Exeter City have confirmed that 22-year-old AFC Bournemouth striker Jayden Stockley has joined on loan until the end of the season. He’ll be in the squad that will travel to Morecambe for tomorrow’s game.
He played against Exeter for Portsmouth back in September in a league 2 fixture at Fratton Park. City came away 2-1 winners in that game. He’s also had loans with Luton, Cambridge Utd, Torquay Utd, Leyton Orient, Woking and Accrington.
Jayden Stockley speaking of his loan move said:-
I’m really looking forward to getting started here. It’s been great to get the loan sorted, and now that I’m signed until the end of the season, it’s good to be able to focus on the football.
It was probably about a week ago that this started to fall into place – things move very fast in these situations, and in that time I’ve moved down, moved my family across and sorted out a place to stay. I’m really excited to be here, and I just want to get started now.
The manager sold the club very well to me, and the style of football that we play here. I’ve come up against Exeter City already this season while with Portsmouth, and they were really impressive. It’s a team that I wanted to be a part of, and one that I wanted to see do very well. They beat us at Fratton Park, and the lads were really impressed with how they played.
As a striker, I’m hoping to bring some goals and some good play to the squad. I really want to contribute to this good footballing team, and hopefully bring a physical presence as well; as someone who will link up well and bring the best out of other players.
Jayden will wear the number 33 shirt. He played in the first round of the FA Cup for Portsmouth so will not be eligible for Exeter’s replay at Anfield.
