ALDERSHOT have signed Fulham goalkeeper Andrew Dawber on a one-month loan.

Dawber, 20, will provide cover for Dan Thomas while Phil Smith recovers from the groin strain suffered in Saturday’s match against Grimsby.

Wigan-born Dawber began his career with Accrington Stanley but, despite impressing on his first-team debut aged just 17, found opportunities limited. He enjoyed loan spells at Marine and Clitheroe and trained with both Liverpool and Manchester United during his time at the Crown Ground.

He signed a one-year contract with Fulham in July and is part of the Under-21 squad at Craven Cottage.

l Aldershot have extended the loan of Preston North End left-back Nick Anderton until October 7.
