Loan Watch: City duo secure play-off spot

Jonny Smith and Jojo Wollacott helped their respective loan clubs reach the play-offs this weekend.

Jonny Smith completed 90 minutes for National League side AFC Flyde in their goalless draw at Wrexham. The point means the Lancashire club will now visit Aldershot in the revamped play-offs.

Meanwhile, Jojo Wollacott’s Truro City secured a crucial 1-1 draw at Hampton and Richmond Borough to clinch the final National League South play-off spot.

The White Tigers will now return to the Beveree Stadium on Wednesday evening for their elimination play-off game against Hampton and Richmond, who have lost just once at home all season. The winner will then travel to Essex to play third-placed Chelmsford City.

It was also an enjoyable weekend for Zak Vyner. The young defender was presented with Plymouth Argyle’s Young Player of the Year award ahead of their 2-1 win over Rotherham United. The Pilgrims now sit two points outside the League One play-offs, with two league games remaining.

Antoine Semenyo and James Morton both featured at Twerton Park as Bath City bid farewell to their National League South campaign with a 2-1 win over St Albans City, with the former producing a Man of the Match display.

Max O’Leary couldn’t help Solihull Moors avoid defeat at Eastleigh in the final game of the Vanarama National League. The result means Moors finish the season in 18th which is a fantastic achievement given they climbed out of the relegation zone for the first time this season in April.

Elsewhere, Joe Morrell featured for Cheltenham Town in their 6-1 defeat at home to Coventry City, while Jake Andrews was an unused substitute.

There was also disappointment for Scott Golbourne, who suffered relegation from League One with MK Dons. Two first-half goals helped Scunthorpe United close in on the play-off place, while the Dons returned to the fourth tier of English football for the first time since 2008.

Aaron Parsons helped Weston-super-Mare end their season on a high with a 2-1 win over Hemel Hempsted, while Connor Lemonheigh-Evans’ Torquay United drew 1-1 with Ebbsfleet.

Finally, Cameron Pring continued to shine for Hereford FC. The EvoStik South Premier Division champions secured their 36th win of the campaign with a 2-0 win at St Ives Town.
