Dallas to Weymouth

Striker leaves the Abbey on a one month loan deal – but this is probably the last we’ll see of him.

Andy Dallas is the latest United player to exit, following the move of Harry Darling to MK Dons last night. Signed by Colin Calderwood from Rangers after scoring against us in a friendly, Dallas has found opportunities hard to come by at the Abbey, and moves on in search of regular football.

If we’re honest, Dallas has never really gelled here, which is something we’ve discussed on podcasts and on this site previously, whilst many fans think he didn’t get the chance he deserved, many of us thought he was out of his depth in League Two.

A move to Weymouth may be what’s needed to rejuvenate his career, and at a lower level he may find it easier to come by the minutes and goals he needs to earn a move away from the Abbey. Although he’s only on loan at Weymouth for a month, we’ll be surprised if (COVID permitting) they don’t extend the loan for the rest of the season, a clear sign that Bonner is looking to replace him in the squad.

With perennial fan favourite Kwesi Appiah currently injured in India, the rumour mill tells us a move for Reading’s Sam Smith could be on the cards, which would be well received by fans,.
