Loan Watch: Saturday, 16th November 2019

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.
Darrell Clarke has opted to loan out young defenders Tom Leak and Luke Little along with striker Mitchel Candlin out as the highly rated prospects get a shot at some much-needed first-team football.

Central defender Tom Leak continues to enjoy a loan spell with BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South side Salisbury, having joined the Raymond McEnhill Stadium side in October.

Tom, who has had to make do with a place on the bench over recent weeks, wasn't involves as his temporary team took on Hayes and Yeading United in their latest league outing on Saturday afternoon.

The match would be a disappointing one for the injury and illness depleted Salisbury side as Ogochukwu Obi's sixty-first minute penalty proved to be enough to secure the win for Hayes and Yeading on a low-key afternoon in London.

Luke Little has joined BetVictor Southern Premier Division Central side Tamworth on an initial one-month loan deal as the former scholar continues to enjoy his first taste of first-team football.

After coming off the bench during last weekend's Buildbase FA Trophy defeat to Gainsborough Trinity, Luke was named among the starters as the Lambs returned to league action and welcomed Kings Langley to the Midlands.

Luke entered another superb display, going on to be named Man of the Match as the afternoon would be a good one for the home side as goals from Bilal Yafai (7') and Tyrell Waite (75') saw the Lambs continue their run of form and seeing them retain their place atop the Southern Premier Division Central.

Mitchel Candlin remains with BetVictor Southern League Central Division side Nuneaton Borough and returned to the starting line-up as the Liberty Way side played host to Stratford Town on Saturday afternoon.

Mitch was unable to get among the goals but did play a part in a win as goals from Joel Kettle (68') and Callum Powell (P - 86') saw the Boro home to victory, despite goalkeeper Tony Breeden seeing a penalty go wide of goal, knocking a light off the ceiling of the stand when the scores were level.
