We take a look at how all of our young Bluebirds got on in action for their respective sides in this week’s loan report…

Sion Spence


George Ratcliffe and Sion Spence – Barry Town United

Bluebirds duo George Ratcliffe and Sion Spence both started for Barry Town United on Saturday. The impressive Ratcliffe was between the sticks, whilst midfielder Spence featured for 65 minutes before being substituted.

Sadly for Barry, it was Newtown who took the points, with an 81st minute strike to win the match 1-0. The result sees Town slip into third place in the JD Cymru Premier.

Keenan Patten

Keenan Patten and Dan Griffiths– Penybont FC

Penybont put in a heart-filled display to take a point against table topping Connah’s Quay Nomads, playing out a 0-0 draw at the SDM Glass Stadium.

Midfielder Keenan Patten started for Penybont, playing for 70 minutes before being replaced by Nathan Wood.

Striker Daniel Griffiths started the match on the bench, and was introduced after 62 minutes, replacing Kostya Georgievsky. Bont remain in tenth position in the JD Cymru Premier.


Mark Harris - Wrexham

Wales U21 international Mark Harris started on the bench for Wrexham on Saturday, as the Dragons faced Ebbsfleet United away from home.

Sadly, Wrexham suffered a 2-1 defeat at Stonebridge Road, placing them at the foot of the National League table.

Harris was introduced after 78 minutes, and was unfortunate not to be able to help his teammates find a late leveller.

Jack Bodenham for Hereford FC


Jack Bodenham – Hereford FC

The Bulls were held to a draw by Farsley Celtic at Edgar Street, who scored an agonising late equaliser to make the final score 1-1.

Defender Jack Bodenham, on loan until the end of the season, began the match on the bench, but was introduced in the 73rd minute to replace the injured Martin Riley. 

Connor Davies


Daniel Martin and Connor Davies – Weston Super-Mare

Duo Daniel Martin and Connor Davies both started for Weston-Super-Mare on Saturday, as the Seagulls fell to a narrow 3-2 defeat at the hands of Swindon Supermarine.

Left-back Martin played the full-ninety for Weston, who found themselves 3-0 down but got back into the contest with two second half goals.

On the opposite flank, Davies played for 86 minutes before being substituted, and was awarded the Man of the Match Award for his impressive efforts.
