OXFORD United manager Graham Rix today signed young Crystal Palace defender Sam Togwell on a month's loan.

The Beaconsfield-born centre back, who turned 20 last week, goes straight into the squad for tomorrow's game at Macclesfield.

Togwell has made one league appearance for the Eagles, coming off the bench in a 3-1 win at Rotherham two seasons ago, but broke his leg in February 2003.

He has been unable to break into Crystal Palace's first team in the Premiership this season.

Good move for the lad, get some first team football under his belt.

I think Dowie rates him. He is always there or there abouts in the reserves and has made the bench this season.

Good move for him. So he'll be partnering David Woozley at the back?

It is a good move. Many believe he'd be in the first team squad now and certainly would have featured last season if he hadn't of broken his leg.

Togwell, Berry, and Soares are all going to become good quality players for this club.

From what I am told his younger brother is a better prospect than Sam. although I have never seen him play.

Sam has looked like a great prospect the few times I have seen him. Good to see him get some first team experience under his belt ...

That's good news.

He's been playing well lately in the reserves, and I was hoping he go on loan somewhere for first team experience.

I've seen him once, assuming you mean Lee ?

I think Sam is the better of the two. Palace released Lee about a year ago.

Evidently the fruit abuser, ex-Oxford United's Julian Alsop, just signed for Northampton. My Northampton supporting mate Stewart is trying to work out what to say to his kids when Bananas are thrown on the pitch!!. They're only 8 & 10:clown: :bash:

This is the kind of move a few of our youngsters could do with, after all it can only help Palace in the long run.

You have been misinformed, Sam is by far the better prospect.

Have oxford signed sam togwell or just got him on a months loan??

skysports seem to think sam has gone there on a more permanent basis.

no wot you mean connection. When i read that on sky sports i thought he had been singed permanantly, but it does say in that article that he is going to enhance his 1st team experience.

Unfortunately he only came on for the last ten minutes or so on Saturday.

I know they still get a view of what life's like in the lower leagues but unless they are actually going to be playing games from the start I don't see any point loaning players out like this. I remember years ago Salako at Swansea and Shaw at Hull getting great experience from this kind of arrangement and it definitely contributed to them coming back more rounded players, but without starting games......:bash:

Doesn't he currently hold the record for the shortest time of first team experience of any Palace player in History?

No. Gavin Heeroo shades it, although no-one really seems to know how much time Hugh Brophy spent on the pitch in 1967.

I thought togwell only managed 8 seconds in the Rotherham game so what is Heeroo's time?

Speaking of Gavin Heeroo, he has just joined the professional ranks at Grays on a two-year deal from Billericay.

My Oxford supporting colleague says that he has done very well in the side (though they are nearly bottom of League 2).

And my Oxford supporting housemate reckons he's the only positive thing that has happened to the U's this season

The saddest debut of all and one of the shortest was probably that of Andy Barnes who came off the bench on the last day of the season for a game against Q P R over at the Bush(we lost 1-0). Poor lad looked out of his depth and didn't make it to the end of the match as Coppell substituted him.

I saw his distraught face as he went down the tunnel pursued by his mate John Salako. They'd been together in America getting their legs fixed after a cruciate injury.

Andy never did play for the first team again. Where is he now?

There's a thread on this somewhere...
