Bostik League Premier club Worthing have sent youngsters Matt Boiling, Reece Hallard, Ruben Schneider and Hayden Skerry out on dual registration with Southern Combination League Premier Division outfit Loxwood.
Defender Boiling, who has been away with England Colleges in Italy this week, has played nearly forty times for the Rebels first-team in the past two seasons, making his debut as a 16-year-old in the 1-0 victory over Merstham last term.
However, his hopes of cementing a regular place this season have been limited by the solidity of the current back three of Joel Colbran, Alfie Young and Sam Rents and he recently spent some time on loan with Bostik South side Horsham.
Hallard is another who have amassed several first-team appearances, featuring over twenty times this season, but the arrival of Joe Clarke and Danny Barker have seen him slip down the pecking order somewhat and heads to Plaistow Road to get some much-needed game time.
The versatile Schneider featured heavily when Adam Hinshelwood first arrived back at Woodside Road but has not appeared since the 2-1 Sussex Senior Cup defeat at Eastbourne Borough at the beginning of December – a match that saw him suffer a concussion.
The youngest of the four, Skerry is yet to make a competitive appearance for the first-team but has starred for the under-18s so far this season, netting 11 goals as the team push for a top three finish.
Hinshelwood is hoping for a positive reaction from each player, telling the club`s official website: “We’ve got a big squad here and it’s tough on the ones that aren’t playing at the moment because the team has been doing well.
“Loxwood is a good club and it will do all four players good to go and get a run of games.”
He was also quick to add that all four remain in his plans: “We’re lucky to have a lot of talented young players; Matt, Reece and Ruben have all played a lot for this club at such a young age and never let us down and Hayden continues to impress for the under-18’s.
“The idea is for them to go there and get some competitive football under their belts and go from there”.
