Ashford Town of the Ryman League have signed Fleet defender Steven Springett and midfielder Jamie Forshaw on an initial month’s loan.
Former Fleet boss and current Ashford manager Steve Lovell watched the pair in a behind-closed-doors game last week and intends to hand them their debut in midweek against Eastbourne Town. Lovell told his club’s website, “I watched the two lads play last week and I saw what they can bring to us. We have a few problems at the moment, so we had to look at which areas we need to strengthen and believe that these two lads will do a great job for us. They are young and just want to play football so it will be a great opportunity for them to show Liam [Daish] what they can do so when they finish with us they can look to force their way into the first-team picture at Ebbsfleet.”
