There was a mixed bag of results for those players out on loan this weekend.
Lewis Hardcastle, who joined Salford City on a month-long youth loan last week, was handed his debut as the Ammies came from behind to beat Curzon Ashton in the 2nd qualifying round of the FA Cup.
Matthew Warburton had put Curzon in front in the 16th minute, but a brace from striker Danny Webber saw Salford lead 2-1 at the break.
17-year-old Hardcastle impressed on debut, playing 78 minutes as they saw the game out to progress through to the 3rd qualifying round.
Also advancing in the FA Cup were Bamber Bridge as two second half goals from Joe Booth saw off Skelmersdale United.
Sam Joel, who had scored for Brig in a 1-1 draw with Radcliffe Borough earlier in the week, wasn't involved on Saturday.
In Scotland, Ayr United maintained their place at the top of Division One with a 1-1 draw against Peterhead.
Jordan Preston started for the home side as Nicky Devlin gave them a second half lead, but the Honest Men couldn't hold onto their advantage as Peterhead's James Redman equalised three minutes from time.
Closer to home Clitheroe had an afternoon to forget as they went down 5-0 away at Warrington Town.
Callum Hendry played the full match on a disappointing day for the Blues.
