FRANKIE Monk has been recalled by Weymouth from his loan spell at Poole Town and shipped out to Bashley for a one-month loan.

Bashley play in Step 4's Southern League Division One South and have previously worked with Monk on loan.

Terras’ boss Bobby Wilkinson confirmed the recall after the attacking midfielder started for the Claret and Blues in the 8-1 defeat by Wimborne Town last Tuesday.

Since joining the Dolphins in October, Monk has scored twice in nine fixtures and started five times.

For Weymouth Under-23s this season, the 20-year-old is goalless in four games, while the youngster has one assist for the Terras’ first team in nine appearances, eight as a substitute.

Speaking to Echosport, Wilkinson said: “Poole Town just didn’t play him in enough games.

“When he went there we were promised he would get more experience and more games. That hasn’t quite worked out.

“I’m glad to have Frankie back. Will I send him out on loan again? It depends if it’s the right club and he gets 90-minute football.”

And that club has been identified as Ollie Cherrett's Bashley, who have a proven track record of developing Weymouth loanees' match fitness and minutes during previous spells for Monk and with ex-Terras midfielder Harvey Slade.

Monk was one of the brighter notes in Weymouth’s loss at Wimborne, with some observers considering the talented attacker unlucky not to have scored.

Monk looked to have made it 2-2 on the night after escaping through the middle and slotting past Magpies’ keeper Ben Rodwell, only for the offside flag to go up despite Weymouth protests.

On Monk’s performance, Wilkinson added: “I thought he lacked a little match fitness but it was still brilliant to get him minutes against a good Step 4 side.”

Weymouth's next match is at home to St Albans City on Tuesday (7.45pm).
