LOAN WATCH | Three Points & FA Cup Heartache

Redmond, Green and Bickerstaff in action

6 February 2022

Three Wrexham players are out on loan at the moment at various levels following the January transfer window. Here we take a look at their progress including FA Cup heartache, NLS wins and a vital three points in the Northern Premier League.

Devonte Redmond

The pick of the games came from Aggborough as Devonte Redmond’s Kidderminster welcomed Premier League West Ham United in the FA Cup Fourth Round. The National League North side had already beat Championship outit Reading int he previous round.

Redmond began the game on the bench as Alex Penny gave the Harriers a shock lead, The creative middle-man entered the game on 78 minutes as they looked to maintain the lead and cause quite possibly the biggest upset in FA Cup history. But, it wasn’t to be. Declan Rice scored in stoppage time before forcing the tie into extra-time, where Jarrod Bowen scored in stoppage time of the second half to break Aggborough hearts.

Cameron Green

Cam Green made his debut for St Albans City this weekend and things couldn’t have gone much better for the left-back. Green started alongside two other new signings on Saturday as the Saints faced Havant & Waterlooville away from home.

Donning the number 25 shirt, Green put in a solid performance as St Albans kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win via Shaun Jeffers’ goal on the counter attack. Cam and the Saints sit 7th in the National League South, occupying a play-off spot. They’re next in action on Tuesday as they take on Ebbsfleet United.

Jake Bickerstaff

Striker Jake Bickerstaff was one of two outgoings on deadline day, where he joined Pitching In Northern Premier League side Nantwich Town on loan for the season. Bickerstaff’s new side faced Stockport County in midweek in the Cheshire Senior Cup, but registration hadn’t arrived in time to be involved.

This weekend his new side faced Morpeth Town - unbeaten in their previous 18 matches - and Bickerstaff was named on the bench. All the goals came in the first half as Dan Cockerline hit a double for the Dabbers before Morpeth pulled one back via a Liam Noble penalty.

Bickerstaff came on for the final half-hour as Nantwich looked to either better their advantage or at least hold what they had, and were successful as they picked up three points and pulled themselves to within three points of Mickleover who sit in the final place outside the relegation zone.

They next face Warrington Town on Tuesday.
