Loan Watch: Saturday, 30th 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.

Tom Leak is enjoying his second loan spell with BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South side Salisbury, having re-joined the Raymond McEnhill Stadium side until Saturday, 11th January 2020.

Salisbury manager Steve Claridge welcomed Tom back to the club by naming him in the starting eleven to face Walton Casuals as the Whites returned to league action by visiting the Casuals' Elmbridge Sports Hub ground.

Sadly for Tom and his temporary teammates they were unable to keep their sheet clean as goals from Rene Howe (5' & 88') cancelled out Warren Bentley's eighty-seventh minute leveller and secured the points for the home side.

Luke Little remains with BetVictor Southern Premier Division Central side Tamworth having joined the local club on an initial one-month loan deal, with the former scholar continuing to impress during his first spell of first-team football.

Luke was named in the starting XI as the Lambs returned to action as they played host to Lowestoft Town on a chilly Saturday afternoon in the Midlands.

Little played for the full ninety minutes and was part of a successful side as they comfortably dispatched of their opponents by four-goals-to-one with Ryan Beswick (3' and 9'), Tyrell Waite (47'), and Rhys Hoenes (51') netting to cancel out Malachi Linton's forty-fifth minute strike and secure three welcome points.

Mitchel Candlin remains with BetVictor Southern League Central Division side Nuneaton Borough and retained his place on the bench as the Boro took on Leiston on Saturday afternoon.

The match was a closely fought affair which ultimately resulted in the spoils being shared with Andrew Fennell netting after eighteen minutes for the home side and Ryan Edmunds leaving it until two minutes from time before bagging an equaliser.

Mitch was introduced into the action after sixty-four minutes, replacing Dec Towers, and saw an effort slip past the post nine minutes later.
