Hartlepool have completed the signing of defender Andrew Boyce from Scunthorpe.
The central defender joins Ronnie Moore's men on an initial one-month loan deal and he bolsters the club's defensive options, after Harry Worley picked up an ankle injury.
After completing the signing, Moore told the club website: "He's big, strong and he has a lot of league games under his belt.
"We're just a little bit short in that area at the moment, Harry is going to be about a fortnight so I'm pleased Mark Robins and Scunthorpe have allowed Andrew to come here."
Boyce has struggled for appearances at Glanford Park this season, despite playing 40 times in 2014/15. Six of those came whilst on loan at Grimsby, breaking into the Iron's starting eleven with a goal on his second appearance for the club, at Oldham.
He went on to play 34 times in total for Mark Robins' men in 2014/15 as they avoided relegation from Sky Bet League 1, including a goalkeeping cameo against Bristol City as both of the Iron's stoppers picked up injuries.
Boyce will be available for selection when Hartlepool, unbeaten in Sky Bet League Two this season, travel to Stevenage at the weekend.
