Finlay Iron, Joe Neal, Lewis Simper and Tom Dickens have all put pen-to-paper for the Saints and should all be available for today`s game at home to Bedworth United.

 

Iron (pictured) is a 19-year-old goalkeeper who is no stranger to The Premier Plus Stadium, and this will be his third spell on loan with the Saints, having made 15 appearances in 2017/18 and 24 last season.

 

He has recently played 18 games on loan with Southern League Premier Division Central neighbours St Ives Town

 

He made his first team debut for Cambridge in the Uís 4-0 win over Southampton under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy in October 2018.

 

Striker Joe Neal penned a two-and-half-year professional contract in February 2019, committing his future to the Abbey Stadium until 2021.

 

The 18-year old striker has been with the Uís since joining 11 seasons ago and has progressed through the academy age groups across the course of the last decade.

 

He is another who is used to the rigours of the Southern League, having spent a `work experience` spell with Southern Premier Central outfit Royston Town last season and with the Crows league rivals Needham Market earlier this term.

 

Central midfielder Simper, 18, only signed his first professional contract a week ago.

 

He joined the U's academy at the age of 6 having been spotted at his local Ely development centre and has since shone during his progression through every age category of Cambridge's youth system.

 

During his scholarship with the club, he has been a regular goalscorer from midfield for the under-18s.

 

Dickens signed his first pro contract at the same time as Simper.

 

The 18-year old defender also joined the U's having been picked up at Ely development centre, where he moved straight into the club's academy at the age of 7.

 

Raised locally in Soham, Dickens has also developed through every age category and has been an ever-present for the under-18s during his scholarship.

 

Last year, he was named in the LFE 11 which acknowledged his excellent level of work on and off the field, including his academic progress through the scholar's education programme.
