Charlton Athletic defender Jo Cummings has joined Guiseley on a one-month loan deal, as confirmed by their official club website.

The 20-year-old spend four weeks in the National League North to gain some more first-team experience.

Cummings was born in Sheffield and started his career at his local side Sheffield United. He rose through the youth ranks at Bramall Lane and was a regular for their youth squads as a youngster. He made his first and only appearance for their senior side an EFL Trophy fixture against Grimsby Town in November 2016.

The 6ft 2inc centre-back then left Sheffield United in May 2017 and joined Charlton. Cummings has since played twice for the Addicks’ first-team but has mainly been used in their Under-23’s side under Jason Euell.

His move to Guiseley is a good opportunity for him to get some minutes under his belt. The sixth tier side are currently 10th in the league and 3 points off the Play-Offs as they look to bounce back from relegation from the National League last season with an immediate promotion.

The Lions are managed by former Grimsby Town boss Marcus Bignot and have some familiar names in their squad such as ex-Barnsley, Rotherham United and Tranmere Rovers striker Kayode Odejayi as well as former Sheffield United centre-back Terry Kennedy, who Jo Cummings will know already from his days with the Blades as a youngster.
