Hibs currently have 11 players out on loan at clubs in four different countries. While some have already featured in Betfred Cup matches, others had their first taste of competitive action with their new clubs at the weekend. Here’s a look at how the loan Hibees fared...

Jack Brydon – Civil Service Strollers

Brydon started at right-back for Civil Service Strollers as they hosted Kelty Hearts at Christie Gillies Park. Strollers were narrowly beaten 3-2 with Brydon conceding a penalty early in the second half to hand the visitors the lead. He pulled one back with a header from a corner to set up a frantic 15 minutes but the Fifers held on with the hosts having Chris McKee dismissed for a last-man challenge late on.

Josh Campbell – Edinburgh City

Campbell started in central midfield against Brechin and netted the Citizens’ fourth goal in a 5-1 rout, firing in a 20-yard effort that beat Lewis McMinn.

He was replaced on 84 minutes by Michael Cunningham.

Kevin Dabrowski – Dumbarton

The Polish ‘keeper started between the sticks as Dumbarton took on Forfar in League One. The 22-year-old put in a fine performance at Station Park, pulling off an impressive reflex save from John Robertson as Jim Duffy’s side earned a point.

Jayden Fairley – Stenhousemuir

The 17-year-old was brought on for the last three minutes of Stenhousemuir’s 3-1 win against Albion Rovers.

Yrick Gallantes – ADT

The Phillippines’ domestic season starts on October 25 with ADT facing Mendiola United in their opener.

Tom James – Wigan Athletic

The Welsh full-back lined up at left-back in the Latics’ 1-0 loss to Charlton at the Valley in the sixth game of the season.

John Sheridan’s side currently lie 18th in the 24-team League One although they were perhaps unfortunate to come away from SE7 with nothing to show from their efforts.

Fans’ reaction was mixed with some saying James looked better at left-back and others feeling the team would have looked stronger with the 24-year-old at right-back.

Dino Leddie – CD Almunecar City

The Spaniards start their season next weekend when they travel to Granada-based Cullar Vega.

Fraser Murray – Dunfermline Athletic

The midfielder scored a cracking free kick for the Pars during their midweek Betfred Cup meeting with Kilmarnock – one of two goals he scored that night.

On Saturday he was given a 25-minute appearance from the bench against Inverness Caledonian Thistle at East End Park and helped Stevie Crawford's outfit to a 3-1 win.

Innes Murray – Alloa Athletic

Murray was an unused substitute as the Wasps fell to a 1-0 defeat against Morton at Cappielow.

Callum Yeats – Stenhousemuir

Yeats played left-back for Stenhousemuir as they romped to a 3-1 away win against Albion Rovers and came close to keeping a clean sheet with his defensive colleagues until an 87th-minute consolation from the home side.

Connor Young – Civil Service Strollers

Young, who netted a fine goal from distance during a pre-season victory against Whitburn, lined up on the left of an attacking midfield trio for the visit of Kelty Hearts on Saturday.

The Fifers ran out 3-2 winners but Strollers gave a good account of themselves against last season's champions. Young was up against veteran Jamie Stevenson who will have been a stern opponent for the youngster.
