Stockley makes Woking loan move
AFC Bournemouth youngster Jayden Stockley has joined Conference Premier side Woking on loan until January.
19 year old Stockley, who has been sponsored by AFCB Vital
since his youth team days has struggled for match time over the past eight months.
Last season he scored his first goals for the Cherries, scoring two goals as a 60 minute substitute against Hereford in the Football League trophy and went on to enjoy a loan spell with League Two side Accrington Stanley, scoring three goals from ten appearances (six starts).
He returned to Dean Court and was later rewarded with his first Football League start against Oldham in former manager Lee Bradbury`s final game in charge of the club.
Under former manager Paul Groves however Stockley failed to feature and this season was moved into the clubs new development squad, where he scored a number of goals during a run of games in August.
But in recent months regular games have been lacking for Stockley and new manager Eddie Howe, who initially gave him his debut in professional football at the age of 16 hopes that he can get regular football during his loan period.
Howe told the Daily Echo
... "Jayden needs to play some football. With the size of our squad, it has been difficult to see him much either in training or in games. But he is someone we still hold in high regard..."
"...We have got good links with Woking and Jason (Tindall) has a good relationship with their manager Garry Hill from his Weymouth days. That is how the move came about.
"I think it will be a good move for him. It is a good level and it will definitely develop his game. He is still young and needs to be playing so, hopefully, he can go there and do that."
