CHIPPENHAM Town have moved quickly to find cover for injured goalkeeper Ben John with the signing of young stopper David Richards on work experience terms.

The teenage keeper joins the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division Bluebirds on loan from Championship leaders Cardiff City, also known as the Bluebirds.

Regular shot-stopper John injured a hamstring in Tuesday night's defeat at Bashley and Richards should make his Chippenham debut when Nathan Rudge's men host play-off chasers Barwell at Hardenhuish Park this weekend.
