Birmingham City’s young goalkeeper Zach Jeacock has agreed to join Gloucester City on a season-long loan deal.
Jeacock made ten appearances for Birmingham’s Under-23 side last season, keeping clean sheets in five of them, and signed his first senior contract with them in May. The 18-year-old was also included in an England training camp and was named in the LFE (League Football Education) team of the season.
Scott Bevan, Blues Under-23s Goalkeeper Coach, commented: “This loan is a great opportunity for Zach and is the next step in his journey to try and become Birmingham City’s number one.
“He has shown great development over the last 18 months with our Under-23 teams and proven that he can handle, plus excel, in Academy football. The chance to now get him out at National North Level and playing competitive men’s football to a team the size of Gloucester City was too good to turn down and we feel it will help further aid his evolution as a goalkeeper.
“We thank Gloucester manager Mike Cook for giving Zach the chance to show what he can do and we wish them both well for the upcoming season.”
