Giant stopper signed to replace Paul Bastock

CHARLTON Athletic’s giant stopper Conor Gough is the man St Albans City hope will fill the gap left by Paul Bastock’s departure to Boston United.

The 6’ 5” goalkeeper has just been offered a professional deal with the Addicks and has joined City on work experience until the end of the season.

The 17-year-old played for Lewes in their 3-0 defeat to Dartford on Saturday but has switched to Clarence Park to aid the Saints’ battle against relegation.

Charlton academy manager Steve Avory told the Addicks’ website: “He played for Lewes against Dartford on Saturday and we have had some very positive reports back.

“Lewes wanted to keep him, but we had already had an approach from St Albans to take him for the rest of the season, so he’s going there.”

Gough is in line to make his City debut when he is expected to start tonight’s (Tuesday) game with Dorchester at Clarence Park.
