With first-choice goalkeepers Kevin Scriven and coach Matt Lovett both out for a least two more weeks, Spencer Day, manager of….
….Skrill South club Farnborough, has turned to Reading youngster Dan Lincoln to plug the gap.
Lincoln, 18, played for Boro in the pre-season friendly at Crawley Down Gatwick and has joined on a short-term youth loan.
An ever-present for sky Bet Championship side Reading`s successful under-18s side of 2012/13 who reached the Premier League Academy final, Lincoln kept six clean sheets out of seven leading up to the final, which they lost to Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Although yet to make his Royals first-team debut, he has spent time out on loan at Oxford United and, earlier this season, Ryman League Premier Division side Metropolitan Police.
Lincoln`s Royals` team-mate Jack Jeffrey has also followed to Cherrywood Road on loan.
Jeffrey joined the Reading Academy in April 2012 after impressing when playing against the scholars in a friendly match.
He is an agile player who has a good eye for goal.
They join earlier recruit Harry Williams, who signed a loan deal from League Two Cheltenham Town just before Christmas.
Williams, 17, has scored over thirty goals from central midfield for the Robins’ reserves over the last two seasons and is reportedly interesting the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal, but needs first-team football.
