Fleet go for Gould in goal

Ebbsfleet United can today announce the loan signing of goalkeeper Josh Gould from Championship club Swansea City subject to international clearance.

Gould, 24, played as a trialist in the Fleet’s win at Corinthian last week and against Southend United on Saturday – and he will stay at the Kuflink Stadium initially until January as per the terms of the loan agreement.

Gould signed for Swansea’s development side in August 2018 after interest from Cardiff City and Liverpool, having impressed from a young age with Bridgwater Town. Born in Taunton, he made an immediate impression at Swansea, elevated quickly to the U23s side.

In 2020, he signed a new two-year deal and earned promotion to the first-team squad, making the bench in the Championship on several occasions.

The 6ft 4in stopper has also gained senior experience on loan at Merthyr Town and Barry Town United in the Welsh Premier League.

He arrives at the Fleet following news last week of Jordan Holmes’ departure abroad.
