Loan Watch: Sweeney scores twice in five goal thriller

access_time 1 week ago

It’s been a good week for on-loan defender Jayden Sweeney.

Sweeney, 19, penned a one-month loan with National League side Wealdstone last Friday, looking to gain more first team experience.

In his debut at Wrexham, The Stones kept a clean sheet in a goalless draw at the promotion favourites, and things were to get even better in the next game.

Sweeney scored twice, including the match winner, in a 3-2 win for Wealdstone away at Dover Athletic.

After opening the scoring, Sweeney was the hero, netting the fifth goal of the game in the 72nd minute.

The win sees Wealdstone push themselves further away from the relegation zone and into the middle of the table, sitting 15th after 16 games played.

It’s a tough test for Sweeney and Wealdstone next, when they face hotly-tipped Stockport County.
