Time at club: 2009 to 2014
A talented midfielder signed on a free transfer from manager Micky Adams’ former club Brighton.
He was player of the year for 2012 and made club captain for the 2012-13 season.
He was controversially injured by colleague Dan Jones in April 2014 – for which Jones was sacked.
In the summer of 2014, Loft turned down an offer of a new contract to move to hometown club Gillingham.
