Aldershot Town have confirmed that 20 year-old striker Aiden O’Brien has joined the club on a youth loan agreement until 22 December.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 International played nine games on loan at Crawley last season, having also made seven appearances for Hayes and Yeading during the 2011-12 campaign and made his debut for the Lions in a League Cup tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers in September 2011.

For the RoI U21’s he has scored five goals in eight appearances, including two in a 5-2 European Under-21 Championship qualifying game against the Faroe Islands earlier in November.

He has been given the squad number 29, and goes straight into the squad to face Braintree tomorrow evening.
