Chelsea youngster Eddie Beach has been ruled out of action with an illness.
The 20-year-old goalkeeper is set to miss a chunk of game time in the coming weeks.
Per football.london, the shot stopper’s loan spell at National League side Gateshead has been paused due to his development.
Beach will have to recover from his illness and then report back to Gateshead for first team training.
He signed in the January transfer window in the hopes of getting more playing time.
Beach will now have to bide his time and hope he can see action before the season ends.
