Grimsby Town have signed Aldershot Town midfielder Manny Panther on loan.

The 27-year-old, who has failed to feature for the Shots so far this season, will stay with the Blue Square Bet Premier club until January.

Panther will go straight into the squad for the Mariners' FA Cup tie against Port Vale and will be available for the club's FA Trophy fixtures.

He began his career with St Johnstone and has also had spells with York City and Morecambe.

The Glasgow-born player signed for Aldershot in July 2010 after being released by Exeter City.

Earlier this week, Grimsby midfielder Anthony Church joined fellow Blue Square Bet Premier club Alfreton Town.
