Loan watch: Tapp on the scoresheet again for Town

Three of four MK Dons loanees in action on Boxing Day...

27 December 2018

Finn Tapp made it two goals in two games for Staines Town but it wasn’t enough for them to avoid a Boxing Day defeat at Beaconsfield Town.

The MK Dons defender, who netted in Staines’ fixture before Christmas, beat the Beaconsfield goalkeeper at his near post to put the Swans 2-0 up at Holloway’s Park.

However, Staines Town relinquished their lead before half-time courtesy of two goals in 12 minutes from the hosts, who went on to win the contest with a quarter of an hour left to play.

The Surrey club remain bottom of the Evo-Stik League South Premier Division South table. They travel to Farnborough this Saturday afternoon.

Elsewhere, Liam Sole was involved in Hampton & Richmond Borough’s solitary goal in their National League North clash with Woking on Wednesday.

The winger was brought down on the edge of the area and Hampton, who trailed 2-0, scored from the resulting free-kick. They weren’t, though, able to find an equaliser, instead falling to a 3-1 loss.

Sole & Co remain 15th in the National League South table, six points adrift of the play-off places. They visit Chippenham Town on Saturday.

Sam Nombe played 90 minutes for Oxford City in their 1-1 Boxing Day draw with Hungerford Town.

Nombe went close to scoring a second City goal three minutes into the second half while he also teed up teammate Craig Fasanmade, who couldn’t convert what would have been a match-winner.

City, seventh in the National League South, will hope to return to winning ways at the weekend when they take on Wealdstone.

Not in action on Boxing Day was Brandon Thomas-Asante, who was an unused substitute in Sutton United’s 1-0 National League win over Bromley.

The MK Dons forward will hope to be involved this weekend when Sutton take on Aldershot Town.
