Loan watch: See how Swans players got on
8th August 2016
Seven of the Swans' nine players out on loan were in action over the weekend.
Josh Vickers made his first appearance in the top four divisions when he featured in Barnet's 1-1 draw at Cambridge United in League Two.
Vickers, on loan with the Bees for the remainder of the season, played the full game as the visitors claimed a point thanks to a 75th minute equaliser.
In the Championship, Kyle Bartley and Matt Grimes both started as Leeds made a losing start to their campaign.
Former Swans boss Garry Monk handed the pair their Leeds debuts as his new side went down 3-0 at QPR.
Bartley played the full 90 minutes while Grimes was replaced just past the hour mark.
Leeds will look to bounce back from that setback when they visit Fleetwood in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
Fleetwood provided the opposition for Northampton, for whom Kenji Gorre made his debut.
The winger featured for 77 minutes in a bright display for the Cobblers, who had taken a ninth-minute lead.
Gorre went close to doubling the lead, but he fired a volley over from six yards just before the break.
Northampton were forced to settle for a share of the spoils when Fleetwood levelled seven minutes into the second half.
Next for Northampton is an EFL Cup trip to Barnsley on Tuesday.
Staying in League One, Adam King came off the bench as Southend suffered an opening-day defeat to Gillingham.
The young Scot played for the final 13 minutes as the Shrimpers went down 3-1, despite taking an early lead.
Southend will look to gain revenge on Tuesday when they again host Gillingham, this time in the EFL Cup.
Both Liam Shephard and Ryan Hedges played the full 90 minutes as Yeovil made a promising start to their League Two campaign.
Hedges played a key role in the Glovers' second goal as Darren Way's side saw off Notts County 2-0.
Yeovil visit Walsall in the EFL Cup on Tuesday looking to build on their good start to the season.
In Scotland, Oliver Davies was an unused substitute as Kilmarnock were beaten 2-1 by Motherwell in their opening Scottish Premiership encounter.
Davies has, meanwhile, made his first senior appearances recently for Killie in their Scottish League Cup ties against Berwick and Alloa.
They beat Berwick 3-2 after trailing 2-0 while they exited the competition after losing to Alloa following a penalty shootout with the game ending 0-0 in normal time.
Meanwhile, Bafe Gomis has featured in Marseille's preparations for the Ligue 1 season, with the striker appearing in the 2-1 win over Girona and 1-1 draw with Palermo.
