Shaun Whalley

Witton Albion FC have agreed to the transfer of Shaun Whalley to Accrington Stanley FC for an undisclosed fee. Initially Shaun will go to Accrington on loan until their Football League transfer window opens in January 2007, at which time he will become a registered player with Accrington. The deal is of mutual benefit to both WAFC & Shaun Whalley and when Shaun leaves us it is with our best wishes for, what is hoped, is a long and successful career in League football.<br>WAFC have also included a sell-on clause should any subsequent monetary transfer take place.<br><br>GE<br>

Best of luck shaun you deserve it! Sad to see you go but much better opporutnities at accrington stanley at least it will be more money coming in to the club if you look on the bright side ;D

All the best to Shaun, lets hope he makes it in league football.

Yes the very best of luck Shaun, he definitely has the talent to play in the Football League.<br><br>Also hats off to Jim and Benny, who have brought an unknown player to the club, developed him and as importantly brought revenue into the club.<br><br>Lets hope the money provided means we can keep the rest of the squad together for a promotion challenge.

Gutted, but happy is that sad ???

shame to lose him, quality wingers are hard to come by but we do have two others in gaghan an peers to step in. Good business for the club especially the sell on clause. looking foward to when chelsea sign him for 20mill.

Its good news for the club, hopefully it will go a long way to ensuring the squad stays together for the season.

Just shows how far we have come when we start selling players to league clubs and have already in the team players ready to step straight into the position, best of luck to Shaun fingers crossed that he is spotted by Chelsea and they pay accrington 20million for him ;D

Good business as it should help keep the rest of the team at Witton until we win promotion at the end of the season. If we had kept him we might have won the league but it is unfair to hold young players back.<br>WHS

am i to understand that if it doesnt go well in his loan period he could come back.

No dont think so, its a technicality, he cant sign for Accrington because of the transfer window, so its a loan until he can sign for them but hes gone really. :cry:

Found this brief report and it also said Shaun could be in line for a call up on saturday;<br><br>Stanley reserves lost by a single goal to Rochdale Reserves at Rossendale United’s Dark Lane ground last night, however there were encouraging performances from new signings Leighton McGivern and Shaun Whalley. Shaun got two goals, with Andy Mangan also getting on the score sheet in an exciting display of attacking football from both sides. <br>

Shaun made his debut for Accrington in the home defeat against Hartlepool on Saturday as a substitute, he played the last 15 minutes.

This is good news. Great for the lad and perhaps great for Witton for if he does really well a more senior club than Accrington may come in for him. With the sell on clause we may make even more money.<br>WHS

Shaun was in the news last night as Accrington took on Doncaster Rovers in the Northern Section Quarter Final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.<br><br>Given a straight red card for a challenge after 50 minutes. ?It was shown on sky sports news and it didn’t look good.

He’d played 90 minutes on saturday, earning a yellow card! They’ll be sending him back in Jan at this rate!!!<br>He’d after to be content with a place on the bench though coz that boy Chris Gaghan is on fire!!

Looks like he means business though, he obviously is not holding back.<br>WHS

Reading the match reports from the Accrington v Mansfield game, Shaun appeared to be very much involved during the early stages of the game.<br><br>It was a foul on him that brought about the penalty with which Accrington took the lead, only for Mansfield to equalise and the game was abandoned at half time.

Let us hope Chelsea come in with a multi-million pound offer for the lad.<br>WHS.
