Young winger moves on month-long youth loan to Vanarama National League leaders.
- 20-year-old joins Cheltenham Town on month loan.
- Jennings made professional debut in 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat to Bury in August.
- Forward goes straight into the Robins’ squad for trip to Southport on Saturday.
Wigan Athletic winger Ryan Jennings has joined Vanarama National League side Cheltenham Town on a one-month youth loan.
Jennings, 20, has made one appearance for Latics this season, replacing Sanmi Odelusi in the 2-1 home defeat to Bury in the Capital One Cup in August, and will link up with Gary Johnson’s Robins for their trip to Southport on Saturday.
Speaking about Jennings’ move to Whaddon Road, manager Gary Caldwell said:
“This is a great opportunity for Jenno [Ryan Jennings] to go and play some first-team football at a good level.
“Cheltenham are a team full of confidence at the moment with their recent form and Gary Johnson is an experienced manager who has a proven record with younger players, so we’re grateful for the chance for Ryan to continue his development there.”
Jennings will get a taste of some big games for his new club in his month in Gloucestershire, as Johnson’s side travel to Southport before a derby with second place Forest Green Rovers greets him for a home bow at Whaddon Road. The Stockport-born forward will also be available for the trip to Aldershot and home fixture with Chester FC.
