Take a look at how our players got on away from the clubIt was a disappointing weekend for Town’s loan players as every side failed to pick up a result.
Shaun Rowley’s Slough Town were beaten 1-0 by Froome Town. The goal came right on the stroke of half-time and Slough then missed a second half penalty. The result means that Slough remain in the play-off places on 80 points.
AFC Telford’s recent poor run continued as they were beaten 2-1 away at Brackley. The home side took the lead when Lee Ndlovu chipped Callum Burton five minutes before half-time. They doubled their lead from the penalty spot just two minutes later. Callum saved the initial penalty, but couldn’t keep out Shane Byrne’s follow-up. Telford scored an equaliser with 20 minutes to go when Joel Dielna’s free-kick was deflected in, but they couldn’t find an equaliser despite late pressure.
Ethan Jones’ Stourbridge were beaten by the same scoreline against Grantham. Grantham took the lead within three minutes, only for Stourbridge to equalise on 15 minutes through a fine Luke Benbow free-kick. Ethan played the majority of the game in the wide left position and had an effort cleared off the line in the first half, but he couldn’t find the back of the net and Grantham made Stourbridge pay just after the break when Luke Shaw got his second of the afternoon. Despite the result Stourbridge remain in in third place in the Evo-Stick Northern Premier Division.
Sadly, Skelmersdale United dropped out of that division on Saturday as they were beaten 6-0 by Buxton. Callum Grogan started the game on the bench, but was brought on as a sub when Skelmersdale went down to 10 men at the start of the second half. It has been a difficult season for all concerned at Skelmersdale, but Grogan has gained a lot of experience during his spell there.
Finally, Kaiman Anderson managed just 10 minutes for Oxford City on Saturday. The young striker came on as a 81st minute substitute and had one late effort cleared off the line as Oxford were beaten 1-0 by Poole Town.
