Academy youngsters, Ade Shokunbi and Gabe Osho are both heading out on loan to gain valuable experience of senior football!
U23 captain Osho is going to Aldershot Town on an initial one-month loan until Sunday 4th November, adding to a brief spell he spent last season at Maidenhead United alongside game time with our U23s.
The centre-back has already scored three goals this season in our youth side, skippering the team to the Premier League 2 play-offs last term and making a strong start to this campaign.
Aldershot are in action in the National League on Saturday afternoon, taking on Halifax Town at 3pm.
Central midfielder Shokunbi heads to National League South high-flyers Billericay Town until January, and will be adding to his craft by learning from former Tottenham, Wolves and Fulham midfielder Jamie O'Hara as a team-mate!
Billericay have been making waves with their rapid rise through the non-league divisions, most recently winning the Bostik Premier League last season to join the sixth tier.
The Blues are in FA Cup action this weekend, taking on Whitehawk in the Third Qualifying Round of England's most famous competition.
We would like to wish both players the best of luck during their time away from the Royals.
