LOAN WATCH | 2018/19 Season (2)

LOAN WATCH | 2018/19 Season (2)

It’s been another busy week for the lads who are playing away from Southport. Whilst Liam Watson’s side were in action twice over this Bank Holiday weekend, a number of players out on loan also got a run out.

Lewis Doyle

The young Southport player was in action for Droylsden in an FA Cup cracker away at Squires Gate, with the game finishing four a piece.

Dave Pace’s side took an early lead, Rouse putting the ball in the back of the net within seven minutes to set the tone for an exciting game and a first half that would feature five goals.

Despite leading going into the final 10 minutes, an 84th minute equaliser for Squires Gate ensured the two will have to meet again in a replay.

The Droylsden defence suffered at the back in the following game in the league against Mossley, with Doyle not featuring at all due to the manager rotating the squad.

Two goals in the ten minutes after half time, saw the Bloods succumb to a 3-0 defeat.

Droylsden will be hoping to turn things around in their next game away at Market Drayton Town, whilst Lewis will be hoping to regain his starting spot.

As well as this they also have an FA Cup replay to prepare for against Squires Gate, to decide who will play either Glossop North West or City of Liverpool in the next round.

Dan Cockerline

At Hednesford Town, Dan Cockerline featured in both bank holiday games for The Pitmen.

After a defeat and a victory at the start of the season, Cockerline was on the losing side once again on Saturday when his side took on Gainsborough.

A goal either side of half time from Trinity was enough to condemn Hednesford to their second defeat of the season.

Following a 2-1 loss, Hednesford’s next game was an away trip to West Yorkshire where they took on Farsley Celtic.

After a goalless first half, Jed Davies put the Pitmen in front 60 seconds after the restart.

Farsley briefly levelled the score, before Jermain Hollis ensured all three points would be heading back to Staffordshire.

Next up for Cockerline and Hednesford is an away trip to Whitby Town on Saturday, before a midweek trip to Stafford Rangers.

Marine Duo

Meanwhile at Marine, who had started the season with a draw and a defeat, both Liam Davies and Andy Hollins had limited game time throughout the bank holiday.

Neither of the pair were named in the squad for Saturday’s 4-1 defeat to Basford United, whilst Liam Davies was an unused sub in the following game against Lancaster.

An early goal from former Southport defender, Chris Doyle, earned the Crosby side their first victory of the new season.

Hollins and Davies will be hoping to play a part in the upcoming games against Grantham Town and Witton Albion this week.
