Loan Round-Up: Ladapo Nets On Home Bow

17 January 2017

Freddie Ladapo announced himself to the Shrewsbury Town fans by scoring on his debut as they beat Bradford City 1-0 last weekend.

The striker saw his loan spell at Oldham Athletic come to an end at the start of the month and quickly moved on to Shropshire where he made his debut in a 1-1 draw with Swindon Town, and he helped the League One strugglers claim a big three points by tapping home a rebound on 41 minutes to help pull the Shrews up to 21st in the table, level on points with Bury who sit just outside the bottom four.

Afterwards, he said: “I’m happy to be the man to get the club out of trouble. People might like to think that I can offer more but I like to get the goals. I’ve always looked to get into double figures for this whole season so hopefully by the end I can comfortably say I’ve done that.”

Another man who switched teams earlier this month was Hiram Boateng but things haven’t gone as well for the midfielder at Northampton Town, having started two games and seeing the Cobblers lose 5-0 against the team he previously featured for this term Bristol Rovers, and then losing 2-1 at home to Scunthorpe United – a result that leaves them 16th in League One. 

Meanwhile, Keshi Anderson saw his time at Bolton Wanderers come to an end and has returned to the Eagles, but Luke Croll has extended his stay with Exeter City until the end of the season however he hasn’t featured for the Grecians since the end of November after suffering a concussion which has needed extra treatment but was named on the bench for last weekend’s 3-0 win against Grimsby Town which has pulled them up to 10th in League Two.
