Chelmsford City have signed defender Tom Dickens on loan for the season.
The 19-year-old joins the Clarets from Cambridge United.
Dickens has previous experience of non-league from his loan at St Neots Town.
U’s head coach Mark Bonner told the club’s website:
“Tom will benefit hugely from the experience of joining Chelmsford City and from having the opportunity to get some game time under his belt.
“It is no secret how challenging last season was for all young professionals and we are hopeful that a successful and complete season in the non-league will offer Tom a fuller development experience.”
