Chelmsford City have signed midfielder Tom Knowles from Cambridge United on loan.
The 21-year-old joins on an initial one-month loan and is available at the weekend against newly-promoted Tonbridge Angels.
The attack-minded midfielder spent time with Newmarket Town as a youngster before joining Cambridge United’s scholarship programme in 2016.
He signed a professional development contract at the beginning of the 2017/18 season and recently signed a new contract until 2020/21.
During his time with the U’s, he has spent time out on loan with St Neots Town, Cambridge City, St Ives Town and Royston Town, along with Chelmsford’s National League South rivals Dartford and Hemel Hempstead Town, and National League North side Kettering Town.
He has also made appearances for Cambridge United’s first team in the Football League, with his opportunities coming towards the end of last season, scoring his first goal in a home fixture against Morecambe.
