Eve makes loan move
Dale Eve, the Bermuda goalkeeper, has signed a short-term loan deal with Newcastle Town, who play in the Northern Premier League Division One South.
The 19-year-old will be hoping to gain more first-team experience at Town, who he has joined on an initial one-month loan along with fellow Stoke goalkeeper Dominic Kurasik.
Eve has already benefited from the loan system having brief spells at Sky Bet League Two side Fleetwood Town and Skrill Premier team Nuneaton Town last season. He played one reserve-team match for Fleetwood and two first-team games at Nuneaton.
The former Dandy Town youth product played for Stoke against Newcastle Town in a pre-season friendly this summer.
Eve was rewarded for his impressive performances for Stoke’s Under-21s with a two-year contract earlier this year.
The 6ft 4in goalkeeper became one of the youngest players to play for Bermuda when he appeared as a substitute in a 2-1 win over Barbados in World Cup qualifier in 2011 at the age of 16.
He was recruited by Stoke after impressing their scouts while playing for Derby County’s youth team.
Meanwhile, Rai Simons, the Bermuda striker, scored both goals in Ilkeston Academy’s 4-2 away defeat at Gateshead on Wednesday.
In goal for Ilkeston was Jahquil Hill, the Bermuda Under-20 player, who made a string of fine saves.
Simons also scored in Ilkeston first-team’s 3-1 win in a Derbyshire Senior Cup game away to Heanor last week.
