Loan Watch: Goalkeeping Duo Impress Again

It was a busy weekend of football for three Everton loanees in action for their temporary clubs. Here is an overview of how our players performed in this week’s Loan Watch... 

Harry Tyrer – Chesterfield    
Opponent: Southend United (H)
Competition: National League
Date: Saturday 27 January    
Result: 3-0 win
Overview: After earning a clean sheet on Tuesday against Woking, goalkeeper Tyrer picked up another on Saturday - and his eighth in the league this season - during a comfortable victory over Southend United.

James Berry netted first for the Spireites, before Joe Quigley and Armando Dobra scored deep into the second half.

Following the weekend’s results, Chesterfield sit 16 points clear at the top of the table, with two games in hand over second-placed Bromley.

Zan-Luk Leban – Farsley Celtic
Opponent: Chorley (A)
Competition: National League North
Date: Saturday 27 January   
Result: 1-1 draw
Overview: Farsley picked up a point on the road at Chorley at the weekend, coming from behind after 22 minutes to equalise just seven minutes later through Sam Leverett’s first goal for the club.

Slovenian shot-stopper Leban featured from the start and was called into action to make a great save in the first half after a goalmouth scramble. Tom Allan followed it with a goal line clearance to keep the visitors in the game at 1-1.

Leban’s side welcome bottom-of-the-table Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday in their next outing.

Kenzie Weir Glasgow City
Celtic (H)
Competition: Scottish Women’s Premier League
Date: Sunday 28 January
Result: 1-0 win
Overview: Weir played every minute in the local derby on Sunday to help Glasgow City to close the gap at the top of the table.

The 20-year-old defender picked up a clean sheet at one end, and came close to doubling the lead at the other. She saw a first-half header saved, before having another cleared off the line shortly after.

Following the weekend’s games, Glasgow City’s result means they are now just two points off Celtic, who are in second place.

Mason Holgate – Southampton
Watford (A)
Competition: FA Cup fourth round
Date: Sunday 28 January
Result: 1-1 draw
Overview: Holgate played the full 90 minutes on Sunday in the FA Cup fourth round clash at Watford, as Southampton pulled back a late goal through Stuart Armstrong to send the tie to a replay.

The on-loan Holgate played at right-back during the game, helping the Saints to extend their unbeaten run to 22 matches.

The replay against Watford is set to take place on Tuesday 6 February (7.45pm GMT) at St Mary’s Stadium.
