LOAN WATCH: Simeon Scores as Grimsby Town Are Held to a Draw

Walsall striker Simeon Jackson is currently on loan to League Two outfit Grimsby Town. Here is an update on his spell at Blundell Park.
On of the more surprising stories to emerge from Transfer Deadline Day was departure of Saddlers striker Simeon Jackson, who joined League Two side Grimsby Town on loan for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign.

This season has been far from Simeon's best and he would be the first to say that he needs to get back among the goals, however, the fact that his Walsall contract is due to expire at the end of June leads us to believe that we have probably seen the last of the Canadian international in a Saddlers shirt.

Grimsby manager Russell Slade wasted very little time in selecting his new signing as thirty-year-old Jackson went straight into the Mariners' starting XI as they faced Cheltenham Town at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon.

Simeon quickly settled into his new side and grabbed the game's opening goal after just three minutes of play as a Luke Summerfield free kick was lifted into the box and a poor attempted clearance sent the ball straight into the path of Jackson, who gladly accepted the gift to finish from six yards.

The Mariners failed to build upon their early advantage and would ultimately have to settle for a point as they gave away a free kick in a central position midway inside their own half. Joe Morrell took the free-kick and chipped the ball into the box with Will Boyle on the end of it to head past goalkeeper Ben Killip.

A disappointing result for Slade's side, given their swift opening, but a promising start to Simeon Jackson's loan spell.
