Jason Banton joins Bishop's Stortford
K's midfielder moves to Hertfordshire until the end of the season.
Kingstonian FC has confirmed the loan transfer of Jason Banton to Bishop's Stortford. Jason joins the Woodside Park club until the end of the season.
"We've agreed a loan deal for Jason and wish him every success in Hertfordshire," said manager Hayden Bird. "Jason is a good player who has played an influential part in our season. Having signed Walter and Alfie, we needed to make a few decisions and that included changing the direction of the team. Bishop's Stortford showed an interest in Jason, he was keen to accept their offer and we didn't want to stand in his way."
The Manager also confirmed that as part of the loan deal, Jason is not allowed to play against Kingstonian.
Hayden also confirmed that Olly Allen has returned to Dorking Wanderers and Jonathon Gjoshe has signed a loan deal with Chipstead.
"Olly has impressed everyone but needs games. We understand that and have decided to allow him to move on to play regularly. He is back training with Dorking Wanderers and playing in their Under 23s while Marc White arranges a loan move. Olly is a really good kid. At seventeen, he has a bright future and we wish him well."
"Jonathon is a right back with great potential. He has been on loan to Molesey and is now making the step-up with Chipstead. Teo is currently at the High Road club and is really benefitting from his loan move. We hope Jonathon makes similar progress."
Hayden also confirmed that Youth Team player Kwesi Ntim will be in the First Team squad tomorrow. "Kwesi is the next one off Nigel's player production line! I've seen him play and have been impressed with him when training with the First Team. There is no doubt that he is ready for his opportunity with us!"
In other team news, the Manager confirmed that Elliott Buchanan has been ruled out following the broken nose that he suffered on Tuesday night. "We all feel for Elliott, who has now broken his nose twice in the space of four weeks. He immediately went to the hospital after the game and has been referred to a specialist, who he will see this weekend. Unfortunately, Declan Skura has also suffered a setback and is ruled out for the next six to eight weeks."
Kingstonian are away to Horsham tomorrow afternoon for a 3pm kick-off.
