STOCKPORT County have boosted their squad with the arrival of Max Hazeldine on a month’s youth loan from League Two side Accrington Stanley.
The 18-year-old from Stockport trained with Neil Young’s side on Thursday and goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s National League North game against Brackley Town.
Hazeldine made his league debut for Stanley last season against Dagenham and Redbridge.
The move comes after Everton decided to recall Calum Dyson from this youth loan earlier this week. The striker scored three goals in his month long spell at the Hatters.
Hazeldine explained how the move came about to the official Accrington Stanley website: “The gaffer (John Coleman) called me into his office and told me I’d been doing well in training and that Stockport’s manager had watched me in a training game we’d had and that they wanted to give me the opportunity to go out and get a few games for a month.
“I’m from just up the road and used to watch Stockport as a young lad so it’s a good move for me.”
John Coleman said: “Max has been on fire in training recently and this is a great chance for him to take the next step. There’s no substitute for first team experience and hopefully this month will give him that. It’s a good situation for everyone.”
