Folkestone Invicta have signed midfielder Charley Robertson on loan from Maidstone United.
The 18-year-old came through the Stones academy and he made 40 appearances for Jay Saunders' first-team in the Ryman League Premier Division last season.
His arrival at Folkestone comes at a time when Neil Cugley's squad is stretched.
Michael Yianni and Chris Elliott have recently moved to Hythe and Ramsgate respectively, while Paul Booth and Roland Edge are injured. Midfielder Matt Newman, meanwhile, will miss the next couple of games because of work commitments.
Cugley said: "With all these games coming up, we needed to get someone in and Charley can give us the balance I’ve been looking for.
"They think a lot of this lad (at Maidstone) and we’re lucky to have got him - several other clubs have been after him already this season.
"He’ll give us more pace in midfield and has an eye for goal."
Robertson could play as many as nine games during his month with Invicta.
Folkestone start a run of four consecutive home matches on Saturday when they entertain Merstham at the Fullicks Stadium. Walton & Hersham are the visitors on Tuesday night.
