Fulham goalkeeper Taye Ashby-Hammond has turned professional after signing a new deal at Craven Cottage – and also agreed to join League Two side Stevenage on a season-long loan.

The 23 year-old, who starred at Boreham Wood last season as the non-league side beat AFC Wimbledon and Bournemouth to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup, has been at Fulham for thirteen years and was on the bench for the League Cup tie against Leeds United last September. He kept sixteen clean sheets in 29 games for the Hertfordshire outfit and has sealed a move into the EFL as a result.

Ashby-Hammond told Stevenage’s official website: “I am really excited to get going. There’s a good group of lads here, and my conversations with the manager have been positive. To get my first step into the Football League is a challenge that I need to face, and I’m ready for it. I learnt and developed a lot as a player last season, and I’m looking forward to continuing that with Stevenage”.
