Aldershot have completed the loan signing of Brighton striker Jake Robinson.

The 22-year-old has joined the League Two outfit in a deal which is set to run until the end of the season.

Robinson is a product of Brighton's youth academy and holds the record for being the club's youngest-ever goalscorer.

He made his senior debut for the Seagulls at just 16 and was involved in the club's successful promotion campaign in 2004.

He then joined Aldershot on a month-long loan in February 2005 and went on to score four goals in 10 games for the Shots.

The following season he was able to establish himself as a first-team regular at Withdean Stadium and remained an integral part of the side for the next two years.

However, he has fallen out of favour this term and will be hoping to get his career back on track during his second spell at the Recreation Ground.


Meanwhile, Aldershot striker Rob Elvins has signed for Woking on loan until the end of the season.

Elvins was a key figure in the Shots' Blue Square Premier title win last season, scoring 11 goals in that campaign.

However, he has found chances hard to come by this season, starting only seven matches and scoring two goals.

Elvins will go straight into the Cards' squad for the game against Kettering on Saturday.
