Young keeper joins on loan... again

New, comments

Morning folks and welcome to the weekly loan report. This week we've got news of another loan move for our young goalkeeper, George Legg. Elsewhere, Royston Drenthe begins his suspension as Stuart Moore plays in the FA Cup 1st Round.

Royston Drenthe - Sheffield Wednesday (SkyBet Championship) Appearances: 9

Following last week's red card, Drenthe was forced to sit out his side's 0-0 draw with Rotherham United due to suspension. With the international break coming up, it may be a few weeks until we see Royston back in action.

Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 15

Having qualified for the 1st round of the FA Cup last week, Stuart Moore's Basingstoke hosted AFC Telford on Saturday with the winner earning a glamour tie at the League One leaders, Bristol City. Moore started and completed 90 minutes as Chris Flood's 50th minute equaliser earned Basingstoke a replay, having fallen behind to an 18th minute Telford opener. Stuart was given a 7/10 match rating by the Basingstoke Gazette who had this to say on our young loanee's performance:

"Didn’t have a save to make and had no chance with the goal. Struggled with his kicking on an awkward surface but his handling was excellent in tricky conditions."

George Legg - Dunstable Town (Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division) Appearances: 1

Having signed on loan for Dunstable Town on Friday, George told me that he had "signed all day yesterday (the previous Friday)" and that he will be "there till January." Legg made his Dunstable debut against Cirencester Town the following day but couldn't prevent them from slipping to a 3-0 defeat. Legg then dropped to the bench for their trip to League Two outfit Luton Town in the Bedfordshire Senior Cup. Despite being more than three divisions above the Evo-Stik side, Luton still fielded a strong outfit containing the likes of Luke Rooney, Alex Lacey, Shaun Whalley et al. Dunstable Town went ahead against the run of play midway through the first half with a goal from ex-Royal Scott Davies, before being pegged back shortly before half time. A tight second half saw no further goals, so the tie went to penalties. Luton keeper Elliot Justham only needed to save the one penalty as Ricky Miller converted their fifth and final spot kick to progress on penalties 5-3 (1-1)
