Quakers keen on more Offiong

Last updated : 15 December 2002 By Martyn Elliott

Speaking before Saturday’s Division Three clash with Hull, Darlo caretaker boss Mick Tait said: "Saturday was his second game for us and the players are a little bit more aware of him and what he can do, and play to him in a better fashion. We knew he was an exciting talent and he showed the fans exactly what he can do last weekend.

"He has made quite an impression, but we need to make sure the player is enjoying himself at the club before we think about extending any loan deals. It is something I will discuss with him and Sir Bobby Robson in the near future."

Offiong was on the winning side again on Saturday, as Darlo defeated Hull City (who included another on-loan Newcastle youngster Stuart Green) 1-0 in the last ever game at Boothferry Park.
