Tamworth: Jonathon Thorpe joins from Cambridge United

Tamworth's Lamb Ground

Tamworth have signed Cambridge United defender Jonathon Thorpe on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at the U's, has found himself behind fellow right-back Kevin Roberts in the pecking order at the Abbey Stadium this campaign.

"We need [Thorpe] to have a run of games at right-back," said Cambridge head coach Richard Money.

"And Tamworth have provided us with this opportunity."

Thorpe becomes Tamworth's third signing in the last week, after Danny Lloyd joined from Colwyn Bay and Stuart Hendrie, brother of Lambs player Lee, completed a move from Redditch United.
