Young Stanley striker James Jenkins has joined Evo Stik League side Padiham on loan.

The 18-year-old moves to the Arbories on an initial month’s deal.

The youth team product was handed his first professional contract this summer after playing his part in the under 18s successful Youth Cup campaign last season.

He played an active part in pre-season and now moves the short distance to Padiham to get some invaluable experience.

Everyone at the club wishes him all the best with his temporary switch.
