Blue Square Bet North club Droylsden have taken 18-year-old local boy Ryan Hopper on a three-month loan deal from….
…..npower League Two side Accrington Stanley.
The Droylsden born midfielder had to cope with a few set-backs in his early career, having been released by Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers.
He went to Oldham Athletic for a season but didn’t make it until a trial game for Accrington in 2010 ended with a scholarship.
He signed his first professional deal with the club in the summer of 2012 after coming through the youth set-up at the Crown Ground.
A former youth team captain, Hopper, nicknamed `Scholesy`, was thrust into the first-team equation towards the end of the 2011/12 season, making his first appearance in the home game against Oxford United.
A first start against Torquay followed to cap a period that also saw him awarded LFE Apprentice of the Month.
