Hatters extend Wes Fletcher loan deal

Published Add your comment

After two 5-0 batterings in the league and a respectable draw with Peterborough in the FA Cup, it was always going to be interesting to see which Stockport side turned up at Gigg Lane against Bury, thankfully it was a winning one!


A great individual piece of skill from Wes Fletcher gave the Hatters all three points in this local battle and may have surprised a few people as the bookmakers had Stockport as 5/1 outsiders to win the match!


As well as the goal from Wes, County had a chance to double their lead but Jake Simpson's header hit the crossbar.


Stockport also had Matt Glennon to thank as he kept his side in the game with a string of important saves to give his side a morale boosting win.


Young Wes had a double cause for celebration as he will remain with the club for at least another month after both Burnley and Stockport County agreed to the contract extension.


This is the only way forward for the club.


Paul Simpson and his management team will hope and pray that they can hold on to the young man for the remainder of the season as they hope to climb way above the 16th place they currently occupy.


The club has signed Tom Aldred on a two month loan deal from Watford. The young defender was captain of the youth team at Carlisle United and has also represented Scotland at Under 19 level.


As Tom comes in both Jack Saville (who has returned to Southampton on compassionate leave) and Danny Rowe who has joined Northwich Vics on a month's loan, have left Edgeley Park.


All focus now is on the FA Cup replay with Peterborough United after both sides fought out a 1-1 draw at Edgeley Park.


Everyone at the club knows that this will be a tough ask against the League One side but nothing is impossible, as cup upsets throughout the years have shown.


It would be great if County could cause another one and go on a decent cup run to generate some much needed cash for the club and also to put themselves in the spotlight instead of in the shadows of their Premier League neighbours.
