Loan Report: 4/10/2017

This week’s report covers the games played since (and including those played on) the 27th September. Last week’s loan report can be found here.

Jamie Reid – Torquay United – Vanarama National League

Torquay continued their poor run of form on Saturday, with a cruel last-minute penalty defeat at promotion-hopefuls Dagenham & Redbridge. It was an even contest in which Reid, starting out wide once again, “got loose” down the right a number of times to set up his profligate team mates before having a late volley palmed off the line by the ‘keeper.

It was a completely different story last night though, as Torquay thrashed Maidenhead United 4-0 to record their first win of the season and move to within five points of safety. It’s fair to say Jamie had a fairly productive evening. He “set up” the second goal of the game after his turns and flicks on the edge of the area saw Luke Young literally kick the ball from his feet and planting it in the bottom corner to double the Gulls’ advantage. And he scored his first of the season on the stroke of half time, when good work down the left saw the ball squared across the box for him to tap home. He also created a number of half chances for himself as Torquay cruised to an easy victory. Highlights here.

Stats:

League: 14 appearances, 11 starts, 1011 minutes, 1 goal.

Last game:

3/10/2017, Torquay 4-0 Maidenhead United, played the full 90 minutes, scored 4th goal.

Alex Hartridge – Truro City – Vanarama League South

Truro made history on Saturday as they reached the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup for the first time ever. They came back from a goal down to beat 8th tier AFC Sudbury 4-1 and set up a tie with fellow National League South side Hampton & Richmond on 14th October for a place in the First Round. Wouldn’t that be a nice easy trip to get to? Alex definitely played, however there’s next to no information in the match report and I have been unable to find a team sheet for the game. I will make the assumption he played the entire game, as he was photographed (above) doing some last ditch defending late on.

Stats:

League: 8 appearances, 7 starts, 706 minutes, 1 goal.

FA Cup: 2 appearances, 2 starts, 180 minutes*.

Last game:

30/9/2017, Truro 4-1 AFC Sudbury (FA Cup), played the full 90 minutes.

*Assumption made that he played the full 90 minutes vs AFC Sudbury in 3rd Qualifying Round.

Archie Collins – Weston-super-Mare – Vanarama South

Ben Seymour’s final contribution for the Somerset outfit was to see their 3-0 win against Dartford from the bench, as he has now joined Bideford on a youth loan. His final stats for the Seagulls are recorded below. Weston-super-Mare haven’t played since the last loan report.

Stats:

Seymour:

League: 7 appearances, 3 starts, 266 minutes.

Final game:

2/9/2017, W-s-M 1-4 Havant & Waterlooville, subbed on in the 66th minute.

Collins:

Last game:

23/9/2017, W-s-M 3-0 Dartford, subbed off in the 80th minute, scored the 3rd goal.

Jordan Storey & Kyle Egan – Dorchester Town – Evo-Stick South Premier

Dorchester followed up their first win in six with a midweek trip to Farnborough last Wednesday. They started off brightly, taking a two goal lead after quarter of an hour after former Grecian Jamie Cureton, now 42, had an equaliser chalked off for offside. But despite going into half time 3-0 up, the visitors surrendered the lead late on to leave Hampshire with just a point. Both Egan and Storey played the full 90 minutes.

The Magpies followed up the disappointing result with a Monday night BigFreeBet.com Challenge Cup (no, I did not make that up) defeat at the hands of Salisbury. The hosts fell behind after “pacy winger Daniel Young outstripped Kyle Egan” and his half-cleared cross was steered in by Marvin Brooks. The hosts did eventually equalise through David Jerrard, but the visitors stole the win with five minutes left on the clock.

Stats*:

Storey:

League: 9 appearances, 9 starts, 810 minutes, 1 assist.

FA Cup: 1 appearance, 1 start, 90 minutes.

Challenge Cup: 1 appearance, 1 start, 90 minutes.

Toby Down – Weymouth – Evo-Stick South Premier

Max Smallcombe & Ben Seymour – Bideford – Evo-Stick South West

Max missed out on Bideford’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Haringey Borough on Saturday, taking the opportunity to watch City beat Morecambe at SJP on Saturday. The Robins have also signed Ben Seymour on a three-month youth loan.

Whilst Max missed out on last night’s BigFreeBet.com Challenge Cup tie at home to Taunton Town, Ben Seymour went straight into the starting XI and made an instant impact. He “beautifully” brought down a long ball forward on eight minutes before setting up Craig Veal for the opener. On 28 minutes he dragged a shot wide when through on goal, before getting into the box from the left and beating the ‘keeper at his near post just a minute later. The Peacocks rallied and drew level midway into the second half, but Seymour had the chance to win it in the final minute when he burst into the box, though his shot flew inches over the crossbar. He did go on to score his penalty in the shoot-out, but Taunton progressed through to the next round.

Here are the highlights from last night’s game, courtesy of Taunton Town:

Smallcombe:

League: 5 appearances, 5 starts, 426 minutes.

FA Cup: 3 appearances, 3 starts, 243 minutes, 2 goals, 1 assist.
