Accrington Stanley have loaned defender Reagan Ogle to Southport for an initial one-month period.
The 19-year old Australian impressed Southport boss Liam Watson when he played against Southport in a pre-season friendly for Accrington this summer, and now makes the short switch to the National league North side.
Full back Ogle joined John Coleman’s side in 2015 as a scholar and made his league debut after coming on as a substitute in the final home game of the 2016/17 League Two season against Luton.
he featured six times last season, three appearances coming in the group stages of the Checkatrade trophy and the other three from the bench in league matches against Yeovil, Carlisle and Morecambe.
This switch follows on from six months he spent at Wealdstone in the second part of last season. He’s also been with Ramsbottom where he played four times and he had a trial with Stoke City in 2017.
I think this is a classic example of a young player struggling to make the grade at his parent club.
Accrington are settling into League One life very well, but Ogle struggled to have an impact in League Two. They’ll be hoping he comes on quickly at Southport, but if he doesn’t he could find himself trailing around the non-league scene on a more permanent basis very soon.
