Maidstone United forward Jamar Loza facing uncertain future after Woking loan move

By Craig Tucker

Jamar Loza doesn't know if he'll play for Maidstone again after growing frustrated with his lack of action.

Forward Loza has joined National South Woking on loan for three months after telling the Stones he wanted to leave.

He said: "I was getting a bit frustrated with not getting the game time and I think this is an important year for me to try and kick on.

"So far I’m enjoying it at Woking and if it continues how it is I’d be more than willing to stay for the season.

"That’s how I feel at the minute. If things are going well I don’t see why not.

"I’m not going to want to come back if I’m flying but anything could happen.

"Maidstone may call me back anyway and I’ll have to come back.

"In that case I’ll be more than happy to help the club, whether it’s fighting relegation, pushing for the play-offs, whatever it is."

Loza was a key man under former Stones boss Jay Saunders but started only one game under new manager Harry Wheeler.

The Jamaica international doesn't feel he's been given a chance.

He said: "I thought before the new manager came in I was starting to find my feet and starting to play well.

"It's a shame I didn’t really get the chance to prove to him that I could play now.

"That’s football, that’s how it goes, I understand.

"Every manager has their style.

"Since I’ve been in non-league I’ve been playing under Jay and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.

"The new manager is a bit different to be fair.

"At the minute it is difficult for me because he’s not really playing with wingers and that’s where I predominantly play.

"I think you adapt, so if I was given a chance I’m sure I could play under him.

"It might just be a case where I’m not sure he really rates me as a player.

"I’m not sure he could make that judgement yet because he hasn’t really seen me.

"I do love to work hard for the team and grind out results but I want to have freedom to do my stuff and be imaginative and be off the cuff."

Wheeler isn't ruling out a return for Loza.

He said: "He asked if he could go and play minutes and we said yes.

"He needs that and hopefully that will come back to either help us or help him in the future.

"Maybe he just needs to play regular games to build his confidence and his game play and then we'll readdress it."
