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

27 January 2020

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

County's Marvel Ekpiteta added another clean sheet to his name as he helped Ebbsfleet United battle to a goalless draw against Torquay United in the National League.

Striker Jamie Reid had notched 17 league goals for Torquay before Fleet’s trip to Plainmoor but Ekpiteta managed to keep him off the scoresheet to help earn his side a point. 

Elsewhere in the league, Forward Corey Whitely marked his first start with Bromley with a brilliant assist, but it proved to be a mere consolation in a 2-1 defeat to Barnet. 

The attacker picked out Josh Rees with a pinpoint cross to level the score after Josh Walker had fired Barnet ahead. However, Simeon Akinola’s second-half effort proved decisive for the Bees.

Bromley remain in the play-off places despite the defeat. 

Meanwhile, Jay Foulston made his 35th appearance of the season for Chippenham Town as they were held to a 0-0 draw with Havant & Waterlooville in the National League South. 

The teenager did his job in keeping out the promotion-chasing Hawks and almost found the net himself but shot narrowly wide. 

It was a memorable day for NCAFC youngster Dom Jefferies as he marked his Salisbury debut with a goal as they eased to a 5-0 triumph over Dorchester Town in the Southern Premier South. 

The 17-year-old joined on a work experience loan last week after making six first-team County appearances this season and capped off a fine afternoon with a goal. Toby Holmes, Ollie Knowles, Warren Bentley and Dan Fitchett completed the scoring for Steve Claridge’s side.

There were more debutants over the weekend as Tom Wright featured for Clevedon Town as they were beaten 4-1 by Bradford Town in the Toolstation Western League Premier.

A frustrating afternoon was compounded when he was sent to the sin-bin in the latter stages, a new experience for him and all County fans. 

Elsewhere, Callum Jones played 79 minutes of Slimbridge’s 4-0 victory over Barnstaple Town in the BetVictor Southern Division One South while Elis Watts played the final 12 minutes as Manor Farm were narrowly beaten 1-0 by AFC Totton.
