Young goalkeeper Matt Hall has joined Southern League Division One side Melksham Town on loan until January.
18-year-old Hall, who featured 11 times for the Under-18s side last season, was awarded his first professional deal this summer at the club.
The move will prove vital in getting the young keeper, who joined the Academy at Under-15s level, regular minutes and an opportunity for his development to continue.
As part of the deal, Hall will still be available to feature for Southampton’s B team.
The club wishes Matt well over the next few months and looks forward to monitoring his progress.
