Seagulls gaffer, Marc McGregor, has taken the opportunity to add strength to the squad, with his sights still on a top seven place and with a place in the promotion play offs, “It is great to add numbers to our squad as we are a little low currently but we are pleased with the quality that we have within the group, although with the final run in to the end of the season upon us we can always look to improve to try and reach our targets”
Since joining the Seagulls at the start of February, Kenan Dunnwald has started five games for the club, notching up two assists in his opening two games and netting his first senior goal in English football in Weston’s last fixture, a 1-2 win away at Eastbourne Borough. Kenan has extended his time at the Woodspring stadium a further month.
Additionally Kenan will be joined by fellow pirate Mohammad Baghdadi. Mo is a German winger, who joined Bristol Rovers in their development squad shakeup last summer, signing from Eintracht Braunschweig. Earlier this season, in October, he joined Dorchester Town on loan, scoring seven goals in 14 games for the Dorset outfit.
In January, the 21 year-old left winger signed for fellow National League South side Poole Town on a two-month loan deal, featuring seven times, claiming one goal and one assist in that period. Baghdadi is also capable at filling in at left-back, but is primarily a left-sided winger.
Mo spoke ahead of his first game in a Weston shirt, “I am really happy to be joining the Seagulls for this month long loan spell. I like the style of football that the gaffer has them playing and I look forward to contributing towards their efforts in the National League South.”
Aaron Parsons has also committed to the club to remain on load for the duration of the season, and including the playoff places, should Weston finish in seventh position or better. The young defender, on loan from Bristol City, replaced Harvey Smith at the end of January. To date he has started six times for Weston, along with making one appearance from the bench, and has featured in three wins, three losses and one draw so far. When asked about his time so far at the Woodspring, Aaron replied, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far with Weston. It has been great getting a tase for the competitiveness of men’s first team football, and along with this seeing the other side of the game that I hadn’t previously experienced before now. I am now looking forward to helping the squad finish the season strongly, and maybe even finishing in a playoff place in the league table.”
