Loan Watch: Wednesday, 26th December

Walsall goalkeeper Joe Slinn, defenders Dan Vann and Callum Cockerill-Mollett, and winger Tobias Hayles-Docherty, are currently spending time away from Banks's Stadium as they look to force their way into Dean Keates' first-team plans.
Summer signing Slinn is on a season-long spell with Rushall Olympic, whilst academy products Vann, Cockerill-Mollett, and Hayles-Docherty are enjoying short-term stays with Chasetown and Halesowen Town respectively.

Joe Slinn returned to Rushall Olympic's starting XI as they took on near-rivals Tamworth in their latest Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division Central fixture of the season.

Slinn, who had been replaced by on-loan West Brom 'keeper Adam Przybek over recent weeks, was unable to keep a clean sheet on his return but did help his side to earn a point as Danny O'Callaghan's 10th minute opener was cancelled out by Lambs prospect Nkosizile Maphosa's second-half effort.

Dan Vann and Callum Cockerill-Mollett continued their spell in the Chasetown starting XI as they faced Leek Town in a Boxing Day Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One West encounter.

The Saddlers duo, who have enjoyed plenty of football since joining Chasetown earlier this season, played for the full ninety minutes as the Scholars and Blues played out a one-all draw in front of 259 fans at the Scholars Ground.

The points were shared as George Cater's superb free-kick put Chasetown back on level terms following Rob Stevenson's 20th minute opener.

Tobias Hayles-Docherty was not in action on Wednesday evening as Halesowen Town took on Stourbridge in a match dubbed the 'Number 9 Derby'/

The match itself was settled by three goals as the Glassboys added to Halesowen's issues, running out clear winners with Luke Benbow and Kaiman Anderson getting their names on the scoresheet.
