Loan Watch

18 March 2019

A look at how the Rovers loanees fared over the past weekend.

Alexis Andre-Jr made quite the impact at Yate Town, as the goalkeeper made a vital penalty save in the dying moments to allow Yate to record a 2-1 victory at Cirencester. The three points for Yate allow the Bluebells to move within a point of the league leaders in the Evo-Stik League South Division One South.

 

There was a trio of Rovers players on show for Hungerford on Saturday, as the National League South side picked up a vital three points in their bid to beat the drop. Both Cameron Hargraves and Rhys Kavanagh were included in the starting XI for Hungerford's win at home to Eastbourne Borough. Kavanagh opened the scoring with a first-half header, with Lewis Leigh-Gilchrist coming close to scoring following his introduction from the bench. A late goal secured the points for Hungerford, who travel to face Billericay next Saturday.

Gloucester drew in the National League South 1-1 with Hemel Hempstead, as midfielder Luke Russe again completed ninety minutes.

There were goals glare at for Bognor as they drew 3-3 on the road at Enfield Town. Theo Widdrington scored Bognor's first goal, to bring the game level at 1-1 just 14 minutes into the fixture, as there were four goals in the final sixteen minutes to see the game end level. Next up for Bognor is the visit of Leatherhead next Saturday.

Kyle Bennett featured for Swindon Town in a goalless draw at the County Ground against Port Vale. The winger came close to breaking the deadlock on the hour mark, firing narrowly wide of the target. Bennett was substituted late on, with Swindon set to face Morecambe next Saturday.

Stefan Payne was an unused substitute for Shrewsbury Town as they scored two late goals to defeat Wycombe Wanderers, as Liam Armstrong kept a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory for Tiverton at home to Salisbury.

At Aldershot, both Bernard Mensah and Rollin Menayese featured as the Shots were narrowly defeated at home to Salford in the National League, as a Devonte Redmond goal the only difference between the sides.

U18's Tom Mehew had a weekend to remember, with his second senior goal for Frome Town, scoring a delightfully struck set-piece. Mehew's goal came in the 8th minute and helped Frome to record a 2-0 win over Taunton Town.
