It was a disappointing weekend for all three of our loanees.
Jay Foulston’s Emirates FA Cup run with Chippenham Town ended with a comprehensive 3-0 defeat to SkyBet League Two’s Northampton Town.
Foulston took his place in defence against the Cobblers and offered plenty of resistance before Harry Smith’s header broke the deadlock.
Vadaine Oliver doubled the visitors’ lead four minutes later before sealing the victory on the stroke of half time.
Former Exile Chris Zebroski, who scored 20 goals in 77 games for the Club, went closest for the hosts but his effort curled the wrong side of the post.
The Bluebirds will now switch their attention back to league action as they host high-flying Slough Town at Hardenhuish Park on Saturday.
Fellow defender Marvel Ekpiteta also crashed out of the FA Cup, with Ebbsfleet United losing out to a late winner to Notts County.
Josh Payne gave ‘Fleet the perfect start with a long-range strike on seven minutes but goals either side of the break from Kyle Wootton but Notts County in charge.
Gozie Ugwu struck the post before burying a penalty in the 89th minute following a handball from Richard Brindley but in the dying seconds Ben Turner nodded in at the back post to break Ebbsfleet hearts.
Ekpiteta, and Ebbsfleet, are next in action on Saturday when they welcome Hartlepool United to the Kuflink Stadium in the MANarama National League.
Elsewhere, 10-man Barry Town United suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to JD Cymru Premier League leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads.
After surrendering their unbeaten start last weekend, the Dragons were looking to bounce back and jump to the top of the table with victory over the Nomads but it was a bad day at the office for Modou Touray, who was an unused substitute, and co.
Michael Wilde and Jamie Insall were both at the double while Jon Hood was sent off for the hosts in the first half as the North Walian side strolled to victory and moved three points ahead of Barry, who do boast a game in hand.
Barry travel to Cefn Druids on Saturday hoping to avoid a third successive defeat.
