As many as 10 Addicks were in action for their respective loan clubs last weekend - with Dylan Gavin, Aaron Henry and Josh Davison all finding the scoresheet.
Gavin’s brace inspired Billericay Town to a 3-1 victory over fifth-placed Oxford City at New Lodge to boost the Blues’ survival hopes and earn his place in the Vanarama Team of the Week. The result - a third consecutive triumph - takes Jody Brown’s side to within a point of safety and with a game in hand on 20th-placed Welling, too.
Henry once again starred for Wealdstone as they enjoyed a dream start away at league leaders Stockport County. First, the 18-year-old midfielder delivered a pinpoint corner for Jack Cook to nod home before scoring a sumptuous free-kick from some 25 yards to double the Stones’ advantage. However, a ruthless second-half showing from Stockport saw the hosts run out 4-2 victors.
Fellow academy graduate Charles Clayden, who recently extended his stay at Grosvenor Vale until the end of the season, also started for the Stones as the winger enjoyed a sixth successive 90 minutes.
Davison scored his second goal in as many games for Swindon Town when he latched onto former Addick Jonny Williams’ through ball, but the Robins lost 3-1 at Crawley Town. Despite the defeat, Ben Garner’s side remain in the final play-off spot.
Hady Ghandour was a late substitute for Maidstone United as they returned to the National League South summit with a 2-1 win against Braintree Town at Cressing Road Stadium, though Johl Powell didn’t feature.
Elsewhere in National League South, Lucas Ness and debutant Wassim Aouachria both started for Hampton & Richmond Borough, who held promotion-chasing Dorking Wanderers to a 2-2 draw at Meadowbank.
Charlie Kirk enjoyed a 10-minute cameo for Blackpool as they shared a goalless draw with Sheffield United at Bloomfield Road.
Meanwhile, James Vennings played the full 90 minutes for Bromley on Tuesday night as they suffered a 2-1 defeat at Yeovil Town.
Nazir Bakrin played the entirety of Cray Wanderers’ 4-3 reverse at Bowers & Pitsea in the Isthmian Premier Division.
North of the border, Ashley Maynard-Brewer and Ben Dempsey were both absent for Ross County and Ayr United owing to respective injuries.
