Oxford United keeper Max Crocombe has been recalled from his loan spell at Barnet and has joined Southport on a three-month loan.

The 22-year-old played five games at Barnet, but returned yesterday to complete the paperwork in time to play in Southport’s National League game at Kidderminster Harriers today.

“I enjoyed my time at Barnet, but it was always a temporary move as cover for injuries and suspensions,” Crocombe said.

“This will be a longer loan and is all about gaining more experience in competitive matches.”
