LOAN WATCH | Promotion chasing Scott Butler suffers defeat

Read all about our loan players' progress in our Loan Watch below

6 March 2024

In what was a disrupted week for our quintet away from the Club, it is time to have a deeper dive into their progress in this week’s Loan Watch.

Unfortunately, Jake Bickerstaff was out of action this weekend, as Accrington Stanley visited the STōK Cae Ras to take on the Red Dragons.

The terms of his loan deal meant the young striker being unavailable to face his parent club and they certainly missed his attacking prowess.

Paul Mullin single handedly dismantled Stanley with a first half hat-trick and an assist which resulted in a crushing 4-0 defeat for the visitors.

It was a clinical performance in front of goal from Wrexham and such a heavy defeat ended in John Coleman being relieved of his duties at the Wham Stadium.

The decision has seen widespread disapproval from the football community and leaves the 22-year-old with no Manager for this weekend’s upcoming fixture against Bradford City.

Scott Butler continued his impressive form for Marine and earnt himself a place again in the starting line-up against fellow promotion chasing Macclesfield FC.

The Silkmen have three games in hand on the Lilywhites and handed the visitors defeat in a tight contest.

Babatunde Owolabi and former Wrexham midfielder John Rooney put Michael Clegg’s side two goals to the good, but Josh Wardle pulled one back just before the break.

Butler featured once again for the full ninety minutes as he continues to build upon his first-team football experience.

It has been a tougher experience for Billy Waters’ recently, as minutes have become harder to come by and results have fallen against their favour.

At the weekend they suffered a 3-1 defeat to play-off chasing Walsall where the striker played only sixteen minutes from the bench.

He was named as a substitute once again in midweek but was unused as Rovers held Bradford City to a 1-1 draw at Valley Parade.

Colwyn Bay had a pre-game boost as Pontypridd were handed another points deduction, which cancelled out their recent defeat to United due to fielding an ineligible player in a recent fixture.

Dan Davies is still sidelined through injury, but Owen Cushion came off the bench to see out the final eight minutes of a goalless draw against Haverfordwest.
