In today’s edition of ‘Loan Watch’, we look back at how some of the players are getting on during loan spells at fellow clubs, as well as their upcoming fixtures. 

Finlay Barnes

After recently spending a one-month loan deal with Darlington, the young midfielder recently made the move back to the National League North to join Scarborough Athletic on a loan deal until January.

So far during his loan spell he’s made two appearances off the bench for the club in their 2-1 win over Darlington in the Emirates FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round and then their 2-1 home defeat against Farsley Celtic in the National League North last weekend.

He also made his first start for the club during Tuesday night’s game against Middlesbrough in the North Riding Senior Cup, a game in which he played the full ninety minutes.

After the game was level at 1-1 at full-time, the game went to penalties, with Scarborough eventually running out as 9-8 winners after the shootout. Barnes stepped up and scored the Seasiders’ sixth penalty during the shootout.

This weekend, Barnes and Scarborough will take on Oxford City at home in the Emirates FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round at the Flamingo Land Stadium.

Jonny Haase

The 20-year-old left back came off the bench as an 81st minute substitute in Stockton’s 4-1 victory at Ashington last weekend, where he played a crucial part in helping set-up the third goal during Saturday’s win.

He was also handed his first start for the club on Tuesday evening as Stockton took on Chester Le Street Town in the Durham Challenge Cup, a game in which Stockton won 5-0 and Haase scored his first goal in men’s senior football to round off the win.

Haase and Stockton now line up to take on Grimsby Borough on Saturday afternoon as they return to league action in the Northern Premier League Division One East.

Maison Campbell

The young goalkeeper recently made a short-term loan deal to Northern Premier League side Marske United and made his first two appearances for the club against Matlock Town and FC United of Manchester.

He didn’t play in last weekend’s FA Trophy tie against Matlock Town, but he’ll look to return to the side this coming Saturday when Marske take on Basford United as they return to league action.

Kevin Joshua

The 21-year-old has started two of Macclesfield FC’s most recent games, featuring in the heart of the Silkmen’s defence against Warrington Rylands in the Northern Premier League and Hanley Town in the Isuzu FA Trophy, before missing out in Tuesday’s 4-3 defeat at Radcliffe Borough.

This weekend sees Joshua and Macclesfield FC travel to National League North side Alfreton Town in the Emirates FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round.

Cedric Main

The forward has had an enjoyable start to the season with Blyth Spartans since he re-joined his former club on loan until January.

So far this season, he has scored crucial goals in games against the likes of Boston United, Farsley Celtic and Bradford Park Avenue, as well as providing a handful of assists also within those games.

Most recently, Main’s netted a consolation goal in what was his 50th competitive appearance for the North-East club in their 3-1 defeat at Alfreton Town.

After missing last weekend’s trip to Banbury United, he’ll hope to return to action as the Spartans take on Bishop’s Stortford in the National League North.

Sam Sanders 

The 21-year-old continues to turn out on a regular basis for National League South side Truro City.

Last weekend he featured in the heart of the club’s defence during their 2-2 draw at Worthing FC, where they claimed a point which now sees them sit 13th in the league table.

With only four points between them and the playoff positions, it’s a gap they’ll look to close up in their next fixture when they travel to high-flying Aveley on Saturday 21st October.

Ethan Henderson

The young forward recently made a one-month loan move to Northern Premier League side Atherton Colleries, where in his first two appearances for the club, he featured off the bench on both occasions.

Henderson and Atherton Colleries are next in action on Saturday 21st October when they take on Marske United at home in the Northern Premier League.
