*BS*Chris Kinnear has today added midfielder/striker Greg Rutherford to his squad. The ex-Hartlepool United man is available for selection for tomorrow’s FA Cup clash away at Eastbourne Borough.*BF*

Rutherford was born in North Shields, and started his career in the youth team of Hartlepool United on a two-year scholarship in the summer of 2010.

In April 2012, Rutherford was offered his first professional contract and made his professional debut in a 2–1 defeat to Chesterfield, coming on as a late substitute.

He signed a short-term deal in the summer of 2012 which was later extended in early January 2013.

Rutherford scored his first ever professional goal after only being on the pitch for 90 seconds in a 3-1 away win against Portsmouth and totalled nine appearances for the senior side before being released at the end of last season.

He trialled with league rivals Bristol Rovers in pre-season after re-locating south.
