Jamie Makes Dartford Crossing

DEFENDER Jamie Richards has joined Vanarama Conference Premier League side Dartford on loan.

Jamie, 20, recently returned from a previous six-month loan spell with League of Ireland side Linfield, and has now signed for the Kent side on a youth loan until February 28.

He will be hoping to make a positive impact for Dartford, who sit one point off of the bottom spot in the Conference. He will be hoping to feature in this Saturday’s match, when Dartford host promotion contenders Bristol Rovers.

However, he will be ineligible to feature in Dartford’s FA Trophy replay against Halifax as he was not registered when the tie began.

At Linfield, Jamie was managed by former Pilgrim Warren Feeney, and previously rubbed shoulders with Argyle graduate Stewart Yetton during his time on loan at Weymouth.

He will now link up with another former Pilgrim, Luke Daley.
