Gloucester City have announced the loan signing of striker Louis Robles from League One side Wigan Athletic.

Robles, 19, joins the Tigers on loan for the rest of the season from the Latics.

The move comes as Bobbie Dale is ruled out for the rest of the season and manager Tim Harris says the signing is important for the Tigers.

Harris said: “With Joe Parker out and Luke Hopper only just returning to full fitness, it’s important that we are not left short with our striking options.

“Louis has scored an impressive 13 goals in fourteen appearances for the Wigan Development side this side against some decent opposition.

“Last season he scored 29 goals in thirty-five games for their youth team and we are hoping he can continue that form with us when he joins.”

Robles has been registered in time for the Tigers away fixture with Alfreton Town on Saturday
