Striker agrees loan deal.

Noel Mbo has signed for Hampton and Richmond on a one-month loan deal.

The striker featured on several occasions during pre-season but with first team chances limited has been allowed to go out on loan.

Mbo signed a pro contract at MEMS Priestfield Stadium in the summer having impressed for the youth team last season and will now get the opportunity to get regular minutes under his belt.

He joins Finn O’Mara, Tom Hadler and Bradley Stevenson who have joined Folkestone, Gloucester City and Cray Wanderers respectively in the past 10 days.

Head Coach Ady Pennock said: “This move provides a great opportunity for Noel to go out and gain first team experience at a good level. He impressed during pre-season but I felt he needed more minutes and hopefully this is what he will get.”

Noel could make his debut on Saturday at home against Havant and Waterlooville.
