AFC Bournemouth: Stockley joins Hargreaves at Torquay on loan deal

Bournemouth Echo: LOAN MOVE: Jayden Stockley LOAN MOVE: Jayden Stockley

CHRIS Hargreaves has wasted no time in utilising his Cherries contacts to make Jayden Stockley his first signing in management.

Hargreaves, who left his post as first team coach at Dean Court to take charge of Torquay United, has drafted in the young striker on loan.

Stockley rejoined the Gulls for a second temporary spell after his first stint with the club had been disrupted by a calf injury.

The homegrown frontman had been with Leyton Orient prior to making the switch to Plainmoor to boost Torquay’s League Two survival chances.

And after making three substitute appearances for Torquay between November 30 and January 1, Cherries confirmed that Stockley had returned to the Gulls on a deal until Saturday, February 8.

Since being fast-tracked by manager Eddie Howe into the senior Cherries set-up, Stockley has experienced fluctuating fortunes. The Poole-born forward was handed his Football League debut by Howe in October 2009 as a 16-year-old. Stockley was subsequently rewarded with a long-term contract but his game-time has been limited.

Meanwhile, Hargreaves has also been linked with a swoop for ex-Dean Court stalwart Shaun Cooper.

Think this is the first on many loans to Torquay. Hey does this mean we are at last big enough to be actually classed as a parent club?

Pleased to see The Cherries are able to loan out Jayden Stockley to the new Torquay manager, our recent 1st team coach. Jayden has not scored very often on his recent travels but under Hargreaves I suspect he will get plenty of game time and a chance to shine. Also a good loan in ex-Cherry Shaun Cooper. Coops is the kind of solid hard working and technically gifted pro. that Chris Hargreaves will need to get them out of the mire.
Well done Cherries, I suspect more will follow to get game time and experience but not too far away that the youngsters will feel too homesick. UTC.

All the best to Jayden and Torquay. Hope he can do for the Gulls what Supa did for us when we were in the same position a few seasons back.
