Hill Pleased to Recruit O'Connell

22 July 2013

Jack McConnell became Manager Keith Hill’s latest recruit on Monday afternoon after joining Dale on loan from Championship side Blackburn Rovers, and Hill is pleased to have the 19-year-old on board.

He told : “Jack is a player that I have been keeping my eye on for some time and he brings a good balance to the squad. 

“He’s a strong left footed defender who can play either in the centre of defence or at left back and for me he’s a quality signing. Like every player in this squad, a place in the starting eleven isn’t guaranteed and he is coming here to be competitive and to earn that.

"He’s 19 but the age makes no difference to me; I’m looking for ability and he’s got that. He was excellent on loan for York last season and he has got what it takes to be a future star.”
