Bristol Evening Post - Mangotsfield chief Milsom delighted with his new Ford
- MANGOTSFIELD United manager Paul Milsom, pictured, has pulled off a significant coup this week with the signing of a player from Coca-Cola Championship club Queen's Park Rangers.
- Bristolian Josh Ford has agreed to join the Cossham Street outfit on loan for a month and, with Mangotsfield without a Premier Division game tomorrow, he will make his debut in the Southern League GX Cup clash at home to Yate Town next Tuesday.
"Josh is a first year pro at QPR, having been at Loftus Road for two years, but because the club now has so many professionals, is unable to even get a game for the reserves," said Milsom.
- "The club management said he needs to play games and, while a couple of Ryman League clubs have asked about him, it was thought it would be better for him to come home to Bristol and play for us
- "Initially he is here for a month but I know that Cardiff City have also been keeping an eye on him and he has played a friendly for them, but nothing has come of that yet."
- Ford, a 6ft 3ins defender, will replace the suspended Scott Hendy against Yate..... Bristol Evening Post
