Tommy marks his debut with a double

Loan watch: Wimbledon striker makes an immediate impact

24 February 2020

Young striker Tommy Wood took no time at all to find the back of the net for his new side Tonbridge Angels at the weekend.

Having been in a rich vein of goal scoring form for Isthmian Premier Leatherhead, as well as for our Under-23s side already this season, Tommy bagged another brace on Saturday. He added another two goals to his tally, scoring in the 16th and 84th minutes, to help secure all three points in a 3-0 victory at Oxford City in National League South.

His immediate impact helped ease relegation fears. Tommy’s goal scoring exploits also earned him a place in both the National League South and KentOnline teams of the week, where he is also up for the individual prize too.

Midfielder Jack Rudoni spent time with the Kent club earlier this season and has since gone on to figure in Glyn's starting line-up. One of Tommy’s new team mates, who he only met for the first time last Thursday evening, is Tom Beere. The goalscorer against Accrington Stanley in the League Two Play-off semi final for The Dons is nearing a return to action at Longmead Stadium after a lengthy injury lay-off.

Midfield prospect Ayoub Assal yet again caught the eye for Metropolitan Police. He starred in their 2-0 win over Yate Town in the Southern League Premier Division South game at Imber Court. Defender Archie Procter, Ayoub’s captain at Under-18s level, came on for the closing stages for the hosts.

New Zealand international Nik Tzanev helped Sutton United to a point against leaders Barrow, after it finished 2-2 at Gander Green Lane in the National League.  Fellow goalkeeper Bert White was in goal for Walton and Hersham’s 6-3 victory over Dorking Wanderers Reserves in Combined Counties League Division One. 

Forward Zach Robinson was introduced as a second half substitute for Leatherhead in their 3-0 defeat at Bowers & Pitsea. Defender and third year scholar Jamil Awoyejo came on for the last quarter of the game for South Park, in their 2-1 defeat at Marlow in the Isthmian South Central.
