Seven of Fleetwood Town’s young players were on show for their respected loan sides in the last week, with one of them having faced off against Academy staff – here’s how they got on.
The Academy staff and Under-18s players were in attendance to watch Harry Wilson at FC United of Manchester take on some familiar faces in Nathan Pond and Mark Yeates for Bamber Bridge at the weekend. It was a good clash between the two sides, which saw Harry feature for just short of 60 minutes before getting subbed off.
Connor Teale added another appearance to his tally at Marine as he played in front of another crowd in excess of 1300 supporters, but the result didn’t go their way as they lost 2-0 to Warrington Rylands. The defender played the who 90 minutes on the day as was a good learning experience for the youngster.
The Kendal trio were also in action on Saturday as they faced off against Newcastle Town at home. Billy Batch, Akiel Raffie, and Danny Edwards all played the entirety of the game, and each had their positives to take from the fixture. Edwards played as a second striker on the day, whilst Raffie had arguably his best game of his loan spell in the middle of a midfield three. Batch produced another solid performance from full-back, carrying on his good form.
Both Connor Eastham and Harry Clarke had a double-header over the last seven days for AFC Blackpool, with the latter bagging his first goal for the side in their 2-1 win over Cleator Moor away from home, with Eastham picking up a slight knock in the game between the sticks. Clarke featured in their second game in quick succession against Daisy Hill, which ended in a narrow 3-2 defeat, but Eastham had to sit out the game.
Keep up the good work, lads!
