Ste­wart aims to win league with Skem

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Sport - BY EMMA SAN­DERS

SKELMERS­DALE United are con­tin­u­ing to add new tal­ent to the squad ahead of the new 2017-18 sea­son.

Man­ager Alan Rogers has al­ready in­tro­duced sev­eral new sign­ings as Skem look to bounce back from a dis­ap­point­ing cam­paign.

The club’s lat­est ad­di­tion is young mid­fielder Jack Ste­wart who has joined from League One side Rochdale.

The young­ster be­comes the club’s sixth sign­ing af­ter he was of­fered a con­tract fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful trial pe­riod.

As part of his trial, he fea­tured in the 2-0 de­feat against North­wich Vic­to­ria last week and was im­pres­sive through­out.

Ste­wart has pro­gressed through the youth ranks at Rochdale and was an un­used sub­sti­tute in the first team squad last Novem­ber.

He also fea­tured in the Lan­cashire Se­nior cup semi-fi­nal de­feat against Liver­pool three months ago so he hopes to make a sim­i­larly good im­pres­sion with Skelmers­dale.

On his move to Skem, Ste­wart said: “I am look­ing for­ward to hope­fully win­ning the league and se­cur­ing pro­mo­tion for Skelmers­dale.”

Alan Rogers added: “Jack [Ste­wart] is a fan­tas­tic tal­ent with de­ter­mi­na­tion to learn and im­prove. He will be a huge as­set for us this com­ing sea­son.”
