Young guns news - Sunday 4
Tom Bender (Colchester - defender)
Will get senior game time for Accrington Stanley after agreeing a loan deal with
the club until the end of the season.
“I made my debut for Colchester at 16, nearly two years ago now.
Then I was a bit naïve, thinking that I’d be playing every week and looking back
on it now I know that was never going to happen. But being involved with a first
team at such a young age makes it very hard to not be involved after that.
That’s why it’s good for me to come up here, be involved in the first team a lot
more and hopefully get some more games under my belt.” - Tom Bender
(Swindin/Torquay - striker) Picked up
his first appearance last Saturday and a full start in the St Johnstone's Paint
Trophy in midweek against Cheltenham Town.
Josh Dawkin (Norwich - striker) Played 72 minutes for the reserves on Tuesday night as the
Canaries beat Everton 2-1. Connor
Roberts (Everton - goalkeeper) was an
unused sub for the Toffeemen.
(Southampton/Bournemouth - striker)
Picked up an assist as the Cherries beat Hereford 4-1 in the St Johnstone's
Paint Trophy in midweek.
Richards (Bristol Rovers - striker)
Scored for Rovers in injury time but it was not to be enough as Rovers lost 3-2
to Leyton Orient in the St Johnstone's Paint Trophy this week.
