Young Weston-super-Mare goalkeeper Liam Kingston has headed out on a three-month loan to Western League Premier Division side Shepton Mallet in order to get regular game time at first-team level.
Shepton Mallet are jointly-managed by former Seagulls midfielder Craig Loxton and Jon Burr, who are both still signed on as players with the Western League side. Shepton Mallet also have former Seagulls U18 defender Harry Ratcliffe in their ranks, and last season had current Weston youngsters George Morris-Edwards and Jack Goodall playing for the outfit.
On his loan move, Kingston commented:
“I’m looking forward to getting minutes at a good level of senior football, widening my footballing knowledge and impressing the people around me. Long-term, I am looking to earn my way back into the first team and hopefully get some game time for the Seagulls.”
