Young Watford defender Jorell Johnson has joined Hemel Town on loan until January 4.
Johnson, who signed his first professional contract with the Hornets in May, will provide cover at the back for Hemel following a string of early season injuries.
The centre-back captained the Watford U18 side during his two-year scholarship with the club and has been included the matchday squad on a handful of occasions.
On his Twitter account, Johnson posted: “Pleased to have signed on loan for my hometown club @hemelfc – the little boy inside me was screaming! Can’t wait to get started!”
