WARRINGTON Town have “a very, very good footballer” on their hands in the shape of new signing Stefan Mols.

The 22-year-old Spaniard became the latest addition to Paul Carden’s squad on Tuesday to bolster their midfield ranks.

Luke Griffiths and Matty McDonald are both struggling with injuries, Jay Harris is managing a thigh issue and Sean Williams’ loan deal is set to expire soon although Yellows are keen to extend the agreement.

As such, the arrival of Mols – an unused substitute during Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Nantwich Town – adds much-needed depth.

Mols has spent the past four seasons in the youth system at Blackburn Rovers and featured regularly for the club’s under 23s before being released in the summer.

He has spent time training with the likes of Salford City but once he adjusts to life at Cantilever Park, Carden is backing him to be a useful acquisition

“I’ve known Stefan a long time from when I was at Blackburn,” he said.

“He was a key player in the age groups and got his pro deal, but where Blackburn are now is maybe a stretch too far.

“He’s played a lot of 23s football – probably more than he should have. He should have gone and got more game time on loans.

“He’s been training with us, he’s been at Salford and other clubs full time and he needs a chance.

“He’s done the right thing by coming. It’s going to take him a little bit of time to get into it because he’s not played any football since April, but I know we’ve got a more than capable player.

“It’s just about getting him adjusted to men’s football and part-time football because he’s a very, very good footballer.”
