Ashdown Joins Gunners On Loan

Ashdown has joined the Gunners
Ashdown, who has only played five times for the Royals, has been on trial at Arsenal recently.

He has played in their two previous reserve games; the first came in the 4-1 annihilation of North London rivals Tottenham. Then just this last week he played in another victorious side, this time the Gunners overcame Nottingham Forest 3-1.

With goalkeepers Stuart Taylor, Graham Stack and Craig Holloway all out through injury it is certainly a chance for Ashdown to impress, there is a very real chance that we could lose our young starlet at the end of the season.
