LOAN WATCH | Elerewe wins MOTM on full Bromley debut


Deji Elerewe received Bromley's Man of the Match award on his full debut for the National League side last weekend.

The 19-year-old centre-back earned plaudits from the Hayes Lane faithful for an impressive display as the Ravens fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of table toppers Wrexham. 

Academy Director Steve Avory said: “I thought Deji handled it very well. He came through the challenge of Wrexham's tall striker Ollie Palmer really well.

"As well as winning his headers and duels against Palmer, I thought he also showed his composure and football ability to get Bromley playing from the back.

“It was a really encouraging performance and Andy Woodman, the manager, phoned me to say how pleased he was.”

In the EFL, Charlie Kirk registered an assist in Burton Albion's 3-2 win at Port Vale last weekend, with fellow Addick Sam Lavelle absent from the Brewers' matchday squad having recently undergone shoulder surgery.

Cambridge United loanee Conor McGrandles was ineligible on Saturday as the Addicks claimed a 2-1 win at the Abbey Stadium, while Alex Gilbey played the full 90 minutes in Stevenage’s goalless draw with Carlisle in League Two. 

AFC Wimbledon loanee Diallang Jaiyesimi remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

U21 defender Sam Oguntayo made his debut for Eastbourne Borough last weekend, starting at left-back as the National League South side earned a 2-0 victory at home to Slough Town.

Goalkeeper Nathan Harvey played the entirety of Chatham Town's 4-2 triumph at Chichester City in the Isthmian League South East Division and Sahid Kamara continued his run of appearances for Corinthian Casuals, who suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Enfield Town in the Isthmian League Premier Division.    

Elsewhere in non-League, Charlie Barker played the entirety of Wealdstone’s 4-1 reverse at Scunthorpe United and Dylan Gavin was an unused substitute in Dulwich Hamlet's 4-2 defeat against league leaders Ebbsfleet United.
