Harry Lennon joins the U's from Charlton AthleticCAMBRIDGE United have signed Harry Lennon from Charlton Athletic on a six-month loan deal.
The 19-year-old defender is a product of the Addicks academy and made his professional début in Charlton's 1-0 FA Cup fourth round win at Huddersfield Town last term.
Lennon went on to make two more first team appearances for Charlton last season.
Commenting on the latest addition to the U's squad, U's Director of Football, Jez George, said: "Our Chief Scout, Ben Strang, has watched Harry on several occasions for Charlton's U21's and has always been impressed. He has all of the physical attributes that Richard was looking for in adding another defender to the squad. Harry is 6 foot 2 inches, left footed and quick. He is also able to play left side centre back or left back which will give some flexibility to our defensive options.
"We have an excellent relationship with Charlton and therefore, despite interest from other clubs in our league for Harry, we were able to secure a loan deal until January. We would like to thank Charlton for all their help."
Harry will go straight into the U's squad for tonight's friendly at Boreham Wood.
