Former Reading youth star Olly Pendlebury has joined local National League outfit Aldershot Town.

Playing once for the Royals first team, in FA Cup defeat to Luton Town, he moved to Wycombe Wanderers on a free transfer and scored twice in nine appearances.

20-year-old Pendlebury was with Farnborough until this month, scoring in a 4-1 defeat to Wrexham in the FA Cup.

Now linking up with the Shots on a deal until the end of the campaign, the midfielder was an unused substitute in their 3-0 defeat to Notts County.

Aldershot FC, the original side until their dissolvement in 1992, were regular opponents of the Royals and had a rivalry in the 1970s and 1980s.

Sat 19th in the fifth tier, they are just four points clear of the drop zone.
