Young keeper joins conference side

Young keeper joins conference side

Young Royals goalkeeper Simon Locke has joined Conference National side Forest Green Rovers on an emergency loan deal, which is due to expire on 28th December.

The 20-year old Reading academy product is yet to make a senior appearance for any team, despite loan spells at Dagenham & Redbridge and Gillingham.

Rovers were in the market for a new keeper as Watford recalled their keeper Jonathan Bond prematurely, meaning they only had one fit goalkeeper.

Locke signed a scholarship in the summer of 2008 and had already been involved in our under 18s as early as September 2007. He appeared in goal in our recent 2-0 loss to Wycombe.
