Cheltenham Town Loan Watch as Sambu returns from Cirencester and Guinan goes to Swindon Supermarine

Adulai Sambu and Zac Guinan have both been sent on a new loan recently with Sambu retuning to Cirencester Town where he enjoyed a strong first half of the season. Sambu scored 10 goals in 13 games, including a hattrick against Basingstoke in the FA Trophy. Cirencester play at the same level as Bishops Cleeve and Slimbridge, although in the Southern League Division One Central rather than Cleeve’s Division One South.

Guinan, who has also spent time at John Brough’s Cirencester, has been loaned to Swindon Supermarine. The first year pro has had a tough season with injury seeing him miss a large spell but recovery with the Under 18s and a goal against Bournemouth last week will see him eager to kick on.

Liggett’s Cinderford Town took a huge step in the battle towards safety with a recent win against Slimbridge AFC, the young midfielder has impressed almost effortlessly at the Southern League Division One South side with Cheltenham’s Academy Manager saying “it’s too easy for him”. Cinderford faced Melksham last time out, losing 4-0 with Bristol Manor Farm up next. Bristol Manor Farm are currently level on 21 points with them having a game in hand on Cinderford. The winner of their meeting will take the last safe spot while the loser will drop into the relegation zone.

Goalkeeper Harris has also impressed out on loan at Bath City. The third choice at Cheltenham, Harris’ side beat Dulwich Hamlet as they look to reach the play offs heading into the end of the season, sitting one place below and only two points behind Worthing who occupy the last spot. Bath are unbeaten in five.

U18s ‘keeper Hoy has also done well on loan at Ardley as they’ve reached the Spartan South Midlands League League Cup final with Hoy playing a starring role. Ardley manager Julian McCalmon said on his keeper.

“Like everyone he has played a massive part, having a keeper who you can trust in and who has the capability to pull off match winning saves is priceless.

“I’ve been delighted with him this year, sometimes we have to remind ourselves he’s only 17, he gives us a base and platform to go and try and play.”

Academy graduate George Lloyd has become a fan favourite at Grimsby, enjoying good goal scoring form with three goal in nine games. A late winner against Rochdale on 11 March and strikes against league elders Leyton Orient was accompanied by a goal in a 3-0 win at Crewe. Lloyd isn’t eligible for Grimsby’s FA Cup quarter final at the weekend.
