Nick Townsend: Lincoln City sign Birmingham goalkeeper on loan

Nick Townsend

Lincoln have signed Birmingham City goalkeeper Nick Townsend on a one-month youth loan.

The 19-year-old has yet to make his senior debut for the Championship club, but was on the bench for their FA Cup replay against Leeds in January 2013.

He had a loan spell with Oxford City last season and has also been a regular in Birmingham's age group sides.

Townsend will be available for Lincoln's home Conference Premier game against Kidderminster on Saturday.
