Trio return following loan spells

Spireites trio Danny Rowe, Michael Gyasi and Joe Cook have all returned to the Technique Stadium following loan spells at various clubs.

Rowe joined AFC Fylde on loan in the summer in order to get some extensive game time after bad luck with injuries and illnesses in the previous campaign.

The striker played nine league games whilst with the Coasters, scoring two goals. Unfortunately, Rowe hasn’t played since November due to a virus that he is currently suffering from.

Speaking on getting Rowe back, Webb said: “Danny Rowe hasn’t been well for the last few weeks, sadly. He’s had such a tough time in the last 12 months.

“He’s got a few doctors’ appointments to see where he is with his fitness and see if he can join us again.”

Gyasi has also linked back up with the first-team squad after his loan spell with Gloucester City in the National League North.

The forward excelled in his time at Meadow Park as he scored twice in six games whilst also popping up with an assist or two.

The summer signing from King’s Lynn Town caught the eye with some impressive performance in the sixth tier.

Webb said: “When you ask for players to go out on loan, you don’t do it to get them out of the building, you do it for their benefit.

“With ‘Quigs’ and ‘Kabs’ both playing ever so well and the manager liking to play one up top, it always makes it hard when you are that third-choice striker.

“Go and make a name for yourself, go and get fit and go and show that you want to come back and play. Michael has done that.

“Now it’s a case of having a sit-down discussion to see what we are going to do next.”

Joe Cook went out on loan to fellow National League club Dorking Wanderers back in October.

The defender impressed fans at Meadowbank before dropping out of the team in December.

Cook has been recalled from the loan and Webb said it’s a matter of looking and what is next for the centre-back.

He said: “Joe Cook has come back. It was always going to be a long-term loan with a view to come back if need be for both parties.

“It’s tough for Joe because ‘Palms’ has come in and done ever so well. You’ve also got Ty and Laurence pushing.

“That’s another that we will have to sit down after this busy Saturday-Tuesday schedule out of the way and discuss what is best for him next.”
