Diamonds loan Jags midfielder Ben
We are delighted to announce the signing of Partick Thistle midfielder Ben Stanway, who joins on loan until the end of the season subject to SFA approval.
18-year-old Ben, a box-to-box midfielder, has already made a handful of appearances for the Jags first-team, and joins the Diamonds hoping to build on that experience.
He told airdriefc.com: “I’m looking forward to getting started. I’ve come on a few times for Partick Thistle - obviously it was tough games, but it’s a learning curve and it’s experience, and that’s what I’m here for as well.
“It’s a great bunch of boys, they’ve been dead welcoming. The gaffer as well… it’s been easy to come into.”
And manager Rhys McCabe added: “We watched a few of Ben’s games earlier in the season, he’s a good young player who’s doing really well at Partick.
“We had the opportunity to get him in and get him involved with our squad, and I think he’ll contribute and learn from the quality players that we have in that area.”
We would like to thank Ian McCall and everyone at Partick Thistle for their help in making the move possible.
Welcome to the Diamonds, Ben!
