Loan Watch: Bycroft makes vital penalty save


A first-half penalty save from Jack Bycroft helped Dorchester Town to a 3-0 victory over Hendon on Saturday. This and more in this week’s Loan Watch…

With the half hour mark approaching and neither side finding the breakthrough, Bycroft made a vital stop before Dorchester went on to score three goals to secure three important points at home.

It was a stellar performance from Bycroft who has continued to impress during his loan spell, picking up The Magpies March Player of the Month award.

Across the border, Kayne Ramsay and Jake Vokins have enjoyed a hugely successful spell at Ross County, with the latter featuring in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Aberdeen.

A late penalty kick winner from Joseph Hungbo meant County rose from ninth to fifth in the Scottish Premiership, securing their spot in the top six for the first time since 2016.

Another positive result came for Will Ferry and Crawley Town as they claimed a 1-0 win over Barrow in Football League Two.

The Southampton loanee played a pivotal role in the win, providing the assist for Kwesi Appiah’s winner.

Dynel Simeu also retained his place in Carlisle United’s starting XI, as they narrowly lost out to Exeter City who scored an injury time winner.
