We are delighted to confirm that goalkeeper Ryan Sandford has today joined the club on an initial one-month loan from Sky Bet Championship side Millwall.

The 23-year-old arrives at Crabble after summer signing Stuart Nelson injured his hamstring early in the game at Folkestone Invicta last Saturday and has been ruled out of the start of our National League South campaign, starting at Worthing on Saturday.

He’s a regular in the club’s under-23 side and has made the bench for the first team.

Sandford, who joined The Lions in July 2017 and has been capped at England U16, U17, and U18 levels, has previously had loan spells with Dorking, Welling, and Maidstone United.

Welcome to the club, Ryan!
