Defender arrives on 30-day loan
Reds have today signed Brighton & Hove Albion under-21 defender Tom Dallison on a 30-day emergency loan.
The former Arsenal centre back, who joined the Seagulls back in 2013, has been a regular in Brighton’s under-21 team this season and had had loan spells in the National Conference with Dartford, for whom he appeared 12 times last season, and Braintree Town, where he had four games at the start of the current campaign.
The 20-year-old is yet to make a competitive first-team appearance for Brighton, although he did feature in their pre-season games against Lewes, Aberdeen, Gillingham and the Reds.
Manager Mark Yates said: “I’ve seen Tom a few times and been impressed. I think he’s got all the attributes to be a good central defender and this is the next step up for him having had a taste of senior football in the National League.
“I’d like to thank Chris Hughton and (Brighton U-21 manager) Simon Rusk for agreeing to let us have him."
Tom has been given squad no.3 and he is available for selection for tomorrow's game against Plymouth Argyle.
