Goalkeeper Sol Brynn has joined Queen of the South on a season-long loan.

The highly-rated 20-year-old has followed in the footsteps of fellow Academy graduate goalkeeper Zach Hemming by heading north of the border in the hope of gaining senior experience.

Brynn has been training with the first team goalkeepers for the past two seasons and has been an unused substitute on four occasions.

The Middlesbrough-born stopper featured in a handful of pre-season games this summer and has clocked up 20 appearances in our Under-23s over the past two seasons, and Boro goalkeeping coach Ian Bennett says the move to the Scottish Championship side is a great opportunity.

"We've been looking at the situation with Chris Pennock for a while now about the younger goalkeepers," said Bennett.

"Like with Zach Hemming at Kilmarnock this is an opportunity for our younger players to enhance their career and hopefully play some first team football and gain experience."

Brynn was unable to move out on loan last season with only two senior goalkeepers at the club, but as well as the arrival of Luke Daniels, Neil Warnock also has Joe Lumley and Dejan Stojanovic at his disposal while Brad James is closing in on a return from injury.

The highly-rated Brynn joined our Academy back in 2009 and is vastly experienced at youth level.

In Queen of the South, Brynn is joining a club where Isaiah Jones spent an enjoyable loan spell last season and gained his first real experience of playing regular senior football.

Everyone at MFC wishes Sol the best of luck for his time with the Doonhamers.
