Jake Weaver joins Leamington on loan
Blues goalkeeper Jake Weaver has joined National League North side Leamington on a Season-long Loan.
The 22-year-old has been trialling with the Brakes and played in their 2-1 pre-season win over West Brom Under-23s last weekend.
This will be Weaver’s third stint in non-league’s second tier, after temporary spells last season at Hungerford Town – where he notched up 12 games for the Crusaders – and Kidderminster Harriers.
Ironically, the young shot-stopper is in line to make his Leamington league debut on Saturday at Aggborough Stadium, where he made his solitary Harriers appearance in a 1-0 defeat to Alfreton back in January.
Paul Holleran’s men finished 13th last season and start their 2019/20 campaign with a Midlands derby away to Kidderminster.
Weaver was on the bench for Blues First Team as an unused sub for the opening and final games of the 2018/19 season, but he is yet to make his senior bow.
He has been with Blues since the age of 12 and was handed a new one-year deal this summer.
