From La Liga to the National League. A comprehensive round-up of how Boro’s loanees fared for their loan clubs this week.
Joe Fryer (Stevenage)
Found himself on the receiving end of a 7-1 hammering against Luton. It was a performance that Stevenage boss Daryl Sarll dubbed ‘disrespectful to our supporters, our town and our club.’
Matthew Elsdon (Inverness)
Elsdon was an unused sub in Callie’s stalemate against Falkirk.
Callum Cooke (Blackpool)
Cooke returned to Blackpool’s starting line up in their league match against Walsall. 1-1 was the end result, with the midfielder playing the full 90 minutes.
Good point on the road today hopefully back it up with 3 points Tuesday, travelling fans were fantastic 👏🏼🔶⚪️

Harry Chapman (Blackburn)
Chapman came on in the 57th minute for Rovers in their trip to Oldham – but the visitors came away with nothing courtesy of a late Queensy Menig winner. Chapman also received a 75th minute booking.
Joao Morelli (FC Levadia)
Left out of the Levadia squad again as he recovers from a knee injury.
Connor Ripley (Burton)
Burton managed to steady their sinking ship against Bristol City, keeping a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw on Friday night. Ripley though, was an unused sub again in what is probably his most important loan spell yet.
Antonio Barragan (Real Betis)
During the week, Barragan stated his desire to remain at Real Betis, telling Sevilla ABC: “I want to stay here for a long time, my thinking is here and not elsewhere.”
The Spaniard played the full 90 minutes in a nine-goal thriller against his former side Valencia – but ended up on the wrong end of the scoreline as Betis were defeated 6-3.
Julien de Sart (Zulte Waregem)
de Sart remains sidelined with concussion, therefore did not make Zulte’s matchday squad to face Antwerp on Sunday evening.
Pre-match reports from Voetbalkrant indicate the midfielder is closing in on a return to action.
Callum Johnson (Accrington Stanley)
Was an 87th minute substitute during Stanley’s 1-0 win against Coventry.
Mitchell Curry (Harrogate Town)
Started on the bench for Harrogate against Gainborough despite his heroics against Curzon Ashton last weekend. The forward was subbed on in the 65th minute and had a few decent chances to score, but ultimately the non league fell to a 1-0 defeat.
