George Lloyd loves life at Grimsby Town after making the loan switch from Cheltenham Town on January deadline day and has the full backing of the Mariners coaching staff.

The 23-year-old scored his third Town goal in a 1-0 win over League Two cellar club Rochdale at the weekend and has five goal contributions in total in eight starts for Paul’s side. hurst.

It’s fair to say he’s been a crucial addition to the team at a vital time with the league calendar busier than ever due to earlier postponements and the club’s historic FA Cup run.

Lloyd said: “Not being able to play in the FA Cup gives me a bit more time to freshen up for league games compared to others, which has helped somewhat because going from not playing any games (at Cheltenham) to playing every week is a difficult transition.

“I’m quite happy to be involved as much as I am, it’s frustrating not to be able to play in the cup, but I’m looking forward to the lads getting that opportunity. The league schedule is relentless and you can’t think much about the games once they’re gone because soon you’re on to the next one.”

When a player fits well at a loan club, questions often begin to arise about his long-term future and whether he would be the best fit to make a permanent move. Based on his performances so far, he looks like a good fit for Town, but the player himself is focused on making the most of this season.

The Cheltenham loanee said: “We still have eight or nine weeks left in the season and almost double that in games and a lot can happen between now and then, so there’s no point in having discussions with either party about my future.” . . I am enjoying my football at the moment and I continue to do so.
