Southend have signed Farnborough keeper Craig Holloway on a two-month loan.

The 20-year-old former Arsenal man will act as cover for Darryl Flahavan, but also sees the move to Roots Hall as a good path back into League football.

"When I signed for Farnborough, the manager Dean Austin said he'd help me find another League club and wouldn't stand in my way," he told BBC Essex.

"Dean knows Steve Tilson (Southend boss) from their playing days. I've got to make the most of my chance now."

Austin told BBC Southern Counties Radio: "This was purely a football decision, and not financial. This represents a good opportunity for Craig.

"At the same time, I have been keen to give Mark Osboen, who has been so loyal and shown great attitude, a run in the team."

Holloway has also been called into the initial 32-man squad for the England National Game XI's match with Holland on 16 February, and the Football Association are looking into his eligibility for the match.

Meanwhile, Dave Rogers has signed non-contract Conference forms for Farnborough as cover for fans' favourite Osborn, 23.

And winger Michael Kightly has returned to Southend after a three-month loan spell at Farnborough.
