Hull City youngster joins on loan

29 July 2019

Cheltenham Town can announce the signing of midfielder Max Sheaf who joins the club on a six-month loan.

The 19-year-old moves to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium from Championship side Hull City.

He trained with his new teammates for the first time today at the Energy Check Training Ground and is available to feature in the opening League Two game of the season at Leyton Orient on Saturday.

An energetic midfielder who has made one first team appearance for the Tigers, Sheaf joined his parent club when he was 16 years old after being let go by Arsenal.

Commenting on his loan move to Cheltenham Sheaf said: "I think it's the next step in my career. I am thankful for the opportunity.

"I know it's not going to be me just walking into the team. I've got to work hard for it and I'm full prepared for that. It's definitely a great experience for me and as long as I take my chance it could be massive."

Manager Michael Duff added: "He is a good young player who popped up on our radar two weeks ago.

"He will bring energy, is a good character and wants to learn. We've had him watched and he comes recommended by Grant McCann who I know well."

Sheaf's brother, Ben, featured in League Two last season for Stevenage on loan from Arsenal where he is still under contract. He is set to spend this campaign on loan at Doncaster Rovers and featured for Arsenal's under-21s against the Robins last season.

You can watch a full first interview with Sheaf on the club website.
