Loan Round-Up: Jaiyesimi nets maiden pro goal

4 October 2017

Norwich City youngster Diallang Jaiyesimi netted the first goal of his professional career on Tuesday night, scoring for Grimsby Town against Scunthorpe United.

The 19-year-old struck in the 32nd minute to put Grimsby ahead in the Checkatrade Trophy Northern Section Group H match.

Collecting the ball from former City Academy player Sam Kelly, Jaiyesimi displayed composure to open his Mariners account with a composed finish.

However, two goals from United's Tom Hopper turned the tie as Scunthorpe secured a 2-1 victory.

In the same group, Harry Toffolo featured for just over an hour as Doncaster Rovers edged to a 1-0 success over Sunderland Under-21s.

Issam Ben Khemis scored the games only goal shortly after Toffolo had been replaced by Morgan James, with Rovers' tally of five points enough for them to progress with a game to spare.

Another Canary to find the back of the net in the same competition alongside the aforementioned Jaiyesimi was Carlton Morris, who scored for Shrewsbury Town for the second match in succession.

The frontman bagged the middle of three goals as Town ran out emphatic 3-0 winners at home to West Bromwich Albion Under-21s in Group E of the Northern Section.

That result ensured Salop made it six points from six in the group stages, sealing their progress to the next round in the process.

Ebou Adams played the opening 76 minutes for the hosts, while Ben Godfrey wasn't involved in the matchday squad. 

In the National League, Torquay ended their winless start to the season in style with a 4-0 dismantling of Maidenhead United at Plainmoor.

All four goals came in a dominant first half for The Gulls, with defender Michee Efete an unused substitute for the home side.

Woking also enjoyed a successful midweek, winning 2-0 away to Chester as they moved up to third-place in the league standings - City's Louis Ramsay missing the game through injury.

Elsewhere, Henry Pollock played the first 55 minutes as Norwich United went down to a 3-0 home defeat to Soham Town Rangers in the Isthmian Football League North Division.

In the same league, Callum Ellesley featured for Cheshunt as they were beaten 3-1 at Ware.
