Charlie Jolley is excited for a 'new challenge' at Tranmere Rovers after he signed a permanent transfer from Wigan Athletic on Monday.
The 20-year-old forward, who came through the Latics’ academy system, becomes Rovers’ second recruit in the last week following on from Nya Kirby’s arrival.
Liverpool-born Jolley links up with his new team-mates and he provides another attacking option for manager Keith Hill.
“It’s a new challenge for me and now, I’m looking forward to getting going and hopefully I can score some goals,” Jolley said.
“The Club is on the up. You see our form in the league, and the type of football that they play, I think it would suit me perfectly. I spoke to a couple of people that I know here, and it just seemed right.
“I think the type of player that I am, I like high-energy football and you see the lads give their all so I am definitely looking forward to getting my chance and hopefully making a mark.
“I’ve played a few games for Wigan now and I can’t wait to kick on and play some more games for Tranmere.
“I know how big this Club is, and I can’t wait to have the fans back and play in front of them.”
Jolley says a key factor in his decision to join TRFC was influenced by Hill’s record in developing young players, while he is also looking forward to learning from the senior squad members.
He added: “I’m here to develop as a footballer and the manager has a track record and good things have come from his clubs, so hopefully we can do the same here.
“You see James Vaughan and Jay Spearing. James Vaughan was at Wigan when I was there and you see the type of player that he is, and Jay has played for Liverpool and has had a good career. Peter Clarke has played 800 plus games so as a young player, it is good to come and learn from these type of players.
