Young loanees enjoy perfect start

A trio of City youngsters enjoyed a great start to their loan spells at the weekend.

Last week, bcfc.co.uk revealed five players would be heading out on loan for the start of the 2017/18 campaign.

Shawn McCoulsky has joined League Two side Newport County for five months, while Jake Andrews (Chippenham Town), Connor Lemonheigh-Evans (Bath City), Ashley Harper and Aden Baldwin (both Weston-super-Mare) will be spending two months out on loan.

Andrews fired five goals for Chippenham last season en route to the Southern Premier Division title, and was on target again on Saturday in their 4-1 pre-season win at Melksham Town.

Harper also found the net as Weston secured a 3-1 win at Salisbury in a pre-season encounter.

Elsewhere, Lemonheigh-Evans provided an assist as Bath hammered Yate Town 3-0 at Lodge Road.
