Loan Watch: Tuesday, 15th October

Here we take our regular look at how the Saddlers' young prospects are doing as they look to force their way into the club's first-team plans.
First-team manager Darrell Clarke has opted to loan young defender Tom Leak and striker Mitchel Candlin out as the highly rated prospects get a shot at some much-needed first-team football.

Central defender Tom Leak has joined BetVictor Southern League South side Salisbury on a one-month loan deal and enjoyed a dream debut last weekend as he bagged one of his teams three goals against Hendon.

Tom, who turned professional in the summer, retained his place in the starting XI on Tuesday evening as the Whites played host to Taunton Town at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium.

The prospect was unable to get on the scoresheet but was part of the winning side as two Taunton own goals, from Owen Irish and Matt Wright, allowed his temporary team to record a 2-1 victory with Andrew Neal bagging an 83rd minute consolation for the visitors.

Mitchel Candlin is currently with BetVictor Southern League Central Division side Nuneaton Borough and after joining the Liberty Way side on short-term loan deal late last month has now extended his stay and will remain until early January 2020.

Mitch has enjoyed a successful spell in Warwickshire but was not named in the team to face Peterborough Sports on Tuesday evening with the Stafford-born striker missing the trip to Lincoln Road.

Despite befitting from an early own goal the Boro were ultimately on the wrong end of a narrow 2-1 defeat with Jordan Macleod and Mark Jones hitting the back of the net for Sports.
