Gleeson Prepares To Sign Off

Posted on: Fri 02 Feb 2007

  Stephen Gleeson will play his last game for Stockport when the team travel to Hereford tomorrow.

  The 18-year-old Academy graduate has been on loan at Edgeley Park for three months and has been told to come back to Molineux and fight for a first team place.

  Gleeson has won rave reviews for his performances at the League Two club. The midfielder has made 13 appearances in the League, scoring two goals, plus three FA Cup starts.

  Country have won their last four games on the spin and now find themselves in the play-off positions.

  "Stephen has been away from Molineux for three months but during that time Chris Evans and Bobby Mimms have been to watch him," says manager Mick McCarthy.


  "He'll come back to Compton on Monday to be part of the first team squad.

  "He's had his crack at first team football and, by all accounts, done well. But this is his club and he wants to come back here and prove himself.

  "He's a good player and no doubt we will see an improvement in him."

  Meanwhile, Wayne Hennessey, also on loan at Stockport, is likely to be staying at the Cheshire club.

  The 19-year-old keeper joined County on loan three weeks ago and Wolves are prepared to extend this up to the allowed 93 days if requested. The club will, however, have a 24 hour recall option.

  Wayne, who went straight into the Stockport team, has played in the last four games and kept four clean sheets.
