Tamworth: Gillingham's Jake Hessenthaler joins in loan deal

Tamworth's Lamb Ground

Blue Square Bet Premier side Tamworth have signed midfielder Jake Hessenthaler on loan from Gillingham.

The 18-year-old is the son of former Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler.

He recently had a very short loan spell at Isthmian League Premier side Lewes, signing on Thursday and starting in their 2-1 defeat by Metropolitan Police on Saturday.

Having joined the Lambs on work experience, he goes straight into the squad for Tuesday's match at Stockport.
