Loan Watch: Captain Baggley helps the Blues reach top spot in Ireland

Seven Fleetwood Town players were in action for their respective teams over the course of the weekend, and we've got all the details you need to know on how they performed on the pitch.

Starting off this week again in Ireland, both Maleace Asamoah and Barry Baggley were named in the starting XI for Keith Long's side for their first away match of the 2024 season. After picking up a point against Shelbourne the week before at the RSC, the Blues fans were looking forward to the trip which saw them make the four-hour wrong trip to Drogheda.

Drogheda's Steve Zishim opened the scoring for the hosts in the 13th minute, but two minutes later the Blues levelled the scoring thanks to a lovey finish by Darragh Leahy. They took the lead seven minutes later through Academy graduate Niall O'Keeffe before two second half goals from Leahy and Padraig Amond secure the win. 

Asamoah played 72 minutes in the game, with Baggley playing the full 94 minutes and both helping their side to reach the top spot in the League of Ireland Premier Division after two round of matches played.


Cian Hayes and Finley Armstrong both started for Rochdale in their 2-2 draw away at high-flying Chesterfield, and both claimed 95 minutes on the pitch. Hayes was a constant threat down the right flank, but Armstrong - who has been out due to injuries, came back into the starting XI and got an assist for the equaliser which made it 2-2 at the death. 

Looking North of the border, Connor Teale played 90 minutes for Arbraoth in their Championship match up against Inverness CT. The match finished one-a-piece with Inervness bagging a 90th minute equaliser to steal a point on the road. The young defender made some great interceptions and blocks in the game. Up next for Teale is a trip to Hampden Park for their league match against Queen's Park.

George Morrison and Owen Devonport both featured for King's Lynn Towm at the weekend in the home fixture against Farsley Celtic. Morrison was lively throughout in the heart of the midfield and looked to get the side from Norfolk going in the match, but it was just one of those days for both sides who knew if they played all night, the goal wouldn't have come.

Tom Donaghy's Atherton Collieries' match was postponed later in the afternoon due to the pitch, which means this will be rescheduled for a later date.
