Despite there not being a transfer window in the National League, United did complete some business on transfer deadline day.
Midfielder Connor Lemonheigh-Evans joined on loan until the end of the season from Bristol City. Connor is familiar with TUFC head coach Gary Owers after playing for the Gaffer at his former team Bath City earlier this season.
“I worked with Gary when I was at Bath,” said Lemonheigh-Evans before training this morning.
“It was good. I was there earlier this season and scored a couple of goals but I got injured and had to go back to Bristol to do my rehab. It was a good spell and he is a good manager that gets the best out of you.”
The Yellow Army will be hoping that Lemonheigh-Evans can reproduce the form that saw him score three goals in six appearances for the Romans. His ability to play in a couple of different positions will be of benefit too.
“I’m quite versatile; I can play a few different positions. I can play out wide and through the middle and I work hard. I like to think I can create some chances and score some goals.”
This season has seen Connor fulfill his dream to play for Bristol City.
“I made my debut in the FA Cup against Watford. It was a great day for me and hopefully this loan will help me get many more games for Bristol.”
Connor joins teammate George Dowling on loan at the Club from the Robins. He thinks it will help him settle in to how things are done at United.
“It’s nice to have a lad you already know already down here. I know George well from Bristol and I’ve spoken to him about what it is like down here and he’s said nothing but good things. I’m looking forward to cracking on.”
