Charlie keeps clean sheet, duo make debuts

17 February 2016

Charlie Burns marked his loan extension with Hayes and Yeading United by keeping a clean-sheet in their 2-0 victory over Weston-super-Mare.

On Monday, the goalkeeper agreed to remain in Middlesex until the end of the season after impressing during his three appearances for the National League South side.

He was again included in the starting line-up for Tuesday’s trip to Somerset and thanks to his clean sheet and a brace from Max Worsfold, United picked up a valuable three points to keep them out of the bottom three.

Also in National League South action on Tuesday evening was Harry Hickford, who made his debut for Hemel Hempstead Town in their clash with Truro City.

Hickford signed for the Tudors earlier that day and went straight into the starting XI for the long journey down to Cornwall.

The defender played the full 90 minutes for his new club but couldn’t prevent them slipping to a 4-2 defeat which sees them move eight points adrift of the play-off places.

Like Hickford, Kabongo Tshimanga headed out on loan on Tuesday, signing a month’s long deal at Chesham United.

The striker was named in the starting line-up for the Generals’ Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division fixture with Weymouth and he played just over an hour, helping the Buckinghamshire outfit on their way to a convincing 4-1 triumph.

Meanwhile, in Scotland, Lee Hodson made his third straight start for Kilmarnock in their Scottish Cup fifth-round replay with Rangers.

Killie appeared to have taken the Gers to extra-time after Rory McKenzie cancelled out Martyn Waghorn’s third-minute opener but substitute Nicky Clark won the tie for the away side with a stunning strike in stoppage time.

Attention for the Hodson and co is now solely on their Scottish Premiership campaign, where they will be looking to build on their recent 2-0 win over Motherwell and move away from the relegation places.

At the other end of the table, Simon Church and Aberdeen saw their title chances dealt a blow on Monday after a 3-1 reverse at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The Dons took the lead after only seven minutes but three goals from three different scorers saw them miss the chance to climb level on points with leaders Celtic.

Church played 67 minutes in what was his third appearance since moving to Scotland.
