Cherries: Sheringham returns to Dartford on loan
FIT-again Cherries striker Charlie Sheringham has today rejoined former club Dartford on a month’s loan.
Sheringham signed for Cherries from the-then Conference South outfit in October 2011 before he was struck down by a serious foot injury just two months later.
The 24-year-old was sidelined for 14 months after fracturing a bone in his foot when he netted his maiden goal in the Football League during Cherries’ 1-1 draw at Brentford on Boxing Day 2011.
Sheringham, restricted to just six appearances, including four from the bench, took his first steps on the comeback trail when he was given a 45-minute run-out during Cherries’ Hampshire Senior Cup semi-final win at AFC Totton a fortnight ago.
Dartford, who host Gateshead on Saturday, are currently mid-table in the Conference having won the Conference South play-off final against Welling United in May.
News of a proposed loan move for Sheringham was revealed exclusively by Cherries boss Eddie Howe in Saturday's Daily Echo.
Howe said: "Charlie may need a loan period to get some games for the last part of his rehabilitation. He has been out for a long time and has done well in training. He has looked bright and sharp but has only had one game.
“I think the next stage for him will be to get some regular football but we will have to wait and see. If we get a couple of injuries, we may have to re-assess it but I think it would be a good path for him.”
