Loan Watch: Pair enjoy dream start

Shawn McCoulsky and Jonny Smith scored vital equalisers on their debuts for loan clubs Newport County and AFC Fylde respectively.

Striker McCoulsky netted 31 goals for a variety of teams last season, but this was his first in the EFL and it couldn’t have been more vital for the Welsh side.

Trailing 3-2 at Stevenage heading into stoppage time, McCoulsky – who had come off the bench in the 67th minute – lashed home a 93rd minute leveller in front of the travelling fans.

Smith, meanwhile, secured a 2-2 draw at home to Boreham Wood for Fylde. He had only been on the field for eight minutes when he struck the fourth and final goal of the game.

Elsewhere, Ashley Harper and Aden Baldwin both completed 90 minutes for Weston-super-Mare as they lost 2-1 to Poole Town.

Connor Lemonheigh-Evans played 75 minutes for Bath City in a 3-2 defeat at Bognor Regis and Jake Andrews featured in Chippenham Town’s goalless draw with Havant & Waterlooville.
