Pleased for him... but it's safe to say it's rather generous crediting the goal to Stretton!

Basically he's tried to pull the ball back across goal (the ball was going away from goal) and it's come off the defneder's foot, changed direction & looped in.

I don't think the National League have a dubious goals committee though, so Jack's goal it is!

Stretton played 71 minutes, as a lone striker if the Beeb is to be believed. Match ended 1-1 with Stockport equalizing deep into injury time.

Again, Jahmal Hector-Ingram didn't make the bench for Stevenage in League 2.

Jonathan Mitchell was in goal for Northampton in League 1. They lost 0-1 at home to Crewe and are in the relegation zone.

Going out on loan isn’t a bed of roses and most definitely not a case of going out and just getting picked every week because you come from a Championship club (I realise that’s not what you meant)

Clubs often treat you worse than their own players. You’re not a long term concern, asset or problem. There’s the risk of upsetting you or upsetting a player you have under contract for 2 more years and it isn’t a tough decision. The effort invested in trying to improve a player of your own or one you’ve ‘borrowed’ for 6 months with no long term benefit or financial gain is also an easy decision for coaches and you’re often left to your own devices with clubs just having you for what you are not what you could be.

Often the club you’ve gone to are simply looking at financially viable ways of adding to their squad, to overcome an injury crisis, covering a certain position where they couldn’t find a permanent option - either due to finances or suitability. More often than not your just seen as a short term low risk, low cost, minimal effort solution to a short term problem. Very few clubs are looking to help out or improve the player and very few are interested in helping out the parent club....unless of course they are looking to build longer term relationships.

For the player it’s often frustrating. Often at clubs with facilities and standards far lower than the one you’ve come from. The learning process is about life more than football. Crap accommodation, poor pre match preparation, low levels of analysis, lower quality of rehab/prehab programs or physio quality. Most of all for a technically gifted player from a club like Derby stepping into league 2 or the Conference is a culture shock and you find your particular skill set that is admired and respected at Derby literally has no place and no use in the lower leagues with crap pitches and games where the ball literally doesn’t touch the floor all game!! 

Here’s a tweet I saw at the weekend.....imagine a Louie Watson, Sibley, Bird playing in this!! Players like Stretton, Hutchinson and JHI are having to try and use their technical ability to justify getting a game at clubs playing in this and playing this way!!

Not shining in this type of football is no reflection of your ability to play in the championship. It’s just trying to add to your toolbox of life skills!

ex Rams Callum Guy and Offrande Zanzala in the middle of that lot!
