Archie Procter and David Fisher will gain more first-team experience this season at a competitive level after joining Carshalton Athletic on loan.
Young defender Archie (pictured making his debut versus Charlton Athletic) and David both featured for the first-team in pre-season and they will increase their football education at Carshalton.
Mark Robinson, our Lead Professional Phase Coach and Loans Manager, believes it is exactly what they need at this stage of their careers.
"This will be an excellent loan for the two lads," said Mark. "David has already played in a few pre-season games for Carshalton and impressed. Peter Adeniyi, the Carshalton Manager, also came down to watch Archie play an in-house game and really liked what he saw. I have had lots of conversations with Peter in terms of the future development of Archie and David, and I am confident the lads will flourish there.
"I watched Carshalton play against higher league opposition and they play excellent and exciting football. The two lads will have loads of decisions to make on the ball as Carshalton love to try and dominate. Off the ball, the varying styles of men's football will give them the physical and psychological challenges they need. I would like to thank Peter and Carshalton Football Club for their professionalism in making this happen for two of our excellent young players."
