Molyneux Returns To Stanley

Molyneux Returns To Stanley

Accrington Stanley have today completed the loan signing of former midfielder Lee Molyneux from Crewe Alexandra.

Our 2012-13 Play of the Year returns to the club he left last summer, on an initial one month loan deal.

Speaking to the Official Site after the deal was announced, Molyneux said he was utterly delighted to be back at the club again as for the 24 year old 'it felt like coming home.'

He explains that he thoroughly enjoyed his time with us last season, and the deciding factor in leaving was simply to go up a level and test himself in League One, if it hadn't have been for that opportunity he would've stayed with us.

'They were special times for me last year. I hope that we can recreate them this season. I've trained this morning with the lads and I believe there's more quality in the squad now as a whole than last season.'

Speaking for himself, gaffer James Beattie said of the returning player that he was delighted to have been able to do a deal for him with his parent club as he was a massive part of our successful battle last campaign and given that it hasn't quite worked out for him at Crewe this season, this gives him a chance to help us out again whilst also getting games and hopefully playing himself into some form.

Molyneux has been handed the No 13 shirt for his stay with us, and if all goes well, it's likely the deal will be extended.
