20-year-old right-back Jak Hickman has joined Hereford FC on an initial month-long loan deal from Coventry City.
Head of Football Tim Harris said: “With Jimmy Oates having returned to Exeter, and Keiran Thomas being suspended for the next two games, we clearly needed to bring in some cover in that position.
“We know Jak pretty well as he came along to training with Kyle Finn when we first looked at Finny. Myself and Marc also saw him play for Coventry U23s against Crystal Palace U23s recently and he did well in that game too.
“As soon as we knew we’d need some cover at right-back we made the move to bring him in and we’re delighted to have him.”
