Bridgwater Town striker Benjani Ben Salem has been loaned out to Toolstation League first division club Chard Town.
Salem only recently signed for the Evo-Stik League Southern club from Gillingham Town.
Bridgwater’s joint manager Kevin Milsom said: “Ben is not playing in our first team at the moment and needs to get some games under his belt. Hopefully he can do this with Chard.”
However, a two-match suspension means he cannot play for Chard until tomorrow week.
Meanwhile, it was not a happy return to Bridgwater for former boss Rob Dray in the first round of the Red Insure Cup this week.
Dray is now assistant manager of Bideford, who lost 5-4 on penalties to Bridgwater at Fairfax Park following a 1-1 draw after extra time.
Milsom, however, was naturally delighted with his team’s display.
He said: “It was an excellent performance especially as we had to change things around a bit because Chris McGrath pulled out of the game during the warm-up.”
