Millard on loan

Last updated : 17 December 2004 By Michael Riddle
19 year old goalkeeper Ricky Millard has accepted a loan deal with Nationwide Conference South side Redbridge. The young keeper who has played an important role in Barnet's promotion push this season will be pleased that he has this opportunity to keep up his match practice after being side lined for ex Nottingham Forest keeper Scott Tynan. The loan period expires on January 29th although should Fairclough need Millard back before this date, a recall clause has been entered into the agreement. Paul Fairclough is yet to decide whether Millard can play in Redbridge's FA Trophy tie on January 15th.

Last seasons first choice keeper Shane Gore who made a big impression on fans and manager Paul Fairclough in the play offs is already back in training after after picking up an injury on August 21st. Gore may have a hard task in earning his place as number 1 goalie for the bees, as Scott Tynan has been a very strong part in the matches he has partaken.
