Lloyd sent on loan to get games at Here­ford

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORTING INDEX -

» YOUNG striker Ge­orge Lloyd has joined Here­ford on a youth loan un­til Jan­uary.

The 19-year old academy prod­uct has scored twice in six starts for the first team, and trained on Tues­day with his new team mates.

Here­ford play in Na­tional League North and have re­cently had a change of man­age­ment with for­mer Chel­tenham Town and Glouces­ter City play­ers Tim Har­ris and Marc Richards go­ing in as Di­rec­tor of Foot­ball and Man­ager re­spec­tively.

“This is a good move for Ge­orge to get some games at a good level,” said Chel­tenham Town man­ager Michael Duff.

“He is a player who def­i­nitely has a fu­ture with us but we have a num­ber of for­ward play­ers so it’s im­por­tant for him to get some game time and ex­pe­ri­ence.

Else­where, Kalvin Kalala has left the club, while fel­low for­ward Manny Duku has been sent out on loan.

Duku has joined Bar­net of the Na­tional League on loan un­til Jan­uary, while Kalala has de­parted by mu­tual con­sent.

Dutch­man Duku was signed from Hayes & Yead­ing United, who last sea­son played in the South­ern League Divi­sion One East, and has made eight first team starts and scored in the 1-1 draw at Mac­cles­field Town dur­ing Au­gust.

He made his de­but for Bar­net in Satur­day’s 2-0 Na­tional League win over Soli­hull Moors.

Paris-born Kalala was spot­ted in a trial match hav­ing spent the last two sea­sons play­ing in Italy.

He started two games in all com­pe­ti­tions and made seven sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ances.

Duff said: “Kalvin is a good young prospect but he needs to be play­ing reg­u­larly and he will now be free to sign for a club be­low Foot­ball League level un­til the trans­fer win­dow opens.

“Manny has made a big step up and has done well but needs to de­velop his game fur­ther.

“Play­ing in the Na­tional League will help him do that and hope­fully the move will ben­e­fit ev­ery­one.

“We will be keep­ing a close eye on him to see how he does.”
