Kevin Horlock, manager of Pitching In Southern League Premier Division Central club Needham Market brought in winger Kaan Bennett on an initial month’s loan from League Two side Colchester United.

The 18-year-old made his debut for the Marketmen in Saturday’s home defeat to league rivals Stourbridge in the Third Qualifying Round of the Isuzu FA Trophy.

The winger or forward, whose full first name is Taykaan, impressed at the north Essex club last season, scoring 13 goals for their under-23s side.

It led to then U’s manager Wayne Brown rewarding him with his League debut on the final day of their League Two campaign, Bennett coming on as a 61st-minute substitute in a 2-0 victory at Hartlepool United.

His senior debut came aged 17 years and 249 days.
