Brighton & Hove Albion under-21 defender Tom Dallison has joined Conference side Dartford on an initial one-month loan deal.
The centre-back, who joined Albion from Arsenal in October 2013, will go straight into the squad for Dartford’s relegation six-pointer against Telford tomorrow afternoon.
Academy manager John Morling said, “It is a good level; a step up from what he is playing at currently and he has been doing really well for the under-21s lately.
“It is a good opportunity for him and I believe it is a good move for Tom, Dartford and Albion.
“His spell away from the club then opens up a gap in the under-21s so it provides an under-18 player the chance to step up, then and under-16 player a chance to move to the 18s and so forth, so it has a positive knock-on effect.”
Dallison joins the Darts lying 22nd in the Conference table, seven points from safety.
