Mildenhall Town boss Dean Greygoose has filled the club’s goalkeeping vacancy with the loan signing of Jake Hallett from Norwich City.

Following Sam Roach’s recent departure for Histon, ex-Ipswich Town trainee Jacob Marsden had been featuring between the posts for the Mildenhall.

However, after helping the Hall to record a 2-1 win at Canvey Island on Saturday, Marsden informed Greygoose that he had been handed a trial with League of Ireland Premier Division champions Cork City.

It left Greygoose — a former professional goalkeeper himself — with a potential headache ahead of tonight’s home clash with Maldon & Tiptree, but that has now been eased by Hallett’s arrival.

“We are really pleased for Jacob and hopefully he gets a deal out there,” said Greygoose.

“He told me Saturday night about the trial, but you would never have known with the performance he put in at Canvey — he was great for us.

“We will have to wait and see what happens with him, but we are pleased to have got Jake on board.”

Twenty-year-old Hallett, who was part of Southampton’s academy before switching to the Canaries, has previous Bostik League North Division experience from a stint with Norwich United in 2016.
