Loan watch: Alfie notches opener in Casuals away win

A weekend round-up of the young Dons in action elsewhere

15 November 2021

Saturday’s Isthmian Premier game at Fetcham Grove featured three of our top talents.

Defender Isaac Ogundere starred for Leatherhead, but it was the Corinthian-Casuals midfield duo of Elliott Bolton and in particular Alfie Bendle (pictured) who came out on top on this occasion. Bendle helped maintain the Tolworth-based side’s recent good form, by scoring their opener in the 41st minute in a 2-0 away win. He also went close to setting up teammmate Bolton in the second half. The former was, however, shown a yellow card in the 92nd minute in a game played in front of 541 spectators.

Forward Corie Andrews played in Aldershot Town’s first home win of the season, as they beat Grimsby Town 2-1 at The EBB Stadium in front of  a crowd of 2343 in the National League. He was substituted in the 71st minute.

Fellow striker Aaron Cosgrave made his competitive Dons debut in midweek at Sutton United in the Trophy. He was back in action for Dover Athletic at the weekend, involved in a 2-1 defeat at Plainmoor against Torquay United where a crowd of 2892 were in attendance.

Defender Jack Currie completed another 90 minutes for Eastbourne Borough, who were beaten 2-1 at Concord Rangers in National League South.

Earlier on Saturday, at Gander Green Lane, our AFC Wimbledon Under-18s impressive winning run of 11 successive victories came to an end. Striker Quaine Bartley, who had a loan spell with Cray Wanderers recently, scored what was to be a consolation goal in the 73rd minute in a 3-1 defeat to hosts Sutton.

However, even though the young Dons have played a game more, in the Youth Alliance South East, they still top the table and have a six-point advantage over second place Cambridge United.
