Another packed week for the players out on loan from Fleetwood Town with multiple sides picking up maximum points from the last seven days.
A defender who is enjoying his loan spell at the moment is Connor Teale who has recently extended his deal at Alfreton Town until the end of the season as they look to push for a play-off spot and push up the table from ninth position.
In the game at the weekend against Brackley Town, Teale was named in the starting line-up after being rested for the first time in the game before against Darlington. After a penalty save early on to keep the score goalless, Teale and the Reds stayed stern at the back and kept a clean sheet in their 3-0 win at home.
Another appearance for Dylan Boyle was on the cards at Curzon Ashton on Saturday afternoon, but that was after he was subbed on for Sam Walker in the 24th minute. With the score being 1-0 to the Nash at the time, Boyle played his part in helping the side go 3-1 up to win the game and almost scored with acrobatic effort himself.
It was a start for Barry Baggley and a bench appearance for Chris Conn-Clarke at our sister club in Ireland, Waterford and Baggley almost had an immediate impact in their 1-0 win over Athlone Town, but his corner in the third minute was headed just wide by Giles Phillips.
After a brilliant free-kick by Shane Griffin, which resulted in the only goal of the game, The Blues held out to ensure they took all the points back home to the RSC, with Conn-Clarke playing his part in the result from the 68th minute when he was subbed on for Ronan Coughlan. Tom Donaghy was on the bench for this game.
More good news from the defensive front as Will Johnson started his second game in a row since joining Marine as they looked to continue their play-off push in their home clash against Guiseley. Unfortunately, even though the side took the lead, three second-half goals meant the points would head the other way.
Over in Dublin, Drew Baker found himself on the bench for Bohemian's win over St Patrick's Athletic at Richmond Park on Friday, but was then named in the starting line-up for their Leinster Senior Cup quarter-final win over Crumlin United on Sunday evening, where he helped the side keep a clean sheet and progress.
