Lloyd sent on loan to get games at Hereford
» 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.”
