Ossama Ashley wasted no time in making his mark at Billericay Town as he produced an impressive debut for his new loan club.
In a 3-3 draw against Tonbridge Angels in National League South, Ashley won a penalty in the 51st minute, forcing a foul in the area after an impressive drive forward, and Jake Robinson converted the spot-kick. Ashley then set-up Femi Akinwande to put Billericay 2-1 up. Despite former Dons loanee Alfie Potter putting Billericay 3-1 ahead, Tonbridge hit back with two late goals to earn a share of the spoils. Ashley was substituted with 15 minutes remaining.
Several other Dons also produced encouraging displays at their loan clubs. Nik Tzanev maintained his fine form for Sutton United by keeping a clean sheet for Sutton United in a 0-0 draw against Solihull Moors. David Fisher was on target for South Park on Saturday, the forward striking the first for his loan club in a 3-2 home defeat against Ware in the BetVictor Isthmian South Central Division. Jamil Ayowejo also played for South Park in the same match. Ayoub Assal impressed in a 2-0 win for Met Police against Blackfield & Langley. Assal provided the assist for Ollie Knight to put Met Police 1-0 just before half-time.

Dylan Connolly played the full 90 minutes for Bradford City in a 3-0 defeat at Mansfield Town.
