LOAN CAP­TURES BOOST DAR­RELL

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BRIS­TOL ROVERS boss Dar­rell Clarke be­lieves his squad can cope with any­thing af­ter bring­ing in a trio of Premier League tal­ents on loan.

The Gas ac­quired high­lyrated 19-year-old mid­fielder Char­lie Colkett and de­fender Jake Clarke-Sal­ter, 18, from Chelsea on sea­son­long loans on Wed­nes­day, fol­low­ing the ar­rival of 20year-old mid­fielder Hi­ram Boateng from Crys­tal Palace un­til Jan­uary.

“I am very pleased with the busi­ness we have man­aged to get done ahead of the dead­line and across the sum­mer in gen­eral,” Clarke said.

“We have a big squad now and it was im­per­a­tive that we boosted the num­ber of bod­ies we have to cater for the pos­si­bil­ity of an in­jury cri­sis at any time be­tween now and Jan­uary.

“I’m con­fi­dent that I now have the op­tions re­quired that will re­ally see us kick on.”
