley.

Harsley, who has joined the Quakers until January 2, follows the signing of Leeds youngster Andrew Milne on loan deadline day.

Experienced holding midfielder Harsley began his career with Grimsby before signing for hometown club Scunthorpe in 1997, where he played more than 100 games.

The 31-year-old then had spells with Halifax, Northampton and Macclesfield and Port Vale, where he won the club's player of the year award at the end of the 2007-08 season, before signing for Chesterfield in the summer of 2008.

Harsley has played more than 400 career league and cup games in League One and Two in the last 12 years.
