We are delighted to announce the loan signing of Matty Daly.
The midfielder joins us on loan from Huddersfield Town.
Matty hails from Stockport and joined Town's Academy from Everton as an Under-15 player.
An attacking midfielder who usually plays in one of the wide positions behind the striker, he featured for Town's Under-18s regularly towards the end of his Under-16 season, netting five goals in 11 starts and three substitute appearances.
As a first year scholar, Matty has enjoyed a superb year. He quickly progressed from the Under-18 to the Under-23 side at Club level.
Daly has also been impressing on the international stage and was a key figure for England as the Young Lions were beaten in the U17 European Championship Semi-Finals. Matty has scored one goal in 10 appearances for his country.
The midfielder has 10 club appearances for the Huddersfield first team with one goal.
Daly spoke about his new loan move:
It is an exciting move for me. I have never really had the opportunity to go out there and get a good loan spell under my belt. This club seemed like the right fit for me and I can't wait to get going.
Dave Challinor added:
We are delighted to get Matty in. He has never had the chance to have a proper loan spell and he comes into this squad with the capabilities to have a really good season. We probably don't have too many players who can hit that magic pass and he certainly ticks them boxes.
