Drenthe cameo as Moore starts in FA Cup win

It's that loan report time again. This time there were cameo appearances for former Real Madrid wide man Royston Drenthe whilst Stuart Moore was in FA Cup action. Elsewhere, Jon Henly started for Welling as they eased their early relegation worries.

Jon Henly - Welling United (Vanarama Conference Prem) Appearances: 5

Henly started in goal again for Welling as the Wings travelled to Cheshire on the back of a creditable point at home to Gateshead last time out. Their opponents, Altrincham, were no match for Welling as Henly's side ran out 4-0 winners, with goals from Harry Beautyman (13), Marsh (34), Jake Gallagher (45) and Chris Bush (86). Henly had to make a smart save at 0-0 though, as he tipped a Sean Williams 25-yard drive over for a corner having earlier been fouled as Altrincham put the ball in the net - rightly ruled out by the referee. With ten minutes to go, Henly also had to save from a low drive from Moult but in truth, our young loanee was rarely troubled. Henly also started the following Tuesday against Dartford, as his side twice threw away a one goal lead to eventually draw 2-2. Beautyman and Fyfield gave the wings the lead twice but were pegged back by Sweeney and Bradbrook respectively.


Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 7

Stuart played the full 90 minutes in the 2nd qualifying round of the FA Cup for Basingstoke as his side travelled to Somerset to face Bridgwater Town. Goals from Liam Enver-Marum (7) and Simon Dunn (28) ensured Basingstoke's progression to the next round, where they play away at Ebbsfleet on October 11th. Moore was given a match rating of 7/10 by the Basingstoke Gazette and they summed up his performance by saying that he:

Didn't have much to do but made a good save with the game goal-less and controlled his area well.


Royston Drenthe - Sheffield Wednesday (SkyBet Championship) Appearances: 4

Wednesday travelled to Wales to play former Premier League side Cardiff City on September 27th as they looked to continue their decent start to the season. Drenthe started on the bench and only entered the fray shortly after the hour mark with the scoreline at 2-1 in the home side's favour. That was how it finished, with Drenthe blazing over an opportunity at the death as Wednesday rallied to no avail.

Following that brief cameo, Drenthe was again demoted to the bench on Tuesday night as his side hosted Ipswich Town. With the score finely poised at 1-1 (Nuhiu for Wednesday and Jonny Williams for Ipswich), Drenthe replaced Jacques Maghoma in the 82nd minute but couldn't help his side find a winner as it ended 1-1 at Hillsborough.
