Loan watch: Pair flourishing at Poole


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Poole Town manager Tom Killick has offered a public vote of thanks to AFC Bournemouth for their continued support with loan players.

Killick was speaking after Ben Greenwood had had a hand in no fewer than three goals during their convincing 6-2 win over Southern League South rivals Yate Town.

Greenwood and under-21 team-mate Christian Saydee are the latest Cherries players to be getting valuable game time with the Dolphins.

Killick told afcb.co.uk: “Ben was outstanding on Saturday. He had a hand in three of our goals and turned in another very accomplished performance.

“Both him and Christian have settled in very well and are extremely talented players with big careers ahead of them.

“In recent seasons, we have been fortunate to have had some excellent players from AFC Bournemouth and are very grateful to the club for its continued support.

“Jake Scrimshaw was with us a couple of years ago and made his Football League debut for Walsall last week and Sam Surridge, who was here in 2016, has gone on to play in the Premier League and represent England under-21s.

“We have a good relationship with AFC Bournemouth and hope we have played a small part in some of their players’ development by offering them a taste of men’s football at a competitive level.”

Greenwood made his fourth appearance for Poole at Lodge Road where the Dolphins went behind to Ryan Beckinsale’s third-minute goal.

But after Josh Carmichael had levelled, Greenwood was involved as they took the lead through Corby Moore.

He combined with Luke Pardoe to find Tony Lee who provided the assist for Moore to beat Bluebells goalkeeper Andrew Hannah after 14 minutes.

Moore’s thunderous 25-yarder made it 3-1 just six minutes later before Will Spetch headed home Greenwood’s corner five minutes into the second half to further extend their lead.

Tony Lee struck to make it 5-1 before Beckinsale netted the pick of the eight goals from some 30 yards to reduce the arrears.

Greenwood supplied the assist for substitute Dave Jerrard to complete the scoring as Poole maintained their unbeaten start in the league.

Saydee sat out against Yate after jarring his back in training but could be available for the visit of Gosport Borough to Black Gold Stadium on Tuesday (7.45pm kick-off).


Zeno Ibsen Rossi made his fifth appearance for Kilmarnock in their 1-0 defeat by Hibernian at Rugby Park.

The 19-year-old defender, who has featured in three of Killie’s four league wins this season, played the full 90 minutes.

Hibs moved back to third place thanks to Kevin Nisbet’s 27th-minute penalty awarded after Christian Doidge had been fouled by Clevid Dikamona.


Kyle Taylor (pictured above) twice went close to scoring and set up three chances in Southend United’s 2-0 defeat by Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.

Taylor, who made his sixth appearance for the Shrimpers, saw his 26th-minute free-kick from outside the box flash past the woodwork.

And after James Vaughan had added to Peter Clarke’s first-half opener, Taylor lifted a shot over the crossbar in the 58th minute.

Midfielder Taylor also provided assists for team-mates James Olayinka, Tom Clifford and Timothee Dieng who were unable to beat Rovers goalkeeper Scott Davies.

Jake Scrimshaw made his second substitute appearance for Walsall as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-2 draw at Barrow.

Striker Scrimshaw replaced Elijah Adebayo 13 minutes from time at Holker Street after Caolan Lavery had scored twice for the Saddlers.

Lavery cancelled out Dior Angus’s penalty opener to bring the visitors level in first-half stoppage time and netted from the spot to make it 2-2 after Luke James had restored Barrow’s lead.

Scrimshaw, who made his Football League debut as a second-half substitute in their 1-1 draw at Bradford in midweek, looked on as Emmanuel Osadebe hit the post late on for the Saddlers.


Sam Sherring (pictured above) played his part as Torquay United booked a place in the first round thanks to a hard-fought 2-0 win against Sholing at the Mackoy Stadium.

Defender Sherring made his sixth appearance for the Gulls, adding to the clean sheets he helped them keep in the National League against Stockport and Dover.

Gary Johnson’s team mastered horrible conditions at Sholing and took the lead through Asa Hall’s penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Sherring and his team-mates stood firm at the back and were rewarded when Josh Umerah killed off the Southern League Division One South outfit with a second goal on 77 minutes.  

Goalkeeper Billy Terrell turned in another man-of-the-match display as Wimborne Town’s FA Cup adventure ended following a 2-0 defeat by Boreham Wood at Meadow Park.

Terrell pulled off a string of outstanding saves to keep the National League outfit at bay but was powerless to prevent Jamal Fyfield giving them the lead on the hour.

The 17-year-old saved three penalties as Wimborne booked a place in the fourth qualifying round for the first time since 1986 by seeing off Maidstone United earlier this month.  

Terrell’s heroics included keeping out both Shaq Coulthirst and Sorba Thomas after they had gone through one-on-one together with a save from Matt Rhead described on the Boreham Wood official Twitter as “world class”.

Opposite number Nathan Ashmore made a top-drawer stop to keep out Jack Lovell’s header from point-blank range before Kabongo Tshimanga doubled the hosts lead in the 90th minute.

Brennan Camp and Corey Jordan both featured as Weymouth exited following a dramatic 3-2 defeat by Oxford City at the Bob Lucas Stadium.

The Terras battled back from going 2-0 down to their National South opponents, only to concede a late winner from Louis Hall.

A James Roberts penalty and a goal from Josh Ashby saw the visitors forge 2-0 in front inside the opening 15 minutes.

Camp created a chance for Josh McQuoid which was saved by Ben Dudzinski before Joe Oastler turned Ollie Harfield’s cross past his own goalkeeper to halve the arrears.

Defender Camp went close to restoring parity in the 58th minute, his effort from another Harfield assist flying narrowly past the post.

Andy Robinson levelled midway through the second half and although both teams had chances to win it, the Hoops Hall volleyed.

Ryan Glover started for Hemel Hempstead as they exited after suffering a 1-0 defeat against National South rivals Hampton & Richmond at Vauxhall Road.

Nico Muir bagged the only goal of the game for the visitors after six minutes before Glover was replaced by QPR loanee Stephen Duke-McKenna eight minutes into the second half.
