Weekend loan round-up

23 November 2015

Jordan Preston was on the scoresheet for Ayr United as they consolidated their place at the top of Scottish League One with a 3-0 win over Airdrie.

The on-loan striker grabbed the opening goal at Somerset Park, his sixth of the campaign, before Michael Donald doubled the Honest Men's advantage on the stroke of half-time.

Alan Trouten made it 3-0 from the penalty spot on the hour mark as the visitors ended the match with ten men.

Luke Wall was handed his senior debut on Saturday for Skelmersdale United as they defeated then leaders Blyth Spartans 2-1 at Messenger Express Stadium.

The young Rover, who joined the Evo-Stik Premier League side on Friday, featured in a first half that saw all of the goals scored.

Michael Richardson gave Blyth a 9th minute lead but Skem hit back thanks to Anthony Rendell and Gerard Kinsella.

Skelmersdale's win sees them move away from the bottom four, whilst the loss for Blyth sees them slip to second in the league.

Hot on their tail are Salford City as they maintained their fine recent form with a narrow 1-0 win over Stamford to move up to third.

Lewis Hardcastle again impressed for the Ammies, laying on the pass for Tony Peers to score the only goal of the game just before half-time.

Bamber Bridge had to settle for a point after a 2-2 home draw with Spennymoor Town.

Sam Joel started the match at Irongate but it was the visitors who grabbed the opener on 7 minutes from Shane Henry, before Nicky Platt levelled the scores just past the half hour. However Spennymoor re-took the lead on the stroke of half-time through Joe Tait.

Brig hit back in the second half thanks to Regan Linney's strike, as the game ended 2-2.

Dean Rittenberg was a second half substitute for Chorley as they went down to a 4-2 loss at the hands of Curzon Ashton.

Matt Warburton opened the scoring for Curzon but Andy Bond levelled for the Magpies.

Jack Lynch then gave Matt Jansen's side a 59th minute lead, but just 90 seconds later the home side were back on terms through Nial Cummins.

Two further goals put Curzon in control, and although Rittenberg was introduced with ten minutes to go, Chorley were unable to get back into the match.

The only Rovers player out on loan not involved at the weekend was Modou Cham.

He missed Stockport County's 2-2 draw at Lowestoft Town through injury.
