Branden Horton starred on his debut with an assist for Redditch United and AJ Greaves started two more games for Gainsborough Trinity last week.
Redditch beat Banbury United 1-0 on Saturday with Rovers youngster Horton having a great game, keeping a clean sheet as well as assisting the winning goal with less than ten minutes left to play.
The 19-year-old played 90 minutes at left back for The Reds. This is key first team experience that will be useful to him and Rovers when he joins back up with Darren Moore’s squad just after Christmas.
Greaves gained a lot of game time last week, playing more 150 minutes for Gainsborough across the two games. Unfortunately, the two results didn’t go Trinity’s way, they lost 3-0 to AFC Mansfield and Warrington Town respectively.
However, he had two promising individual performances in two games in which the scoreline didn’t tell the full story. Greaves has been impressing the Trinity fans with his hard work while defending, as well as with his fast thinking when Trinity have possession.
Greaves was unfortunate not to get off the mark for Trinity, having forced saves out of both goalkeepers he played against in the past week.
Greaves and Trinity host Whitby Town and Horton travels to Coalville Town on Tuesday September 22, where the two loanees hope to both gain further game time and claim three points.
