The Football Manc Cave is looking at two loanees that Rochdale recruited this summer who you should look out for throughout the season.
Rochdale had a busy summer as they welcomed Brian Barry-Murphy to start his first official season as manager and quite a few loanees and new signings.
They’re doing a good job so far in League One and it was only this week that saw them lose to Sunderland 2-1. As the squad develops, here’s two loanees that fans should look out for and who should be returning to their parent clubs a little more confident.
After signing the goalkeeper from Brighton, Brian Barry-Murphy got him straight into the action as he has been starting for Dale. It’s a shame that he will probably go back to Brighton once his loan spell is up as he’s fit in so far. However, he’s got a big job to do at the Dale while he’s there and this experience should give him the confidence he needs going forward and a better chance at being recognised if he wants to develop in his career.
The centre back has joined the Dale on a loan spell from Blackburn. He’s been getting into the squad and been on the bench. He’s only 20 and at this age, moving around to get playing experience is vital. He will most likely return to Blackburn feeling ready to take on more challenges and this season should help him develop.
