Holy Set for Cambridge Emergency Loan
Tuesday, 26th Oct 2021 10:01

TWTD understands Blues keeper Tomas Holy is set to join Cambridge United on an emergency loan.

While loan moves outside the transfer window are generally prohibited, there is scope for clubs to sign keepers on loan if they find themselves unable to field a senior number one.

U’s first-choice Dimi Mitov was forced off during the first half of Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Shrewsbury and has been sidelined for seven days having suffered a concussion.

Youngster Kai McKenzie-Lyle was handed his league debut from the bench against the Shrews having previously made only two Papa John’s Trophy starts. Another slightly more experienced keeper Will Mannion was loaned out to Havant & Waterlooville last week.

Assuming the emergency move goes through as planned, Holy will make his debut - and perhaps only appearance - for Cambridge in tonight’s game at Doncaster Rovers.

Holy, 29, is currently the Blues' third-choice keeper behind Christian Walton and Vaclav Hladky. The Czech has made three appearances for Town this season, all in cups.

Fair enough. Good luck. Also means we can get someone on an emergency loan if the need arises.

Good luck big man!

Every bit of good luck ! Do enjoy the experience ; I’m not at all sure you’ve been thoroughly encouraged and received the enhanced coaching at ITFC which would see you further develop your skills as a keeper .
There’s no doubting your character and determination ; use the opportunity well !

Good Luck Tomas. Sometimes when one door closes another one opens , such is life. I wish you all t(e best. You’re a top bloke.

Good luck Holy! I wish more players in the last ten years or so had the enthusiasm and desire to play for us as he has. Yes he made a few mistakes when playing, but a bit of the critisism he got from certain fans was unfair, I think.

likely to be just one game, so no need to go into mourning ! Good luck ,.Done no worse than the keepers we have signed imo.

Why are people wishing him good luck, as if he's leaving? He'll likely be back here after just 1 match. Only there to cover for their number 1 due to concussion.

Unfortunately he experienced the coaching of the Lambert period. Hence his career stalled. Personally I feel much happier with Walton whose all round ability is superior

Win / Win - a game or 2 for Cambridge will keep him match sharp in case we need him or if we don't it puts him in the shop window for January

All the best Tomas. Am i reading this wrong or do Cambridge only have one senior keeper ?

JewellintheTown added 12:58 - Oct 26
With Walton being our current number one but not being one of "ours" and assuming he doesn't stay on past the loan period, its good to get one of our own keepers out in match situations for experience and keeping them on their toes.
Good luck big man. See you back here fighting for number one soon.

Bert added 14:12 - Oct 26
A sensible short arrangement between the two clubs. As far as I am concerned there is not much to choose between our three keepers and I hope that Holy is allowed to compete for the shirt.

DaGremloid added 14:27 - Oct 26
Can't we send Hladky instead and then let them keep him?

Marinersnose added 14:45 - Oct 26
Lovely guy and full of enthusiasm. Unfortunately not a very good keeper and surplus to requirements. Good luck with the loan you deserve game time but unlikely it will be here.

I like Holy but sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with the sheer size of bloke. Walton is looking the best bet but my only criticism of him is he takes to long to release the ball which slows play up.
