Evtimov joins on loan

19 August 2014

Bulgarian shot-stopper arrives on six-month loan from Nottingham Forest.

We are pleased to announce that we have captured the signature of Bulgarian Under 21 international goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov on a six-month loan from Nottingham Forest.

Evtimov is no stranger to manager Paul Cox, having appeared for us in pre-season – keeping goal in our 3-1 home victory over Notts County.

A product of the Forest Academy, Evtimov broke into first team circles at the City Ground in 2012 and has continued to make good progress as a young goalkeeper.

He was named LFE Apprentice of the Year at the 2012/13 Football League Awards in recognition of his tremendous work both on and off the field.

Evtimov, who has gained senior experience from loan spells at Ilkeston, Gainsborough Trinity and Nuneaton, has also received international recognition, having being capped by Bulgaria at Under 19 and Under 21 levels.

The 20-year-old is eligible to stay with us until Saturday 03 January 2015 and has been allocated the number 23 shirt.

Meanwhile, we can also confirm that Cameron Belford, who was with us on non-contract terms, has left the club.
