Former Carlisle United striker Sam Fishburn has made a non-league deadline day loan move.

The ex-Blues prospect has joined York City in a temporary move from Fleetwood Town.

Fishburn, 20, will spend the rest of the season with the National League side as part of a youth loan.

The frontman has been on Fleetwood's development books since last summer, following his release by the Blues.

He is yet to push his way into the first-team picture at the League One strugglers and will now aim for some first-team football with Adam Hinshelwood's 19th-placed Minstermen.

Fishburn could make his debut against National League champions Chesterfield today at the LNER Community Stadium.

The forward came through United's youth side and made his first-team debut at 17.

He earned a professional contract and totted up 15 first-team appearances, including three League Two starts under Keith Millen.

Fishburn's time with the Cumbrians also included loan moves to Lancaster City, Blyth Spartans and Morpeth Town, before he was released by Paul Simpson after United's promotion last year.

In a club interview at York, Fishburn said: "I'm buzzing to be here, can't wait to get going and help the lads stay up.

"I've had a couple of loans before and I really enjoyed them - [a chance] to express myself and show what I can do."
