Myerscough production line rolls on!
Myerscough Football student Alex Meaney has signed a professional contract with Blue Square BET Premier side Stockport County.
The Hatters signed the 19 year old star after a successful season with Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division side Lancaster City, Myerscough College's Premier Academy team. Alex also gained representative honours in 2012 after captaining England Colleges on two International Tours in Europe.
Meaney impressed Hatters bosses after a successful trial spell with the club towards the end of the 2011/2012 season and he will now join former Myerscough teammates, Danny Hattersley and Alex Kenyon, who signed for the club earlier in 2012. All three will hope to follow in the footsteps of another Myerscough star, Anthony Pilkington, who now plays Premier League Football with Norwich City, after starting his professional career with County in 2007.
The Attacking Midfielder from Bolton captained England Colleges (ECFA) at the Caput Mundi Roma Tournament and was selected from 144 of Europe's most talented footballers to receive the ‘Player of the Tournament' award - an honour he received from the president of Lazio Football Association.
Speaking after signing his first professional contract, Alex Meaney said: "Obviously I am delighted to be signing a professional contract with Stockport County and I am looking forward to getting going and helping the club acheive big things. I'd like to thank everybody at Myerscough College who has helped my develpopment as a player during my time there and I leave the College with many fond memories."
