It was a successful weekend for some of Exeter City's loanees as they produced hat tricks, man of the match performances and goal contributions for their respective clubs.
The story of the weekend came at the Optima Stadium as Sonny Cox fired home a hat trick for Weston-super-Mare as they beat Hendon 6-0 in the Southern League Premier. Three well taken goals for the young striker helped the Seagulls to their biggest win off the season and took his personal tally to four after scoring his first goal for the club in midweek.
Eli Collins bagged an assist as a man of the match performance as Wellington beat Cadbury Heath 3-1 in the Western League - although he's still too young to drink the awarded champagne! The young Grecian teed up Sam Towler for Wellington's first goal of the afternoon.
