Bristol Rovers goalkeeper Lance Cronin rejoins Ebbsfleet

Bristol Rovers goalkeeper Lance Cronin has rejoined Ebbsfleet on a month-long loan deal.

The 26-year-old played 187 games for the Fleet from 2006 to 2010 before leaving to join Gillingham.

He has made just one substitute appearance for Rovers since signing for the League Two club in the summer.

Fleet boss Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent: "It's good for Lance and the club, hopefully he gets a good reception and everything goes well."

Cronin comes in as cover for Preston Edwards, who is to serve a three-match ban after picking up a straight red card in Saturday's win over Bath City.

"I had envisaged a restful day on Sunday and playing golf but no, I had to get something sorted," Daish continued.

"When you get a goalkeeper on loan, they're on loan for a reason, its because they're not playing as much as they should be. We know him and he can step straight in.

"He's excited about coming. It was a tough decision, Joe Welch is on loan at Bromley so we could have called him back but it just fitted well, so it all helps."
