Owen Windsor hoping to keep up the goals at Grimsby
Owen Windsor hopes he can take his goalscoring form with West Brom’s Under-23 side into his loan spell at Grimsby.
The 19-year-old has scored five goals in as many matches this season for the Baggies’ Premier League 2 squad but will now spend the rest of the campaign on loan with the Mariners.
“I have started the season well with the Under-23s at West Brom with my goals and performances, which is great for my confidence,” Windsor told Grimsby’s website.
“However, I’m playing here now so that all doesn’t matter if I can’t carry it on with this team.
“Hopefully, I can kick on with Grimsby and keep the goals and performances coming whilst I’m here.”
Grimsby also announced the loan signing of Bristol Rovers winger Kyle Bennett until the end of the season.
The 30-year-old has yet to feature for Rovers this campaign and he is excited to play under boss Ian Holloway.
Bennett said: “I’m happy, it did take a few days to get done but I’m here now and I’m looking forward to getting going.
“The manager is all for it, he’s very passionate about football and passionate about the lads and how you are as a person so he seems like a great manager to work for.”
