CHERRIES loanee Shaun Hobson has "slipped in seamlessly" to life at Weymouth, according to their boss Mark Molesley.

The defender put pen-to-paper on a season-long loan deal with the Terras on Monday and went straight into their side for Tuesday's National League South clash at Oxford City.

And the 21-year-old completed the full 90 minutes, keeping a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw.

Molesley, who has also worked with Hobson in his role as Cherries under-21s assistant boss, was pleased with the debut display.

He told the Weymouth website: "I was delighted with Shaun Hobson.

"He’s come straight into the team and looks like he’s been here for years.

"He slipped in seamlessly and I thought he was one of our strongest performers.

"I think he was strong aerially and played out really well. Really pleased with that."

Hobson is one of three players on loan at Weymouth from Cherries with Sam Sherring and goalkeeper Calum Ward also part of the squad which are currently sitting 10th in the sixth tier.

Having joined from Burnley in 2016, Hobson has also previously had spells away at Chester, Eastbourne and Eastleigh.
