Eight players head out on loan

George Dowling, Jojo Wollacott, Antoine Semenyo and James Morton are among a list of highly-rated youngsters set for further loan experience.

All four have been loaned out until January, when they will return to BS3.

Dowling joins Eastleigh, while Wollacott makes a temporary move to Truro City. Semenyo heads to Newport County and Morton rejoins Bath City.

Tom Richards will join Wollacott at Truro City on a one month deal, while further month-long loans have been agreed for George Nurse (Weston-super-Mare) and Harvey Smith (Hereford).

Freddie Hinds, who recently put pen to paper on a new three-year deal, also joins Wrexham on a year-long loan but City do have the option to recall the young striker in January.

Their arrangements build on the successful policy which saw more than 20 City players gain valuable loan experience last season.

City loan manager Brian Tinnion said: “We had 23 players go out on loan last season and we know how valuable those experiences were.

“This will be hugely beneficial for them to get first-team exposure that will help them and City down the line."

Jonny Smith is already on a season-long loan with Tranmere Rovers.
