LOAN WATCH | Check up on how NCAFC's loanees got on this weekend!

10 February 2020

Take a look at how County's loanees faired this weekend at their respective Clubs...

Marvel Ekpiteta played the entire 120 minutes as Ebbsfleet United lost to Royston Town in the Buildbase FA Trophy.

The defender played his part as the initial 90 minutes ended goalless but extra-time goals from Josh Oyinsan and Matt Bateman ensured ‘Fleet’s Trophy adventure ended at the last-16 stage.

Meanwhile in the Vanarama National League, Corey Whitely came off the bench to rescue a point for Bromley in their 2-2 draw with Solihull Moors.

A Chris Bush own goal and a George Carline effort put Moors in a comfortable position with 13 minutes remaining. 

But Frankie Raymond pulled one back almost instantly before Whitely fired in Luke Coulson’s cross deep in injury time to complete the comeback. 

Earlier in the week, Dom Poleon helped Dover Athletic to a 2-1 victory over Barrow.

The striker replaced Jai Reason shortly after the hour mark with Will de Havilland’s goal separating the sides. 

John Rooney’s late penalty looked to have salvaged a point for league leaders Barrow but Michael Woods fired in at the back post with two minutes left on the clock to seal the win.

Elsewhere, Jay Foulston guided Chippenham Town to a clean sheet as they edged past Hemel Hempstead 1-0 in the Vanarama National League South.

The teenager lined up alongside some familiar names in former Exiles Kieran Parselle, Chris Zebroski, Curtis McDonald and match winner Nathaniel Jarvis.

Foulston was also involved in the 5-2 midweek defeat to Swindon Supermarine in the Wilts Senior Cup. 

Closer to home, phase two of this season’s JD Cymru Premier League got underway with Modou Touray featuring for 10-man Barry Town United, but he couldn’t prevent a 1-0 loss to Connah’s Quay Nomads.

The attacker tested visiting goalkeeper Lewis Brass but couldn’t find a way past him with Michael Wilde’s early goal proving decisive. 

Kayne McLaggon was sent off shortly before the break for Barry, who handed David Cotterill his debut in the second half.

In other action, Dom Jefferies continued his run in the Salisbury team as they went down 3-2 to Met Police in the BetVictor Southern Premier Division South.

Bay Downing put Salisbury ahead from the spot but Jack Mazzone and Oliver Knight turned the game around. A late strike from Owen Howe seemed enough to earn a point until Tom Cursons struck at the death.

It was a second 3-2 defeat of the week following the Wilts Premier Shield semi-final loss at the hands of Swindon Town a few days earlier.

County duo Elis Watts and Ruben Fahiya both featured for Bristol Manor Farm in their goalless draw against Highworth Town in the BetVictor Southern League Division One South. Watts played the majority of the game before being replaced by Fahiya, for his debut, in the final few minutes.

That followed Tuesday’s narrow 1-0 defeat at Sholing with Watts once again in the starting line-up.
