Both Curtis Good and Brad Inman are going out on loan immediately, with Curtis joining Bradford City in League Two, and Brad going out on loan to Crewe Alexandra, who play in League One.
Curtis Good – sent out on loan to Bradford City
Curtis Good joins the League Two club until January, and he has been a standout in the Reserves U21 side this season, since joining the club from Melbourne Heart in a six year deal, in the summer for around £400K.
It turns out that Gateshead manager Ian Bogie had tried to get Good on loan in the Conference, but Good gets to play in a higher class of football in the Football League, and Bradford City are fighting for promotion from League Two, and are currently in 5th place in the league table.
And one of our other top youngsters, another Australian – Brad Inman – has been sent on loan to Crewe Alexandra, and Brad will be on loan through January 2nd.
Brad Inman – on loan to league One club Crewe Alexandra
This is what Inman told the local press today:
“It showed when they went out on loan they came back as better players.” “You come back and learn a lot.” “It is more important than playing in the reserves.” “You are playing to win.”
“You are playing for points and for promotion.” “I can learn from it.”
Crewe Alexandra are currently in 14th position in League One.
It’s good that our youngsters are sent out on loan to get experience of first team football, and we’ll be keeping an eye on how these two lads perform through January 2nd.
