Sky Bet League Two side Accrington Stanley have today confirmed on their official website the signing of Luke Wall, the winger who was released by Blackburn Rovers earlier in the summer.
The 19-year-old has agreed a one-year deal at the Wham Stadium, and has the option of another year should things go well for the youngster.
Wall never made a competitive first team appearance for Blackburn, playing mainly for the Under-21 outfit at Ewood Park, but is relishing the opportunity to play in the fourth tier.
He told the official website: ‘It’s important for me to play first team football now.
‘It’s a lot more physical and will be more beneficial than playing Under 21 football. I can play on either wing although I am primarily left-footed.
‘Hopefully, if I get a chance, I can put plenty of crosses in.’
Accrington missed out on automatic promotion last season on the final day of the regular season, and then lost in the play-off semi-finals to eventual winners AFC Wimbledon.
Wall is manager John Coleman’s ninth signing of the summer so far, as the 53-year-old looks to build a squad capable of going one better than last year’s fourth place finish in League Two.
Accrington fans… what do you make of the news? Is Wall a good signing? Can you go one better this year and win promotion? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
