YOUNG Millwall defender Jake Goodman has joined Conference outfit Aldershot Town on a youth loan until January.
The Shots were interested in signing Goodman last season before he moved to Luton Town, where he made 11 appearances during a two-month spell.
Manager Steve Lomas has previously spoken of his desire for the club's youngsters to go out and experience first-team football, saying: "When I look at young kids who are 20 or 21 and they don't have a league game under their belt, I just don't think we're doing them any favours. They get to a certain level and they've got to stand on their own two feet.
"Maybe we're a bit guilty of over-protecting kids now; there comes a point where they have to sink or swim. Clubs are always crying about there not being enough good, young talent – but we're not getting them out enough. I'm talking about getting them out to a level where they can thrive."
