Trio seal loan moves and could earn minutes this weekend!

Legg, Liddle and Rollinson set for taste of competitive action in National League and National League South!

16 November 2018

The Royals aren't in action this weekend, but three of our young Academy stars have signed loan moves to non-league clubs and could get some competitive minutes under their belts tomorrow!

22-year-old goalkeeper George Legg has put pen to paper on a one month loan move to Braintree Town - and he could come straight into the side to feature in a game which is being broadcast live tomorrow afternoon.

Last season's National League South play-off winners will be hosting Solihull Moors at Cressing Road tomorrow and you can watch Legg in action on BT Sport, kick-off 12.30pm.


Points to play for this weekend for loanees…

16 November 2018

The Essex-based side go into the game just one spot off the foot of the table and Legg may well be called upon as sixth-placed Solihull come to town this weekend.

The young goalkeeper has been part of the first team squad for home games against Millwall and Bristol City this season and he has travelled with the first team on a number of occasions to away games in 2018-19 too. This will give Legg an opportunity to get some minutes under his belt and continue to progress as a burgeoning young stopper.

Striker Adam Liddle, 19, and midfielder Joel Rollinson, 20, have also signed youth loan moves this afternoon to join Eastbourne Borough until Sunday 16th December.

Borough are in 14th place in the National League South and travel to Bath City tomorrow where both young Royals could play a part.

We would like to wish all three the best of luck during their stints in Essex and East Sussex.
