Time for Stockley to Shine

Time for Stockley to Shine

Cherries manager, Eddie Howe, has revealed that young striker Jayden Stockley, will get an opportunity to impress in pre-season.

Since making his debut as a 16 year-old, the Poole-born forward has not really established himself within the squad, whilst being burgeoned with a large reputation, which arguably was unfairly built for a player so young. He currently has 2 AFCB goals to his name from 2 starts and 20 substitute appearances.

Last season he spent the majority of his time on-loan at Woking, having been demoted to the Development squad by Paul Groves. Whilst away he scored 14 goals for the Conference side.

Howe has now said he is willing to give Stockley a chance to play his part in the AFCB journey, but he must prove himself when given a substantial amount of game-time in pre-season. As he told Daily Echo:

'Jayden did very well at Woking and I think he has done well whenever he has been out on loan. It was a good time for him to go out on loan - he needed to play - and Woking was good for him and vice-versa. He now comes back into our thoughts and back into our group for pre-season. He will be with us for all of pre-season. He is someone that we have always liked, ever since I saw him as a 15-year-old, but now it is very much up to Jayden to perform and impress to see what the next step is for him. It may well be out on loan, it may well be closer to us. It will all depend on Jayden.'
