Robins loa­nee Han­d­ley finds tar­get in cup vic­tory

Gloucestershire Echo - - FOOTBALL -

» ACADEMY young­ster Tom Han­d­ley found the back of the net in Lyd­ney Town’s Bluefin Sport Chal­lenge Cup win over Thatcham Town Devel­op­ment on Satur­day.

The teenager scored his first goal for the Hel­lenic Premier Divi­sion club since join­ing on loan along­side Archie Bren­nan last month.

Matt Bower helped We­ston­super-mare to a key 3-1 away win in the Na­tional League South on Satur­day, while in the equiv­a­lent Na­tional League North Ge­orge Lloyd played for Here­ford in their late 2-1 win over Al­fre­ton Town at Edgar Street.

Front man Manny Duku was a late sub­sti­tute by Bar­net in their 1-0 Emi­rates FA Cup sec­ond round suc­cess over Stock­port County. The sum­mer sign­ing re­placed former Robins at­tacker By­ron Har­ri­son at The Hive.

Will Dawes was amongst the sub­sti­tutes in Yate Town’s 1-0 Evo-stik South­ern League Divi­sion One South de­feat at Paulton.

In­jured Josh De­bayo didn’t fea­ture for Dover’s 2-2 draw at Eastleigh in the Na­tional League, Bath City didn’t have a game so Tom Smith had a free week­end, and it was the same story for Aaron Bas­ford as Worces­ter City also had a free week­end.

Un­der-18s de­fender Grant Hor­ton has joined Bas­ford on loan at Worces­ter City.

The sign­ing did not go through in time for him to fea­ture in Tues­day’s match against Broms­grove Sport­ing in the Worces­ter­shire Se­nior Urn.
