The young left-back is out on loan for the remainder of the season with Northern Premier League side Lancaster City, after returning to his parent club from an initial loan spell with the Dolly Blues back in December, he took his place on the Preston NE bench against WBA at Deepdale.

Speaking about being selected for scotland U19 side Jack Armer said, “It’s always good to get picked to go away and play against better opposition and people who are more experienced. Quite a lot of players that we play against play first team football regularly so they are obviously a little bit better than you are so you have to learn quickly in order to compete.”
