Rams Youngsters Go Out On Loan
Derby County youngsters Aaron Cole and Ryan Connolly have gone out on loan to gain some valuable first team experience. Cole, a first year professional, has joined Eastwood Town on a month`s deal and will join teammate James Severn who joined the Blue Square North side on a half-season loan deal last month.
Connolly is currently in the second year of his first professional contract after having missed a large portion of last year with a cruciate ligament injury. The Republic of International youth international made his first team debut on the final day of the 2009/10 season against Cardiff City just days before signing his first contract. Connolly has joined Scottish First Division side Ayr United on loan until the end of December with Nigel Clough telling dcfc.co.uk:
'It will be a good experience for Ryan to go out and play games regularly, especially after being out for so long last season.'
