AFC Telford United have completed the loan signing of Lewis Earl from National League side Stockport County.
Earl has just penned a one-year deal at National League Stockport on Monday after leaving former club Preston, and will immediately be loaned out to the New Bucks Head.
The 19 year old is a right-footed defender who can play in the backline or as a defensive midfielder.
Cowan said: “Lewis is versatile, he plays as a defender but also as a midfielder as well, so we are really lucky.
“I’d like to give a real huge thanks to Stockport, who have seen the bigger picture, from a financial perspective they’ve recognised that and allowed us to bring a player of his quality in. It makes our squad even more competitive and gives us strength in depth as well, so we’re really pleased.”
The Bucks boss also confirmed that he remains on hunt for another centre-half after the Bucks were knocked back by several other targets over the last few weeks.
Cowan “We do need that centre-half and a left-sided player as well, we’re hoping to bring in one or two, there’s no panic. I’m happy with the group at the moment and we showed how competitive we can be (on Tuesday), but we’re certainly in the market.”
Everyone at AFC Telford United would like to welcome Lewis to the New Bucks Head.
