Cambridge United striker Andy Dallas extends Weymouth loan


Dallas, on loan from Sky Bet League Two leaders Cambridge United, will now stay at Bob Lucas Stadium until April 24.

This means that the sniper, author of four goals in one month, can play 15 other matches with the Terras.

Former Rangers youngster Dallas could play his last game at Hartlepool United, continuing the promotion.

Weymouth manager Brian Stock is delighted to once again secure the services of the Scotsman.

“He brought a different dimension to our game,” he told Echosport.

“When we look at the players who are running behind, have pace and can hold the ball, he brought a different dimension to the team.

“You look at the way he plays on the shoulder and has the pace to burn, it makes the midfielder or the defense play balls over it which in turn stretched the teams and was able to make us to play.

“When you’re up against the beat defenders are afraid of it.

“Although he scored four goals, he brought a lot more in terms of overall performance.”

“You look at the training we have had, with Josh McQuoid playing against him, he does a lot of selfless racing.

“Sometimes there were a show or two where we asked a lot of Andy. He has an indefatigable pace of work.

Key to the deal was the form of Cambridge strikers Paul Mullin (20) – League Two’s top scorer – and Joe Ironside (11) who scored 31 goals between them to keep Dallas on the sidelines.

Stock added: “Andy is happy, he loves his football and Cambridge is happy.

“Since signing for this club, his attitude has been perfect.

“It was unfortunate to be behind two forwards who were in good shape.

“For Andy, he wants to stay as long as possible but they want a 24 hour callback.”

Dallas could lead the line against Solihull Moors when the Terras entertain the Midlanders in National League action from Vanarama on Saturday (3pm).
