Tom Hopper and Steven Smith have both had their loan spells extended.

Hopper will remain with Bury until the end of the season now, and Smith will stay with non league Ilkeston until the end of January.

19 year old Hopper joined Bury back in September and has made 23 appearances for the club, scoring 3 times. In the second half of the season now he’s adjusted to the league, I’d imagine Tom will certainly want to better that record and I’m sure he will.

Midfielder Smith, also 19, joined Ilkeston in November and has been a regular for the side which has won six and drawn one since his arrival.
