CONCORD Rangers first team coach Darren Beale feels that building relationships with Football League clubs is invaluable when plying your trade in the National League South.

The Beach Boys reaped the benefits of the loan market by adding promising Charlton Athletic youngsters Taylor Maloney and Mikhail Kennedy to the squad last month.

And Beale feels the temporary switches are ideal for both sides.

“We haven’t got the biggest of budgets compared to some other clubs in the division,” said Beale.

“While some other teams might be able to go out and get players on a regular basis, we’re not in a position to do that.

“The loan signings of Taylor and Mikhail are ideal for Charlton and us because we are doing them a favour by giving their young players minutes in men’s football, while they are also giving us more options.

“Clubs like Charlton know how (player-manager) Sammy (Moore) likes to play and so they’re happy for their players to develop with us.

“We are really appreciative of Charlton, but there are other clubs that are close to.

“Neil Harris, the Millwall manager, has been good to us in the past and we also have a good relationship with Barnet.

“Those relationships go a long way at our level.”

Kennedy, 22, made his debut by coming off the bench in Concord’s 3-0 win over Weston-super-Mare at the weekend.

And Beale says the 22-year-old Northern Irishman has settled in well.

“Taylor and Mikhail are training on a full-time basis with Charlton but they come and train with us every Tuesday and Thursday,” added the Beach Boys’ first team coach.

“I know Taylor has been with us for a bit longer but it’s like they have both been with us all season because they have settled in well.

“Taylor is doing really well and Mikhail is just getting to know the group.

“I’m pleased with their attitude and we are pleased to have brought them to the club.”
