Loan Update

1 May 2018

A look at how our players got on away from the club

Chris Gallagher's loan at Stourbridge came to a happy end as they beat Warrington Town 2-1 on the final day of the Evo-Stick Northern Premier League season. The Glassboys went behind early on, but struck back with two goals in three minutes just before the break. The first came from a Gallagher corner as Leon Broadhurst headed back across goal and into the far corner. Luke Benbow then gave Stourbridge the lead with a cheeky flick. The second-half was a backs-to-the-walls job for Stourbridge as Warrington made all the running, but they held on for the win, which means they end the season in 11th position.

AFC Telford United ended the season with a 1-0 defeat to Boston United, but John McAtee did manage to get himself back onto the pitch. McAtee hasn’t been involved for the Bucks in recent weeks as they moved away from the relegation zone, but he came on as a 72nd minute substitute in the season finale. However, he couldn’t manage to get himself on the scoresheet as Telford end the National League North season in 14th position.

Newtown’s season ended in defeat on Friday night as they were beaten 5-3 by Aberystwyth Town. Both Ryan Sears and Callum Roberts featured in this topsy-turvy encounter. Aber led two-nil, but goals from Ethan Jones, Nick Rushton and Ryan Kershaw turned the tables. However, Aber levelled and then grabbed two goals in the final five minutes to grab the victory. That result means that Newtown end the season in eighth place in the Welsh Premier League.

Finally, Dundee are back in the relegation picture after a 2-1 defeat to Motherwell on Saturday. AJ Letich-Smith had started this one on the bench, but was called upon after just four minutes when Sofien Moussa went down injured. Dundee then took the lead on 23 minutes as Genseric Kusunga scrambled the ball home from two yards following a corner. However, Motherwell got themselves level just five minutes later through Ryan Bowman and Cedric Kipre's glancing 52nd-minute header gave ‘Well the victory. That result means that Dundee are now four points from safety with three games to play.

Shrewsbury Town would like to thank Newtown, Stourbridge and AFC Telford United for supporting our players during their loan spells.
