Teenage Hatters striker Aaron Jarvis has joined Vanarama National League side Boreham Wood on a youth loan.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Town on transfer deadline day in August from Evo-Stik South Premier club Basingstoke Town, will spend a month with the Hertfordshire side.

Jarvis made his EFL debut as a late substitute in the goalless draw at Morecambe in late September, and has since figured three times in the Checkatrade Trophy, registering his first professional goal in the 4-0 victory over West Ham U21s earlier this month.

Wood are currently occupying seventh, the final play-off place in Non-League’s top division, and matches against fellow promotion chasers Sutton (twice), Dagenham and Dover during his spell at Meadow Park will present the teenager with plenty of opportunity to gain useful experience.

He could make his debut on their trip to Solihull Moors tomorrow.

Also moving into Non-League football for a spell is youth team striker Michael Shamalo, who has joined Evo-Stik South-East Division neighbours Barton Rovers on work experience.

The 18-year-old scored for the Hatters’ development squad in their 4-1 Beds FA Senior Cup win against the Sharpenhoe Road side last month.

All at Kenilworth Road wish the lads well in their time out on loan!
