Loan Watch: August

August proved to be a promising month for our City loanees, as they all settled into their new squads.

Charley Kendall went straight into Sutton United’s matchday squad for their Papa John’s Trophy match against Chelsea U21 last Wednesday, coming off the bench to help them see out their 1-0 win.

Hakeeb Adelakun also tasted cup success after helping Gillingham book their place in the Carabao Cup third round, with Adelakun on target in the penalty shootout for the Gills against Exeter City.

As for Gainsborough Trinity, Hayden Cann is cementing his place in the Holy Blues’ team having started their most recent six league matches. During this time Cann has picked up two clean sheets.

AFC Rushden & Diamonds brought in Morgan Worsfold-Gregg during the middle of August, with the midfielder starting in the two most recent league games against St. Ives Town and Ilkeston Town.

Sam Long and Jovon Makama have both adjusted to life in the National League North having signed for Boston United and Brackley Town respectively. The 19-year-old goalkeeper started in five league meetings during August and proved to be a key player as the Pilgrims picked up their first clean sheet of the season against Banbury United.
