Nuneaton are currently next to bottom of the Conference table

Nuneaton Town have signed Barnsley forward George Maris on a one-month youth loan.

Boro boss Liam Daish has also brought in 21-year-old Notts County midfielder Elliott Whitehouse on a month's loan.

Maris, 18, is the second Barnsley player to move to Liberty Way, goalkeeper Christian Dibble having joined on loan earlier this month.

Maris scored both goals as the Reds beat Sheffield Wednesday in a reserve team fixture earlier this week.

Both could make their Nuneaton debut in Saturday's Conference game at Forest Green Rovers.

Maris signed his first professional contract with Barnsley at the end of last season, having scored 20 goals for their under-18 side, but has yet to appear for the first team.
