Loan Report: December 14th

14 December 2015

A look at how Grecians are getting on away from SJP

FOUR CITY PLAYERS are currently plying their trade away from St James Park as they gain invaluable experience while out on loan.

Wondering how they are all getting on? City fan Exiled Grecian has the latest:

Connor Riley-Lowe
Truro City, National League South (Joined in July, six-month loan)

Truro were in action in the First Round of the FA Trophy this weekend, as they faced Cirencester Town at home. The hosts were 2-0 up at half-time, but a second-half penalty and a ninety-first minute equaliser put the hosts' chances of reaching the Second Round for the first time in the club's history on ice. Steve Tully's men will play the replay on Tuesday evening. Connor once again featured from the start, as he continues to be an integral player for the Cornish outfit.

Stats
League: 18 starts, 2 goals, 1576 minutes.
FA Cup: 3 starts, 252 minutes.
FA Trophy: 2 starts, 180 minutes.

Last game
12th December: Truro 2-2 Cirencester Town, played 90 mins.
 
Alex Byrne
Weston-super-Mare, National League South (Joined in July, six-month loan)

Weston-Super-Mare were set to face Wealdstone for the second time in the space of a week, but poor weather meant the game was postponed following a Friday evening pitch inspection. The game will now be played on Tuesday evening.

Stats
League: 14 appearances, 10 starts, 926 minutes.
FA Cup: 2 starts.
FA Trophy: 1 start.

Last game
5th December: Wealdstone 2-3 W-s-M, played 90 minutes.
 
Jason Pope
Weston-super-Mare, National League South (Joined in July, six-month loan)

The postponement of Saturday's game has given Jason an extra three days to prove his fitness to manager Ryan Northmore, as he looks to play his first senior game in over two months.

Stats
League: 1 start, 65 minutes

Last game
3rd October: Margate 0-2 W-s-M, played 65 minutes before being replaced by Alex Byrne.
 
Matt Jay
Hayes & Yeading United, National League South (Joined in November, one-month loan)

After getting knocked out of the FA Trophy last week at the hands of Eastbourne Borough, it was back to league action for Hayes & Yeading. They faced a Sutton United side that featured a few familiar faces, with Kevin Amankwaah starting and Stuart Fleetwood on the bench. The former City right-back would cause problems for Garry Haylock's men, as he dazzled his marker with quick feet and a neat turn, before planting a inch-perfect cross for the opening goal twelve minutes in. Ten minutes later it was 2-0 to the visitors, but the hosts did pull one back before half-time.

In the second half it was our very own Matt Jay who had the chance to put things level, but his shot was blocked on the line by a combination of the keeper and a defender following a cut-back by Luke Williams. A late goal for Sutton sealed the defeat for the London side.

Stats
League: 3 starts, 2 goals, 270 minutes.
FA Trophy: 1 start, 90 minutes.

Last game
12th December: Hayes & Yeading 1-3 Sutton United, played 90 minutes.
