ACADEMY striker Callum Niven joined Mickleover FC on loan and got off to the perfect start at the weekend - netting a late winner in a 2-1 win at home to Witton Albion.

Mickleover, managed by former Brewers midfielder John McGrath and featuring former promotion-winning striker Stuart Beavon, took a first-half lead with a superb strike from Shaquille MacDonald giving the hosts the lead at the Don Amott Arena.

Rob Hopley equalised for Albion just past the hour but Niven, who joined on loan from the Brewers' Professional Development Phase side last week, picked up the ball inside the box following a good spell of possession and smashed it home low to secure a valuable three points for McGrath's side.

Niven's Brewers teammate Ben Radcliffe started the game for Sports and continues to impress in his own loan spell on Station Road.

Thierry Latty-Fairweather had a good debut for National League North side Guiseley at the weekend - scoring in his first game for the Lions - but could not prevent his side from falling to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of AFC Fylde on Saturday.

The young defender lashed the ball into the roof of the net to halve Fylde's advantage but with Guiseley reduced to 10 men in the second half, it would unfortunately end in defeat for Thierry's team.

The Brewers have several youngsters enjoying productive loan spells away from the club currently.

Charlie Williams has enjoyed a good start to life at Redditch United, while goalkeeper Dan Moore has been making plenty of travels up north in his own loan spell at Worksop Town.

Luke Redfern meanwhile has joined Sutton Coldfield Town.
