Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 9
This week, we heard of an injury scare for Stuart as he had to be taken off at half time during Basingstoke's 3-2 win over Concord Rangers in the Conference South. With the score finely poised at 1-1, Moore was replaced at half time by the 'Stoke's top scorer Chris Flood. Town twice came from behind - and went down to ten men at 2-2 - to eventually see off the Canvey Island side 3-2, with a stoppage time winner from Tom Bird- who had previously scored 'Stoke's deserved equaliser. As for Stuart, his half time withdrawal proved to be simply precautionary as he returned in goal three days later, keeping a clean sheet and helping his side beat Lewis Ward's new loan team Whitehawk FC 1-0, Chris Flood with his 8th of the season. Those 3 points sent Basingstoke top, and they can continue their good start to the season in the FA Cup this weekend against Ebbsfleet Town.
Jon Henly - Welling United (Vanarama Conference Premier) Appearances: 7
Henly started in goal as his Welling side drew 1-1 with Chester thanks largely to another late goal for our loanee's side. This time, a 93rd minute Marsh goal grabbed a deserved point for the Wings. Then, a huge milestone for the club. Wednesday night's fixture against Kidderminster was selected by BT Sport to be televised live on BT Sport 1 - their first ever game in the club's history in front of the TV cameras. Again, Henly started as they went down 2-1 to the Harriers. Welling went 2-0 down but fought back through another goal from Harry Beautyman but the Harriers held on for a scrappy victory. The second goal, harshly, was partially Henly's fault although many would argue he was not to blame. A free-kick into the area was punched clear by Henly, only for the ball to cruelly deflect off one of the many bodies in the Welling box. Harriers' fans think it was Dunkley's goal but most Welling fans reckon it was an own goal by Jamal Fyfield. So difficult to call, even with the various cameras at the ground.
Royston Drenthe - Sheffield Wednesday (SkyBet Championship) Appearances: 4
Not a lot to say regarding Royston this week other than that he was an unused sub as his Wednesday side were pegged back by a well-organised Leeds outfit in front of the Sky cameras. This week's international break also means we won't hear from him again for at least a couple of weeks.
Lewis Ward - Whitehawk FC (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 0
Last season's successful run to the FA Youth Cup semi-final helped Lewis Ward become a young goalkeeper that we all knew - well, at least in Reading anyway! This hardly made him a household name, although it did help him secure his loan move to Whitehawk this afternoon - probably. Either way, his new side sit 10th in the Conference South, depsite having lost their last four and one once in six.
