Injury-hit Aldershot Town have a vital addition in defender Alex Finney from National League rivals Maidstone United.
The 22-year-old has joined the Shots on an 18-month deal having spent a year-and-half with the Stones and playing 24 times this season.
Manager Gary Waddock has been battling against an injury crisis in recent weeks which led to him fielding a youth team in their FA Trophy tie at Bedford Town on Tuesday night which they lost 7-0.
Born in Huddersfield, Finney started his career at Leyton Orient before moving to Championship club Bolton Wanderers in 2014 where he made three appearances.
He joined Queen’s Park Rangers in 2016 but failed to make an appearance for the West London club and he was loaned out to Maidstone for the 2017/18 season before joining them permanently this summer.
Finney goes straight into the squad for tomorrow’s game against Wrexham.
