Nick Townsend joins Lincoln City

Posted: Thu 13 Feb 2014

Teenage Blues goalkeeper Nick Townsend has joined Skrill Premier League side Lincoln City on a one-month youth loan.

He is the second Blues player to join the Imps, after midfielder Charlee Adams made the switch to Sincil Bank at the end of last month.

Lincoln’s first-team keeper Paul Farman picked-up a knee injury last weekend during their 4-3 win against Hyde FC, hence their need to bring in a replacement stopper.

Nineteen-year-old Townsend has been on the substitutes' bench for Blues several times, but has yet to make his senior bow.

A product of Blues’ Academy, he signed for Blues at the age of 12. This will be his second spell out on loan, following a month at Oxford City last season, where he made five appearances.

The Imps are currently in 16th place in the table, some 11 points off a play-off spot.

Townsend could make his debut for Lincoln this coming Saturday when they host Kidderminster Harriers at Sincil Bank.
