LOAN WATCH: Bevan earns bragging rights over Seddon


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Owen Bevan came up trumps in the battle of the Cherries at Bolitho Park on Saturday.

The under-18s defender took on teammate Jack Seddon as loan clubs Truro City faced Poole Town in the Southern League Premier South division.

It was Bevan’s side who earned the bragging rights as they secured a 3-0 victory, Bevan himself grabbing the second goal.

Paul Wotton’s side, who maintain play-off hopes, opened the scoring just three minutes into the game as Alex Battle tucked home.

Bevan’s starring moment came as he rose highest to meet Niall Thompson’s cross and powered a header beyond the Poole goalkeeper.

The Cherries man even thought he’d grabbed a second goal when he headed home from a Will Dean free-kick but was thwarted by the offside flag.

Battle netted a second goal in the 52nd minute to wrap up the victory, tapping home from close-range.

Seddon played the full 90 minutes for Poole and the two teams are now separated by just a single place.


Christian Saydee provided an impressive cameo for new side Burton Albion but the debutant was unable to prevent a defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at Pirelli Stadium.

The 19-year-old linked up with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side on transfer deadline day and was named on the substitutes bench for his opening game.

George Byers opened the scoring for the visitors midway through the first half before Sylla Sow confirmed the points with the second in the 81st minute.

Saydee replaced Jacob Maddox in the 79th minute as Burton chased a route back into the game and went close to scoring.

He latched on to Gassan Ahadme’s pass and powered an effort at goal that beat Bailey Peacock-Farrell but not the post, before a follow-up effort by the forward forced a terrific save from the Northern Ireland international.


Sam Sherring’s Cambridge United saw their dream FA Cup run finally come to an end in the fourth round at the weekend.

The defender had joined the squad just days after their famous third round win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park.

However, they couldn’t repeat the feat at home to Luton Town as goals from Reece Burke, Carlos Mendes Gomes and Admiral Muskwe ensured a comfortable win for the Hatters.

Sherring played the full 90 minutes, his fifth appearance for the U’s since his temporary move last month.


Ryan Glover came on as a first-half substitute as Aldershot Town crashed to defeat against National League strugglers Barnet.

Early goals by Rob Hall and Sam Beard forced Mark Molesley into two first-half changes, Glover replacing Jacob Berkeley-Agyepong.

However, a further goal from Adam Marriott confirmed the win for Barnet, despite a late consolation goal by Tommy Willard.

Glover was making his 19th appearance for the Shots, having extended his loan during the January transfer window.  


Luke Nippard continued to feature for Eastbourne Borough as they were held to a goalless draw against Braintree Town on Saturday. 

The Sports are right in the play-off mix in the National League South and travelled to strugglers Braintree hoping to build on back-to-back wins. 

Nippard was on the pitch for the full 90 minutes in a game of few chances, Charley Kendall forcing a good save in the latter stages. 

He could be back in action tonight as Eastbourne welcome Tonbridge Angels to Priory Lane.
