Loan watch: Baggley helps Waterford FC's new boss get off to the perfect start at the RSC

Six Fleetwood Town players were in action over the weekend for their respective loan club, all making an impact on the pitch.

It was a Friday night to remember for our sister club, Waterford FC as they scored seven goals in their home match against Finn Harps at the RSC. With a new head coach announced on Wednesday following the sacking of Danny Searle, new boss Keith Long wanted a reaction and for sure got that. Roland Idowu scored a brace, with Giles Phillips, Connor Parsons, Rowan Coughlin and Kilian Cantwell also getting on the scoresheet.

Barry Baggley played 74 minutes before being rested, with the young midfielder playing a part in the second goal of the game, seeing his dangerous cross come off a Finn Harps defener before the ball trickled over the line. Tom Donaghy was named in the matchday squad last Friday.

It has been a loan spell to remember for young Connor Teale - who claimed his 8th clean sheet during his ten game loan spell at Alfreton Town. They won 2-0 at the weekend, with Robson and Rhead scoring second half goals to see off Leamington Spa. The defender made some crucial blocks and tackles throughout the 90 minutes - keep it up Tealey! 

Kyle King joined up with Barnoldswich Town last week and after making an impact off the bench in their last outing, the central midfielder started against Congleton Town. He played the whole match and helped his side to a very important win on home soil. With Friday off, King is in contention to start his second match on Monday as they face Padiham FC in a 3pm kick-off.

It was a frustrating week for Dylan Boyle and the team down at Curzon Ashton as they played out a goalless draw against Bradford Park Avenue. The young Northern Ireland midfielder was up and down the pitch and nearly scored what would have been the winner, but he saw his effort pulled narrowly wide of the goalkeepers post. With a busy Easter Weekend coming up for the Greater Manchester side, it's Scarborough up next! 

Will Johnson started again for Marine this weekend, with Akiel Raffie making an appearance at the start of the second half from the bench. Neither of Town's loanees could do anything to help their side as they fell to a 3-0 home defeat to Nantwich Town. 

Drew Baker's Bohemian's picked up another three points on Friday night in their 1-0 win at Sligo Rovers. Baker was named on the bench, and with the game tight, the manager made a decision to keep the team to help them get over the line. It's a local derby for Bohs this Friday night as they face Shamrock Rovers on home soil.

Next up: Alfreton Town (Teale) – Peterborough Sports (A) on 7 April, Bohemian (Baker) – Shamrock Rovers (H) on 7 April, Curzon Ashton (Boyle) – Scarborough A (A) on 7 April, Marine (Johnson and Raffie) – Marske (H) on 7 April, Waterford FC (Baggley, Conn-Clarke, and Donaghy) – Cobh Ramblers (A) on 7 April, Barnoldswich Town (King) – Padiham FC (H) on 10 April.
