Debayo joins Dover Athletic on loan

11 October 2018

Cheltenham Town defender Joshua Debayo has joined National League Dover Athletic on loan until January.

The 21-year old left-back, who joined Cheltenham Town in the summer after previous spells with Chelsea, Southampton and Leicester City, will link up with Dover ahead of their National League fixture away to Harrogate Town on Saturday.

Joshua began the season as first choice left-back and played in five of the opening six matches but has been made available for loan following the return to fitness of Chris Hussey, who got through an hour of Tuesday night's County Cup win over Mangotsfield United with no problems.

"Joshua needs games and Dover will be a good move for him," said Cheltenham Town manager Michael Duff.

"Dover's manager Andy Hessenthaler is another one I know and I'm sure Joshua will benefit from the experience of playing for him."

Former Gillingham and Leyton Orient boss Hessenthaler recently returned for his second spell in charge of Dover following the departure of long-serving manager Chris Kinnear.

This temporary transfer brings the number of Cheltenham Town players out on loan to five. The others are Matthew Bower (Weston-Super-Mare); Tom Smith (Bath City); Manny Duku (Barnet) and George Lloyd (Hereford).
