The pair are going to Shawbridge on work experience deals which will allow them to still play for PNE's youth team if required.

Attacking midfielder Dolan and Chorley-born defender McFayden both featured in the Under-18s recent run to the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup where they were beaten by Blackburn Rovers.

Dolan, formerly on the books of Manchester City and Burnley, also played in PNE's Lancashire FA Senior Cup clash with Rovers last month.
