Loan watch: Dylan Boyle shines for Curzon Ashton in win over Telford

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 midfielder who is shining out on loan is Dylan Boyle. The Northern Ireland Under-21 international started for Curzon Ashton at the weekend in their league match against Telford United. The box-to-box midfielder helped guide his side to a 3-1 lead at half-time, and managed to steer them to three points despite a late scare from United. 

Boyle's performance in the heart of the midfield was recognised by the Vanarama National League, and was placed in this weekend's National League North TOTW - Well done Boyley! 

There was more good news on the defensive front as Will Johnson started once again for Marine AFC after joining the club earlier this month. With the team looking up at the play-offs and promotion, they managed to claim a 3-0 win against FC United of Manchester in a dominate display for the Mariners. It was another clean sheet, which has been a regular feature since Johnson made his debut.


It was another start for Barry Baggley and Chris Conn-Clarke at our sister club in Ireland. Waterford FC wanted to backup their 1-0 win last time around with a victory on home soil but it was Bray Wanderers who spoilt the party at the RSC.

Two goals from Ronan Coughlan put the Blues into a comfortable position, but with Conn-Clarke seeing red for picking up two yellow cards, Danny Searle's side were up against it and were made to share the points in the visitors scoring two goals to see it finish 2-2. Tom Donaghy was in the squad, but wasn't called into action.

Connor Teale - who has recently extended his deal at Alfreton Town until the end of the season - featured once again in their starting XI, against promotion hopefuls, AFC Fylde.

The defender did well throughout the game to prevent high-scoring Fylde, but it was the former Aston Villa and Blackpool forward Nathan Delfouneso, whose goal was the difference on the day as he headed home from close range after a floating cross fromt the right flank. 

Drew Baker was rested after his performance last week in the Leinster Senior Cup quarter-final win over Crumlin Unitedand had to watch Bohemian beat UCD 2-1 on Saint Patrick's Day.

Next up: Alfreton Town (Teale) – Southport (A) on 21 March, Bohemian (Baker) – Sligo Rovers (H) on 1 April, Curzon Ashton (Boyle) – Banbury United (A) on 21 March, Marine (Johnson) – Gainsborough Trinity (A) on 21 March, Waterford FC (Baggley, Conn-Clarke, and Donaghy) – Cork City (H) – 21 March.
