Newcastle loan duo Lucas De Bolle and Dylan Stephenson have collected silverware with Hamilton. The Accies downed Raith Rovers 1-0 to win the Scottish Challenge Cup. De Bolle played the entire match while Stephenson was an unused substitute.
Regan Tumulty scored the match’s only goal with a strike in the 30th minute. Hamilton had to see out the final 35 minutes after defender Dan O’Reilly picked up a straight red 10 minutes into the second half.
De Bolle recovered from a scary spell early in the campaign where he suffered lingering concussion symptoms. The midfielder has 16 appearances with a goal and an assist during his time at New Douglas Park.
Stephenson joined his Magpies teammate in January. The forward has 8 appearances while also contributing 1 goal and 1 assist. Like De Bolle, he has been utilized in numerous positions by Accies boss John Rankin.
Joe White joined Exeter in January. The midfielder has been a steady presence making 11 appearances for The Grecians. While not an automatic starter, White has featured in every match except one since his arrival.
Goalkeeper Dan Langley swapped Gateshead for Spennymoor Town in January. The local lad had started 12 straight for The Moors before an injury in mid-March has seen him miss the last three matches.
