Loan Watch: Plenty of minutes for our six loanees

Oct 21, 2022 | Uncategorised

With the season well underway across all divisions in Northern Ireland, we take a look at how our players out on loan have been getting on at their respective clubs.

Andrew Mitchell

Since the last update, Carrick’s form has begun to stutter, winning two out of their last five in the Danske Bank Premiership and crashing out of both the Co. Antrim Shield and the BetMcLean League Cup to Dundela and Cliftonville, respectively.

Mitchell has been ever-present for Carrick this season, starting in the last four league games, only being named on the bench for the defeat to Cliftonville in the BetMcLean League Cup. With some vital goals and assists so far this campaign, with two assists coming in a 4-3 win against Crusaders, Mitchell has proven to be vital for the Amber Army who will look to stick to winning ways after their recent 3-0 victory over Dungannon Swifts.

Harry Adair & Conall Curran

Harry Adair has started all of the Comrades last five games, while Curran has started two.

Ballyclare have found goals hard to come by in recent weeks, scoring just three times in their last five games. Curran will be hoping to get more appearances over the next few weeks and to be the man who gets our East Antrim neighbours firing once again.

Harry Adair has cemented his place in the middle of the park for the Comrades, with impressive displays making him a mainstay in the team. However, Adair, Curran and the rest of the Ballyclare side will be hoping to find some winning form again in the Championship after picking up just two points from their last four league games which has seen them fall to 7th place in the table.

Ryley D’Sena

Ryley D’Sena has started three of Bangor’s last five games in all competitions, which have seen the Seasiders continue their unbeaten start to their Premier Intermediate campaign.

Sitting top of the table after five games played, D’Sena has played a key role in the defensive stability of their unbeaten start. Bangor’s only defeat in recent times came in the BetMcLean League Cup as they bowed out to Championship side Annagh United, a game that D’Sena started and played 90 minutes.

Odhran McCart

Since being cup-tied for the BetMcLean League Cup tie against his parent club, McCart has started their last two league games, including their first win of the season over Moyola Park.

Both McCart and the Whites will be hoping to build on their latest win and build some momentum to continue pushing up the table.

In cup competitions, Lisburn Distillery have crashed out of both the Steel & Sons Cup and the Intermediate Cup to Glentoran Reserves and Rosemount Rec, respectively.

Max Greer

Max Greer has started four out of the last five games for Knockbreda as they continue to look for consistent form in the Championship.

With their most recent victory coming over Dergview in the Championship, Breda currently occupy 10th place in the league. After showing his talents on loan last season, Greer has been able to find consistency in his performances this season again and he will now be looking to help Knockbreda climb up the table and avoid a relegation battle.
