Wealdstone have signed defender Jake Sheppard, 20, on loan from Championship side Reading.
He will be available for selection for Saturday’s Buildbase FA Trophy semi-final first leg tie at Brackley Town. Sheppard is an attacking full-back and known for his abilities playing further up the park.
Alongside representing the Royals academy sides, the young defender has also represented his country, Scotland, at youth level; he was initially part of the Scottish contingent that made the UEFA Under-17s Championship semi-finals in May 2014 and has since gone on to play for the Under-21s. Sheppard spent time out on loan in 2016-17, impressing at Dagenham and Redbridge, where he scored twice in ten appearances in the National League.
