Tom Aldred joins on loan

Motherwell Football Club are delighted to announce the loan signing of Tom Aldred from Bury.

The central defender has joined until the end of the 2017/18 campaign and will boost the defensive options available to manager Stephen Robinson.

Aldred has previous experience of playing in the Scottish top flight with Inverness CT and has also been capped at youth level in this country.

“I am really looking forward to it, to getting my head down, working hard and being the best I can be for the football club,” he said on his arrival.

Playing in the Scottish Premiership was something I was really interested in. I’m looking forward to getting going.

The 27-year-old started his career with Carlisle United in 2008, before a move to Watford two years later.

After loan spells with Stockport County and Inverness CT, Aldred moved on to Colchester United, with further temporary stints at Torquay United and Barrow.

Regular games followed in 2012 after a move to Accrington Stanley, where he made 94 appearances before a move to the English Championship with Blackpool.

A regular with the Seasiders over the course of three seasons, the towering defender was their captain as they won the League Two play-off final last campaign.

A move to Bury followed in the summer under former Kilmarnock boss Lee Clark, where he made 23 appearances this season before the switch to Fir Park.

“We were clear from the start of the January window we were looking to increase our options in central defence.” manager Robinson said of his signing.

“Tom ticks that box and arrives at the club with plenty experience under his belt.

“We tried to get him in the summer, so we are delighted to finally have him at Motherwell.”
