LOAN WATCH | Rovers loanees continue to impress

19 October 2020

Charlie Seaman has continued to impress on loan at Maidstone United while AJ Greaves and Branden Horton's minutes and experience keep building.

Seamon had a brilliant game against Wimborne Town in the third round of qualifying for the FA Cup on Tuesday October 13 scoring twice in a 2-2 draw which saw The Stones eventually lose on penalties after conceding a late equaliser in injury time.

Seaman’s first goal was a beauty, he scored a curling free kick from thirty yards out to give Maidstone the lead. His second goal put his side back ahead after a Wimborne equaliser before the break, this time it was a sweeping finish from close range which comfortably beat The Magpies ‘keeper.

AJ Greaves was back in the starting Xl for Gainsborough Trinity this weekend as they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Witton Albion. Greaves played the full game for Trinity and he put in a very solid and hard-working performance.

He was denied his first goal for Gainsborough by the assistant referee, Greaves rose well at the far post to head home a great cross, but he was flagged offside. Despite the defeat, it was another great run out for Greaves.

Branden Horton and Redditch United suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of St Ives Town after being reduced to 10 men from the 3rd minute of the game. Horton and Redditch battled really well throughout the game, they even took the lead early on, however the constant pressure from St Ives told in the end as the 10 men of Redditch tired.

Horton put in a solid defensive performance and he completed yet another 90 minutes, making it 5 full games in a row for the 19-year-old.

Maidstone United travel to Chelmsford City for their next game and Redditch welcome Nuneaton Town to the Valley Stadium on Saturday October 24.

Gainsborough Trinity have two fixtures this week as they host Stalybridge Celtic on Tuesday October 24 and then they travel to Radcliffe Borough the following Saturday.
