Sean Maguire joins Accrington Stanley



Hammer Sean Maguire has joined league two Accrington Stanley on loan.

The 20-year-old Academy player spent a successful spell under the tutelage of John Coleman and Jimmy Bell at Sligo Rovers in his native Ireland last season and will now spend an initial month in East Lancashire.

Sean said “I saw that John and Jimmy had got the job at Accrington and I was called in after training at West Ham and they said that John and Jimmy wanted to take me on loan, as soon as I found out I was really excited and I wanted to come straight up here because I know that this is a great club with a good history. I’m really happy to be here now.”.

Talking to Accrington Stanley’s website he said: “The plan is to make an impact and score a few goals and get a few assists to get the club up the table, I’ve worked with John and Jimmy at Sligo and I have a good relationship with them so I’m really excited to be working with them again.”

Maguire could be involved at Northampton tomorrow subject to Football League and Premier League ratification.
