Albert Jarrett is set to join Aldershot on a month's loan

Comments (0)

LINCOLN City winger Albert Jarrett is poised to join Aldershot Town on a month's loan.

The Sierra Leone international has fallen down the pecking order at Sincil Bank following the excellent form of Gavin McCallum, and the deal should be completed in time for Jarrett to be included in the Shots' squad for their game at Northampton Town tomorrow.

Imps manager Steve Tilson said McCallum's performances were enough to convince him to allow Jarrett to join the Shots.

"Gavin has come in and shown a great attitude. He is fantastic going forward and he’s worked hard and scored some decent goals," said Tilson.

"I probably went more with work-rate than quality. Albert is a wide player who will cross the ball, he's a great technician, but he probably doesn’t give you enough on the defensive side.

"Albert has got a bit downhearted that he’s not in the side so it’s probably a good move for him to go on loan for a month."

Meanwhile, City striker Drewe Broughton has joined AFC Wimbledon on loan until the end of the season.

"Wimbledon are a decent club, they’re top of the Conference," said Tilson. "It's good for Drewe and good for ourselves (as) we recoup a bit of money."

    This has shades of DNG where the flair is not enough to cover the defensive work. Shame to see him go as he is a good player but I suspect he is on a hefty wage and if he is not being used it will free up some cash. I think this is more to do with sorting out the bad eggs in the squad in terms of morale and fair play to Tilson. With Broughton that is a good move all round. AFC are within a shout of going up so will be good joining a club at that stage in their season. For us it is good to save the cash for next season. The most pleasing thing for me is that for once we have been able to get players out the door who have been clogging up the squad without it costing us. I don't mean that they are bad players, just not the players our manager wants and for once he can clear them out.
