Loan Watch: Saturday, 2nd 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 brief spell with BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South side Salisbury, having joined the Raymond McEnhill Stadium side in October.

Tom was an unused substitute as Salisbury made the trip to the superbly named 'Easy as HGV Stadium' where they faced Farnborough in their latest league outing of the season.

Sadly for the Whites they were unable to build upon their recent Buildbase FA Trophy - First Qualifying Round victory over Dorchester Town as they played out a goalless draw with the Yellows, although a welcome point no doubt.

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

Following on from the Lambs' Birmingham Senior Cup - First Round victory over Leiston the 19-year-old prospect was not named in the squad to take on Rushall Olympic as the managerial duo of Gary Smith & Andrew Danylyszyn considered their options.

The match was a successful affair as goals from Ryan Beswick (9', [P] 34') were enough to cancel out Jonathan Letford's first-half equaliser and secure three welcome points for the Lambs.

Stafford-born Mitchel Candlin is with BetVictor Southern League Central Division side Nuneaton Borough and returned to the starting line-up as they played host to Royston Town in their latest league outing.

Mitch marked his start with an early goal as he was on hand to direct Callum Powell's cross into the back of the net with just three minutes on the clock, a great start for the Boro.

The Liberty Way side were unable to hold onto their lead for very long as Matt Bateman levelled just two-minutes later.

Boro went back into the lead as Powell was able to add to his assist by bagging a goal of his own after around half-an-hour of play. But the home side were ultimately held to a draw as Scott Bridges netted in second-half stoppage time.
