AFC Telford United sign Bagasan Graham on loan from Cheltenham

Bagasan Graham

AFC Telford United have signed winger Bagasan Graham on an initial 28-day loan deal from Cheltenham Town.

The 20-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at Queens Park Rangers, has only made 11 appearances since moving to League Two side Cheltenham in 2011.

"We need some pace and Bagasan certainly gives us that," said new Telford manager Mark Cooper.

"He's quick, direct and left-footed. It's what we need. A little bit of pace to carry us up the pitch a bit more."

Former Telford defender Neil Howarth, Cheltenham's assistant manager, helped engineer Graham's move to the Bucks Head.

"He comes highly recommended from Neil Howarth," added Cooper. "Neil says he's exciting, has pure pace and likes running at defenders."

Graham is Cooper's second signing since replacing Andy Sinton last week, following the arrival of midfielder Ian Craney.

In the wake of last weekend's 2-1 home defeat by Cambridge, Telford have now gone 17 matches without a win and this Saturday travel to Blue Square Bet Premier leaders Grimsby Town.
