Wagstaff to join sick note
Scott Wagstaff went out on loan today in a sensible move to get the Tunbridge Wells lad some first team experience. He joined relegation threatened Bournemouth (also sponsored by Carbrini Sports incidentally), who sit second-bottom in League Two with -15 points. Wagstaff will have 36-year old Darren Anderton to learn some wing-skills from.
Also this afternoon the club confirmed Dean Sinclair's loan to Cheltenham Town
. The midfielder I would suggest will be keen to make another impression under Keith Downing as I wouldn't be surprised if Sinclair was allowed to move permanently if not before August, then in January.
Cheltenham failed in their attempt to also sign Stuart Fleetwood though, the Addicks I expect waiting on the fitness of Svetoslav Todorov, before allowing the ex-Conference top scorer out to taste league football.
I like looking out for young players that we having knocking around the lower leagues. Aswad Thomas joined Barnet last week, but didn't make their 16 on Saturday and at Hereford Darren Randolph has seen defeat three times in a week as the Bulls find it hard to adjust to a higher level.
Jerome Thomas meanwhile came on with 15 minutes to go for Portsmouth, did a couple of step overs, cut inside a few times before driving off up the Kings Road in his Bentley convertible.
