Mutch and Taylor Loans Expire

Mutch and Taylor Loans Expire

Today`s game against Scunthorpe was the final game for loan pair Jordon Mutch and Andrew Taylor at Vicarage Road. The duo will both return to their parent clubs on January 5th after completing their half-season loans at Vicarage Road.

Due to circumstances at their respective clubs both players will not return to WD18 immediately as Mutch is out of contract at Birmingham - and apparently a target for West Ham, whilst Andrew Taylor has seen Tony Mowbray replace Gordon Strachan at Middlesbrough who had previously frozen the Hartlepool-born full-back out at the Riverside.

Mutch initially joined the Hornet`s on a one-month loan back in August and after just a couple of games Malky Mackay saw fit to extend the rangy midfielder`s loan until January. Mutch has added some real legs in midfield alongside Don Cowie and Will Buckley and a good-range of passing as well as an impressive five goals from midfield.

In total the former Derby County schoolboy made 21 league starts for the Goldenboys and a further two appearances from the bench - his debut in the 2-2 draw against Coventry at home from the bench - scoring on five occasions in Yellow.

Andrew Taylor was signed on a six month loan from Middlesbrough where he had been frozen out in time for the 2-2 draw with Doncaster Rovers at the Vic`.

Sadly injury against Scunthorpe United was his last action as Goldeboy having only 48 hours before scored a memorable first career goal in the live on TV drubbing of Portsmouth. Taking his opportunity first-time the F.A Youth cup winner and England U21 cap volleyed straight into the top corner from the edge of the area on his trusty left peg.

A sweet left foot and real stability were what Andrew Taylor brought to Vicarage Road in his 18 league starts as a Hornet.

Best of luck to both Jordon and Andrew in the future and hopefully they`ll be Goldeboys again soon!
