CHEL­TENHAM Town de­fender Grant Hor­ton has joined Broms­grove Sport­ing on a work ex­pe­ri­ence loan.

The sec­ond year scholar spent time with Worces­ter City last sea­son and he was in­volved with the first team dur­ing the pre-sea­son sched­ule.

He was also on the bench for Tues­day’s Carabao Cup first round tie at Bris­tol Rovers, which the Robins lost 3-0, along with youth team col­league Tom Cham­ber­lain and academy grad­u­ate Archie Bren­nan.

Hor­ton has been at Chel­tenham since the age of nine, be­ing con­verted from a striker to a light­ning-quick cen­tre-half in that time.

He was ini­tially spot­ted by a scout while play­ing in a cup fi­nal at Here­ford’s Edgar Street.

Hor­ton was on the bench as Broms­grove drew 2-2 at Coalville Town in the South­ern League Pre­mier Di­vi­sion Cen­tral on Satur­day with two last-gasp goals seal­ing a point.

They have started their sea­son with a 1-1 home draw with Big­gleswade Town fol­lowed by a 3-1 vic­tory at Tam­worth, with ex-robins loa­nee Shaq Mcdon­ald among the scor­ers.

Chel­tenham were due to visit Broms­grove for a pre-sea­son friendly at the end of July, but it was post­poned due to a wa­ter­logged pitch.
