Lacey and Woolley go back on loan as Dance nets last-minute winner

Youngsters Alex Lacey and Jake Woolley will return to loan clubs Eastleigh and Hitchin respectively after being recalled for Luton’s 3-0 defeat to Millwall in the FA Cup on Saturday, writes Mark Wood.

Both were unused subs and boss Paul Buckle said: “They were recalled for that but they will go back now. Ali and Jake are both doing really well so they will go back.

“I think that’s one good thing. We’ve got six or seven out on loan and if (Lewis) Kidd gets out on loan too that makes seven.

“We’re really addressed that side of it. We’ve not got an awful lot over now to play with, which is always a good thing, because you’ve got to look after the development side of things at a club as well and I think we’ve done that very well.”

James Dance netted a last-minute winner as he helped Nuneaton Town to a 2-1 victory at lowly Barrow in the Blue Square Bet Premier at the weekend.

Adam Boyes had put the hosts ahead and, after Andy Brown had levelled in the 89th minute, 77th-minute substitute Dance completed the turnaround.

The weather thwarted Dan Walker from playing a part as Braintree Town’s home game with Southport was postponed.

On-loan striker Alasan Ann played the full 90 minutes as Hitchin Town won 4-0 at Banbury United in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division on Saturday.

Midfielder Adam Watkins was an unused sub for Eastleigh on Saturday as they beat Chelmsford City 1-0 in Blue Square Bet South and played an hour last Tuesday as they won 1-0 against Salisbury City.

Buckle, meanwhile, also intimated younger keeper Lewis Kidd may go out on loan, adding: “Maybe, I think he needs to go out and play games again. It’s more difficult for a goalie because I think of his age.

“There’s not too many people that will invest in a younger keeper. If he stays here and develops with Dimi (Dmitri Kharine) that’s good as well.”
