ANDY Marshall has turned down a loan move to Plymouth Argyle, writes Derek Davis.

Transfer-listed Marshall conceded four first-half goals, one from the penalty spot, a free-kick and two from poor defending against a strong Chelsea side, which included Robert Huth and Neil Sullivan, at Aldershot FC's Recreation Ground, last night.

Town fielded an extremely young side, apart from the transfer-listed Marshall, and were given a first-half lesson by a rampant Chelsea.

Steve McCall changed the formation at half-time going with one lone striker and beefing up the midfield and the young Blues held firm in the second 45 minutes.
