MILLWALL winger Rob Harvey is heading back to Brightlingsea Regent.

The former R's youngster, who progressed through the youth ranks at the Taydal Stadium, is returning to his old club on a youth loan arrangement for 28 days.

He has signed in time for tomorrow's Bostik League premier division clash at home to Essex rivals Harlow Town.

And Regent boss Tom Rothery believes the popular wide man can add extra firepower to his play-off chasing side.

He said: “Rob spoke to me last week and made me aware Millwall were looking for him to go out on loan for a month so I was more than happy to help.

“It’s nice that he wanted to come back to us and it’ll be great to see where he’s at now and what progression he's made since signing for Millwall in the summer.

“He’s a great lad and the boys will be pleased to see him back, as will the supporters, I’d imagine.

“Hopefully in the short time he’s back with us he can add even more firepower to our attacking options.

“I’m really pleased we can be another step on the journey that hopefully he’s at the beginning of.”

Harvey signed for Millwall from Regent in the summer after impressing during a trial with the Lions.

He now needs to get some senior minutes under his belt as his first season in professional football comes to an end.
