Cheltenham Town make double loan swoop

Ashley Eastham has made just one senior appearance for Blackpool

Cheltenham have tied up the loan signings of Dagenham striker Phil Walsh and Blackpool defender Ashley Eastham, who will both join for a month.

Eastham, 19, played 20 times for the Robins during a loan spell last season.

Walsh, 26, has already been out on loan at Barnet this season, netting three times in nine games.

"We needed some extra firepower in the squad and Phil will give us that," Cheltenham boss Mark Yates told the club website.

"He is a strong, mobile forward who causes problems for defenders.

"He will give us something a little bit different and will complement the squad well.

"Obviously we've known what Ashley Eastham can do for some time and I'm delighted to have him back.

"It looks like we will have Martin Riley out for three to four weeks, so we need defensive cover."

Blackpool youth product Eastham played once during a spell with Carlisle earlier this term, with his only appearance for the Cumbrians coming in an FA Cup win over Tamworth.

Dagenham signed Walsh from Dorchester in January last year after playing for Tiverton Town, Newport County and Bath City.
