Crewe Alexandra pair Dan Udoh and Oliver Finney have both moved to Northern Premier League side Halesowen Town on two-month loan deals.
The 21 & 19-year-olds respectively have both moved to the West Midlands outfit until October 31.
Udoh has stuggled to break into the match day squad so far during 2017/18, with Finney also having to settle for a regular berth as an unused substitute.
Manager Dave Artell hopes the moves will give the lads plenty of first team senior playing time to impress him sufficiently to be involved in the Alex first team when they return.
Finney will still be available to Alex Morris for Crewe U23 games, but due to his age, Udoh will be unable for any Alex fixtures for the duration of his loan.
