Yeovil Town loan pair Rob Clowes and Rhys Baggridge completed their fifth 90th minute spell at Sherborne Town on Saturday as part of their loan spell with the Dorset club. Sherborne grabbed a 2-2 draw at home to Dawlish Town, with Marc Caines once again grabbing both goals.
But manager Mickey Spencer was unhappy with his players' performances - with Caines the only player given praise - after 13th placed Dawlish grabbed a two goal lead, with Spencer telling their official site that he felt that recent standards had slipped during the early part of the game:
"In the first 20 minutes we were unrecognisable from the high standard performances from the previous two or three weeks. We had a poor attitude to the basics in the first 20 minutes and it was as if we did not turn up. We dug a hole for ourselves because we gave away two soft goals."
For those hunting for a match to get to next Saturday, whilst Yeovil Town are on a mid-season break, Sherborne's next fixture is an away trip against Wellington, pitching up two Yeovil Town century-makers against each other. Wellington's manager is Warren Patmore, who is the only Glovers player to pass the 100 goal mark since Spencer did the same in the mid-1990s. Then on Tuesday March 30th, Sherborne do the return trip to Dawlish Town, hoping to improve on Saturday's performance.
Sherborne Town: Ashley Knibbs, Ollie Wake, Rhys Baggridge, Keith Emmerson, Aaron Mead, Andy Martin, Ross Plain, Steve Burton, Rob Clowes, Marc Caines, Glenn Nathan. Subs: Sean Westlake (for Wake), Ollie Pearson (for Nathan), Chris Luke (for Plain).
Our other loaned out player Andre McCollin has missed the last two matches for Southern League table-toppers Farnborough. McCollin has made five appearances for the Hampshire side, scoring the winning goals in matches against Leamington and Didcot Town.
However, it looks like McCollin has picked up an injury in last Saturday's win over Merthyr Tydfil. A two-footed lunge on the Glovers striker by Merthyr's Simon Gregory saw him red-carded and McCollin subbed soon after. Farnborough's official site described McCollin as "rested" for their midweek match, but his absence from their 4-0 win over Rugby Town on Saturday would suggest that the striker picked up a knock in that challenge.
Farnborough currently lie 18 points clear at the top of the Southern League, and seem nailed on to head up to Conference South level for the 2010-11 season. Andre is due to remain with them until April 24th - the final day of the Southern League season (excluding play-off matches).
