WARRINGTON Town have moved to bolster their squad ahead of a busy run of games.

The club have confirmed the signing of Stockport County youngster Josh Popoola on a loan deal running until the end of December.

That means the 19-year-old will be available for Yellows’ next six National League North fixtures up to and including the Boxing Day trip to Chester.

A versatile wide player who can play all the way down both flanks, Popoola has already spent loan spells with two of Town’s divisional rivals this season in Spennymoor Town and Chorley.

Indeed, he was an impressive performer against Mark Beesley’s side for Spennymoor during their 3-3 draw at Cantilever Park back in September.

With Jordan Buckley having moved on to re-join FC United of Manchester earlier this week, Beesley is pleased to have replenished his attacking stocks by securing a long-term target.

"We’ve had our eye on him for a while," he said.

"We nearly got him a bit ago – we went to watch him play for Stockport against Salford and he was excellent, probably the best player on the pitch.

"He’s gone to Chorley and been excellent, but he’s not got as many minutes as he would have liked so we’d like to thank Stockport for allowing it to happen.

"We’re really pleased to have got it over the line.

"He’s versatile and that’s what we need. We’ve got versatile forwards – there’s only really Josh Amis that you’d pigeon-hole as a centre-forward but the rest can play in different positions.

2We have to have lads like that within a small squad and he fits the bill for that.

"With losing Jordan, it gives us more attacking options."

Popoola is eligible to make his Warrington debut when league leaders Tamworth visit Cantilever Park tomorrow, although the game is subject to a 10am pitch inspection amid the current freezing temperatures.
