Stanley Academy forward Niall Watson has joined Marine AFC on loan.

Watson, 17, made his Stanley First Team debut at Exeter back in November and also appeared from the bench again at Grimsby in December.

The forward has featured in several of John Coleman’s match day squads and now joins the Evo-Stik Premier Division side to continue his development, making his debut last night against Shaw Lane.

Meanwhile, fellow Academy player Zehn Mohammed has had his loan spell with Ramsbottom United extended by a further month and has also been joined at the club by Stanley team mate, Jack Burgess.

20-year-old defender, Mohammed, will be looking to add to his four starts with the Northern Premier League club.

Accrington Stanley wish all three players the best of luck during their loan spells.
