Loan watch: Dylan's strike earns headlines

Weekend round-up of Wimbledon players in action elsewhere

2 March 2020

There were plenty of other Wimbledon players making headlines on Saturday, while we wrapped up the points dramatically at Priestfield.

Irishman Dylan Connolly opened his account for Bradford City in spectacular fashion, against high-flying Plymouth Argyle in League Two. The winger slammed the ball into the top corner from distance, deep into time added on at the end of the first half, to give the Bantams a 2-0 lead.

Bradford held on to win 2-1 and secure all three points, with Dylan taking the man-of-the-match award and third place in Sky Sports News Goal of the Day.

Goalkeeper Nik Tzanev also earned plaudits for his clean sheet in Sutton United’s 1-0 victory at Bromley in the National League. The New Zealand international was included in the Non-League Paper’s Team of the Week for his performance.

Right-back Kyron Stabana helped Cork City get off the mark with their first league win of the season on Friday night. The defender started the game and completed the first-half of Cork’s 1-0 victory over Finn Harps at Turner’s Cross Stadium.

Goalkeeper Bert White kept a clean sheet for Walton and Hersham on Saturday, in their 1-0 win against Bagshot in Combined Counties League Division One.

Striker Tommy Wood continues to help Tonbridge Angels pull away from the relegation zone in National League South. He started the Kent club’s 1-0 victory away to Dulwich Hamlet. Defender Reuben Collins was an unused substitute, as Billericay Town drew 1-1 at Eastbourne Borough.

Defender Jack Madelin was made to wait for his Walton Casuals debut as their match was postponed. The weather also denied game time for Ayoub Assal (with Metropolitan Police) and fellow midfielder Finlay Macnab and striker Zach Robinson (for Leatherhead).

Defender Archie Procter, also on loan to Metropolitan Police, returned to captain our under-18s to a 1-0 victory over Peterborough United. The victory put Rob Tuvey’s side two points clear at the top of the EFL Youth Alliance Merit League 1.
