Grant Horton has today signed for National League South side Bath City on loan.

The 19-year-old defender has agreed terms on a move to Twerton Park initially until 9 January.

Hereford based Horton links up with a Bath side who are managed by former Robins favourite Jerry Gill.

Last season the Romans reached the National League South play-offs and Cheltenham defender Dan Bowry was a regular pick in their squad having spent much of the season loan there from the Robins.

Horton is currently experiencing his first season as a full professional having been rewarded with a contract at the end of last season having impressed in the under-18s set-up.

His loan transfer sees him join fellow first year professional Tom Chamberlain in gaining loan experience elsewhere with Chamberlain currently on loan at Southern Premier Central outfit Alvechurch.
