Teenage central defender Graham Hutchison has joined Lincoln City on a youth loan from Birmingham City.
Following a successful trial spell, Hutchison's loan will run until January 2.
He has been granted permission by Birmingham to feature in FA Cup and FA Trophy fixtures as well as the regular Blue Square Bet Premier league games.
A Scottish youth international, Bellshill-born Hutchison returns to the Imps having joined Birmingham from Lincoln in April 2010, whilst still a first-year scholar.
The 19-year-old has been a regular for the the Blues' reserves since he linked up with them and penned his first professional contract in the summer.
He has been handed squad number 19 by Lincoln City manager David Holdsworth.
