McGrath heads to York for loan spell
BURTON Albion club captain John McGrath has joined York City for a month on loan.
The 32-year-old midfielder, one of only three players from the Brewers' Conference promotion side still at the club, has been unable to force his way back into the starting line-up since a foot injury kept him sidelined for five months.
But Brewers boss Gary Rowett says McGrath is still very much part of his plans as the team chase promotion from League Two.
"I've done this reluctantly, in a way, because characters like Macca are the sort of people I want around the club," said Rowett.

"I had hoped that I would be able to find him a place back in the side before now but, since he had that bad injury, the form of Lee Bell and Robbie Weir in the middle has been too good to disrupt.
"I know John is desperate to play and, with him going to York, he will now have a month of League Two football.
"I hope that means that we will get an even more match-fit Macca coming back to us later in the season."
