LOAN WATCH | Scott Butler continues Marine promotion push

Another weekly round-up of how our loan players have got on

26 February 2024

Scott Butler led the way for our loan players with a standout performance this weekend, as Marine continued as their promotion charge in a thumping 4-0 victory against Bradford Park Avenue.

Former Wrexham midfielder Bobby Grant was inspired in front of goal, furthering their position in the play-off places.

It was Butler’s fourth appearance since arriving at Rossett Park, where he has continued to impress manager Neil Young.

They sit second in the Northern Premier League behind the rampant Radcliffe Borough who continue to run away with the division.

The other win of the weekend came for Doncaster Rovers, where Billy Waters came off the bench to secure a 1-0 win against AFC Wimbledon.

Rovers’ form has been impressive as they end February five games unbeaten picking up three victories from five games.

Waters came off the bench to see out the final 20 minutes to ensure another important result which sees them climb further away from the relegation zone.

Elsewhere in Sky Bet League Two, Jake Bickerstaff made his longest appearance for Accrington Stanley, as he started once again for John Coleman’s side.

The 22-year-old striker led the line for 80 minutes before being substituted, but crucially is building up his playing time.

He will be unavailable for this weekend’s fixture at the STōK Cae Ras, due to the agreement between the sides when he left on deadline day.

Unfortunately for Owen Cushion, it was a disappointing defeat for Colwyn Bay as their quest for survival in the JD Cymru Premier took a major blow.

The tenacious midfielder started once more, but they were dismantled by Pontypridd United, in a four-goal rout for the hosts.

That victory lifted United out of the relegation zone whilst the Seagulls remain bottom of the Playoff Conference table on 17 points.
