Argyle Loan Watch

AS the season settles down into a regular pattern, Argyle have a number of players out on loan and we’re starting a weekly series to keep tabs on their progress.

Ashley Smith-Brown
Ash moved on loan to fellow Sky Bet League Two side Oldham Athletic just prior to the start of the season and has already made seven appearances for the Latics, starting with his debut in the 3-2 win over Liverpool Under-21s in the Trophy.

While the Latics have endured an inconsistent start to their league campaign, the move has already given Ash the regular game-time he desired, although he naturally missed Oldham’s weekend draw at Home Park, as loan players are not permitted to play against their parent-clubs. Ash will be back in contention for a place when Oldham welcome Grimsby on Saturday.

Alex Fletcher
Fletch joined National League outfit Aldershot Town on loan last week and made his debut as a substitute in the weekend defeat to Barrow. The Shots were 2-0 down when Fletch joined the fray and while they managed to pull a goal back, the game ended in defeat.

Aldershot are struggling near the bottom of the National League and Fletch will be hoping to make an impact this weekend, when his new side travel to fifth-placed Stockport County.

Ryan Law
Defender Ryan is on loan at Paul Wotton’s Truro City until January and it has been a fine start to the campaign for the White Tigers, as they currently sit second in the Southern League Premier Division.

Law has been a regular starter for Truro and played his part in a 2-1 win over Wimborne Town in the FA Cup on Saturday. Truro host Gosport Borough in the league on Saturday.

Luke Jephcott
Jephers is also on loan at Truro until January and the young forward has made a quick impression at Treyew Road, scoring a couple of goals for the club and also played the full 90 minutes in the victory over Wimborne.

Tom Purrington
Purrington signed on loan at Southern League side Dorchester Town at the end of August in a deal that will last until January. He made his debut in the 3-2 home loss to Hartley Wintney but picked up a slight injury that saw him miss Saturday’s FA Cup win at Evesham.

Cameron Sangster
Cameron joined Dorchester on the same day and also made his debut in the Hartley Wintney game, following up with a good performance in the Evesham victory. Dorchester are currently third from bottom in the Southern League Premier and their Pilgrim recruits will be hoping to improve that position when the Magpies travel to mid-table Hendon on Saturday.
