Here is the latest round-up of how our players are doing out on loan at their respective clubs. 

Finlay Barnes

After recently coming off the bench to score in Scarborough Athletic’s 2-0 win against Kings Lynn, the young midfielder was awarded a start in their next game against Bishop’s Stortford. 

It’s a game in which Barnes netted the third goal of the afternoon, as helped the Seadogs to a 5-0 win in the National League North. Barnes was awarded Man of the Match after an impressive performance, and he even earned himself a place in the National League North Team of the Week.  

Once again Barnes started in their following game at Hereford, but Scarborough were on the wrong end of a 3-1 defeat as Jonathan Greening’s side missed out on a crucial three points in the sixth tier.  

This coming Saturday Barnes will hope to feature once again for the National League North side as they make the trip across the Pennines to take on Warrington Town.  

Cedric Main

Another Minstermen player who continues to impress in the National League North is Cedric Main at Blyth Spartans.  

After returning from injury in recent weeks, Main has gone on to score in back-to-back league games for the Spartans, firstly netting in their 3-2 defeat at home to Peterborough Sports, before also netting one of the goals in a 3-1 win at Rushall Olympic at the weekend.  

Saturday sees Main and Blyth face a trip to Victory Park to take on Chorley in the 3rd Round of the Isuzu FA Trophy in their next competitive fixture.  

Jonny Haase

Haase has helped play a part in helping Stockton Town reach the top of the Northern Premier League Division One East table.  

He recently came off the bench in their 3-1 win against Brighouse Town, their last competitive game which came at the end of November.  

This weekend, Haase will hope to feature once again for Stockton on Saturday as they face a trip to the South Kesteven Sports Stadium to take on Grantham Town.  

Mitch Hancox

After previously being an unused substitute for Hartlepool in their 1-1 draw at Kidderminster Harriers a few weeks ago, the midfielder returned to action in Hartlepool’s most recent game, a 4-1 defeat at home to Bromley as he came on as an 83rd minute substitute.  

This weekend, Hancox and Hartlepool United travel to City of Liverpool FC in the 3rd Round of the Isuzu FA Trophy.  

Sam Sanders

The defender once again featured in the heart of the Truro City defence on Tuesday evening as he was part of their side who suffered a 2-1 at the Gallagher Stadium against Maidstone United.  

Most recently, Sanders netted his first goal in Truro colours as he scored the opener in a 2-1 win at Chelmsford City. 

This Saturday, Sanders and Truro host Dover Athletic in the National League South.  

George Harrison

The young winger has missed the last couple of games for Northern Premier League Division One East side Bridlington Town through injury.
