CAMERON McGilp could be swiftly pulled from Hungerford Town’s squad, with Swindon Town boss Richie Wellens keen to grant his promising midfielder minutes at a higher level.

McGilp, 21, linked up with the National League South outfit on October 19 after the Crusaders agreed a one-month loan deal.

The Australian-raised midfielder has made a big impression at Bulpit Lane, featuring in all three of Hungerford’s league fixtures since his loan move was confirmed.

From games against Concord Rangers, Hampton & Richmond Borough and Braintree Town, Ian Herring’s side have registered six points – a return that has ultimately lifted the Berkshire club out of the division’s relegation frame.

And McGilp has played his part in that achievement after scoring twice in last week’s 3-0 win at Braintree.

But Swindon boss Wellens knows the ex-Birmingham City man should be playing at a higher level and will be on the lookout for interested National League clubs that could aid McGilp’s development.

“I expect Cameron to be scoring goals for Hungerford. He should be playing a higher level than National League South,” said Wellens.

“But, at this moment in time, they were the only club showing interest.

“I think once he has played another couple of games – and depending on our situation and what we’ve got available – we’ll try to move him up a level.”

Of Wellens’ other players that have moved out on loan, Luke Haines has made a strong impression at Chippenham Town.

The defender, who can also play in midfield, has featured regularly under Mark Collier this term, and this weekend will face League Two outfit Northampton Town in the FA Cup first round.

It’s unlikely that Wellens will watch the teenager live on Sunday.

Instead, the Town boss will head to Bristol Rovers for their Cup tie against Bromley.

Wellens confirmed to the Adver his interest in that game isn’t to do with next week’s EFL Trophy visit to the Memorial Stadium.

He said: “Luke Haines has been one of the highlights of the younger lads going on loan. He’s done a great job and I’m looking forward to him playing against Northampton.

“That will be a good test for him. When I let him go to Chippenham, I expected him to do well.

“Now he will be playing against opposition in our league, so it will be a good gauge for us."

Elsewhere, no dialogue between Swindon and National League club Chesterfield has been recorded over a possible permanent deal for Jermaine McGlashan.

The winger has made 11 appearances while on loan at the Spireites this season.
