It was a weekend of mixed fortunes for Norwich City’s operators on loan as Connor Southwell reports.

A plethora of Norwich City's loan exports were in action across the weekend, with Caleb Richards starring in a 6-1 victory for Tampa Bay Rowdies in America as they moved up to third in the USL Championship.

Richards played at centre-back for the Rowdies as they deployed a 3-5-2 formation and comfortably overcame Bethlehem Steel to edge them closer to the summit of the table.

Carlton Morris was involved in the entirety of Rotherham United's 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury Town in League One, with the striker failing to break the deadlock for the Millers in their quest for a Championship return. Morris had a penalty appeal waved away after being judged to have gone down too easily inside the box.

Louis Thompson wasn't in action for Shrewsbury Town as he continues his comeback trail after a limited pre-season meaning he was absent for the trip to Yorkshire.

Elsewhere, James Husband played for Blackpool in their 1-1 draw away at Accrington Stanley, although there is a fear he may have broken his nose in a defensive display that left plenty to be desired. Belgian U21 international Rocky Bushiri was an unused substitute in that game.

Crawley Town's 2-2 draw with Northampton in League Two saw a start for Mason Bloomfield. Predominantly, he has played as a striker but Gabriel Ciofi is utilising his talents in an attacking midfield role.
