Loan Round-Up: Winning Starts

13 August 2015


Having signed a season-long loan deal last month, Jack Hunt enjoyed a winning start to life in the Championship with his Sheffield Wednesday side beating Bristol City on the opening weekend at Hillsborough.

The full-back completed 90 minutes before being replaced on his Owls debut as new boss Carlos Carvalhal made a winning start to life in England. Hunt was required in midweek as he sat out his new side’s emphatic 4-1 win against Mansfield in the Capital One Cup first round on Tuesday night.

Jerome Binnom-Williams has also had a bright beginning at Burton Albion after the newly-promoted side won their first ever game in the third tier on the opening day, before causing a Capital One Cup shock on Tuesday night.

The left-back, who will spend the entire 2015/16 campaign at the club, has been played by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in a more advanced left wing role, and made his debut as a 74th minute substitute in a 2-1 win against Scunthorpe United last Saturday before playing the full game as the Brewers dumped Bolton Wanderers out of the League Cup thanks to an 87th minute winner.

There was also a giantkilling by Port Vale who knocked Burnley out of the competition, however they did so without Ryan Inniss who is still awaiting his first appearance of his second spell on loan in the Potteries, which this time will last the entire season. Inniss was also an unused sub in their local derby at Crewe Alexandra which finished goalless.

In League Two, Hiram Boateng has completed all 180 minutes available to him as he gets to grips with life at Plymouth Argyle, but returned to south London last weekend as the Pilgrims got off to a fine start by beating AFC Wimbledon 2-0.

However they exited the Capital One Cup at the hands of Gillingham despite taking a 78th minute lead, but the Gills recovered to clinch a 2-1 victory without the need for extra-time. Boateng will remain at Home Park until January.
