WINGER Adam Page doesn't know whether he will be available to play for Redditch United against Hereford on New Year's Day.

The 20-year-old is set to join the Worcestershire club on loan from Cheltenham Town in order to get some more game time.

Hereford host Redditch in the Evo-Stik South Premier at Edgar Street on Monday, while Cheltenham are away at Stevenage in a League Two clash.

"I think the plan is to go to Redditch but Cheltenham are still short of players, so we'll just have to wait and see," said Page, who doubts he will be in Town's squad for today's game against Newport County.

"It's up to Cheltenham, but I'm happy to go wherever because I need games, so we'll see if anything can be done before Monday.

"However, I'm not sure if you have to wait until January 1 to do it or if it can be done in time for me to play.

"It will be a bit strange if I do play because I've never played away there before."

If the loan goes through, Page will once again link up with Tim Harris.

Page was with Harris at Gloucester City earlier this season before joining Hereford for a second loan spell.

However, Harris left Gloucester at the end of November before being named as Redditch's new manager.

"I think he likes me and said that Redditch needed a winger," added Page.

"It's worked out ideal really.

"It was a bit of a frustrating time at Gloucester because I wanted to play a few more games – I think I was only involved in two out of the seven games.

"But I've been promised games there so hopefully I can kick on."

Page was also frustrated that he didn't get as many games as he would have hoped for at Hereford.

"I did enjoy it there and was hoping to play a bit more, but I still a learnt a lot from Beads, Jenks and the team," said Page.

"I came at a time when the team was doing really well, so it was fair enough that I couldn't get a place in the team.

"But because I missed 18 months of football I need to catch up, especially at my age."

Page said that he would jump at the chance to join Hereford again if given the opportunity, but doesn't think it will be this season.

"I think you can only do three loans in a season, so if I go to Redditch, it will probably be until the end of the season," said Page.

"There are a similar bunch of lads at Hereford from when I was last there – they have a winning mentality that comes from Beads.

"There's still a long way to go and they have a lot of games to catch up with, but they are in a strong position to go up again."
