Second year scholar Grant Horton has joined Southern Premier South side Yate Town on loan.
The 17-year-old, who has already spent time on loan at Bromsgrove Sporting in the current campaign, links up with the Bluebells ahead of their away fixture at Hayes & Yeading United on Saturday.
Following their promotion from the Southern League South West Division One as play-off winners last season, Yate are currently 19th in their division.
Horton has been heavily involved with the first team squad since the start of pre-season.
The versatile Hereford based defender featured in a number of pre-season friendlies for the first team and has been given a squad number for the 2019/20 campaign.
He gained experience from a lengthy loan spell at Midland Premier League side Worcester City last season.
