I've agreed to let TJ Jadama go to Whitstable for a short period of time. He's a player with a massive future here at this club and someone with a great desire to succeed. My previous assistant Tom Hickman worked with him last season, as I have this season with the academy and first team, and I feel he has reached a stage where he needs to be playing a senior level of football to aid his development.
I know Scott Porter well and he was impressed with how he played against his Whitstable Town team when we faced them in pre-season.
TJ is one of a fantastic number of young players who will no doubt be first team players and I look forward to TJ embracing this experience and then challenging for a place within our own starting eleven.
