Andrew Mitchell, Ryley D’Sena, Harry Adair and Conall Curran are all out on loan from the club for the season ahead.
Here, in the first edition of this season’s Loan Watch, you can find out how they got on for their respective clubs in the first competitive gameweek.
Andrew Mitchell, on loan at neighbours Carrick Rangers, started their first Danske Bank Premiership game against Newry City and played the full 90 minutes.
Putting in a Man of the Match performance in the middle of the park, Mitchell then turned provider as his free-kick found the head of Steven Gordon to give Carrick the lead in the game and secure the three points on their opening game of the season.
Harry Adair and Conall Curran are both spending the campaign on loan at Lough 41 Championship side Ballyclare Comrades.
On their first league game of the season against Ballinamallard United, Harry Adair started for the Comrades and played the full 90 minutes. Conall Curran was introduced at half-time in an attempt to break the deadlock with his best chance coming with 59 minutes played, but he fired his effort just wide of the target. The game went on to finish 0-0 and give Ballyclare their first point of the season on the opening weekend.
Ryley D’Sena, meanwhile, is spending the campaign on loan at Bangor and started his first competitive game for the Seasiders in Round One of the Irish Cup against Queen’s University.
Ryley went on to play the full 90 minutes at the heart of the defence ad played a key role in the Seasiders taking the lead as his cross into the box found Ben Arthurs who kept calm to finish. Bangor went on to double their advantage in the second half and secure their spot in the next round of the Irish Cup, courtesy of a 2-0 win.
