Accrington Stanley boss couldn't block Mahoney's Blackburn Rovers move

This Is Lancashire: James Beattie James Beattie

ACCRINGTON Stanley boss James Beattie believes Connor Mahoney could have a big future at Blackburn Rovers, after admitting he could not stand in the way of the 16-year-old’s dream move.

Mahoney has already made six first-team appearances for Stanley and Beattie says the highly-rated winger would have played more regularly, had the Reds not been battling their way out of the League Two relegation zone.

But the talented teenager is now set to join Rovers after a deal was agreed, and the Stanley manager had no intention of blocking a move to the club that Mahoney supported.

Beattie, too, grew up as a Rovers fan and played for the club as a youngster, but he once suffered the frustration of seeing a move blocked when he wanted to join Fulham from Stoke.

“As manager I don’t think I’d stand in any young player’s way because being a player I’ve had that done to myself and I knew how I felt,” Beattie said.

“Connor’s a Blackburn lad and he supports Blackburn.

“He can go as far as he wants to go. He’s a sensible lad, he’s got a huge potential.

“I spoke to Gary Bowyer (Rovers boss) and Eric Kinder (Rovers’ under 21 boss) and said to them that he will go in as probably their best under 21 player, even though he’s 16.

“Some people might laugh at that, but some of their under 21 players probably couldn’t come and play league football, whereas Connor’s played league football at 16 and he’s dealt with it and shown what a good player he is.

“Even though he’s only had bit parts to play, if we’d been on a better run and been in mid-table, Connor would have been playing for us, I’d have had no doubts whatsoever to put him in.

“Some of our boys stood off him in training because they didn’t want to be made a fool of.

“They didn’t want to be mugged off by young lad who can shift a ball and go past them without even flinching.

“For a lad that’s 16, that’s quite impressive.”

The deal includes a number of add-ons if Mahoney progresses at Rovers, and Beattie says Stanley may try to bring the teenager back on loan in the near future.

“I might be looking to get him back in January,” he admitted.

“They’re going to do the fitness tests and the various assessments and then see where he’s at in January.

“I said I might very well come knocking on the door for Connor, even if it’s not this January then maybe in the future.

“I want to create and enhance the relationship we’ve already got with Blackburn, which is very good.

“I think we could be a tremendous feeder club for Blackburn and vice versa.

“Blackburn is such a big club that if we needed any help, I’m sure they’d help us out.”

Both clubs are expected to confirm the Mahoney deal this morning with the teenager moving for an undisclosed fee.

Stanley return to action at home to Exeter tomorrow after a blank weekend, with James Gray favourite to replace Kayode Odejayi up front after the expiry of the Rotherham man’s maximum three-month loan.

Odejayi, out of favour at Rotherham, is continuing to train with Stanley ahead of a likely permanent move in January.

With Beattie in charge it should be a very good place to loan our youngsters out to, as he would look after them and they would be in good hands for their development. John Coleman used to get a few off us therefore I can't see why James do the same and benfit both clubs.

“Blackburn is such a big club that if we needed any help, I’m sure they’d help us out"

Leaving aside the..ahem...'big club' part of that quote, it would appear the people at Accrington have very short memories. When they were about to go under for not bothering to pay the tax man about four years ago, which team was it that bailed them out with a friendly game, donating all gate receipts to help their cause? I'll give you a clue, it wasn't Blackburn.

Your minds not what it was is it...

I may be mistaken but didn't you buy the title in 1995? That's more than 10 years ago old man. And haven't you been relegated from the premier league TWICE?

You've got the upper hand there, we'll give you that one.

I think everyone is ever so slightly missing the point here.
This was supposed to a preview of of Accrington Stanley's weekend fixture.
The headline should have been 'Stanley look to return to winning ways' or something similar.
So..not only has The Telegraph excelled itself with the lengths it will go to in ignoring Accrington, but now we have to put up with this Rovers/Burnley slanging match. Disgusting from all concerned.

Lancs - pensioner - very hostile comments toward Stanley 'not bothering to pay' our taxes. Nobody is going to argue that the club on a finanical level has been shoddily run in the past but terminology like that is a very thinly veiled dig at my club.

A Rover 45 years and over - who are you refering to? As a Stanley fan I can't remember that many players The Fat Scouce No Mark got from Rovers, the only one that springs to mind (so the only one of any quality) is Dean Winnard and you let him go - the loans we've had off Rovers have been terrible in the main.

The rest of you - shut it. I'd had enough of this 'but Stanley are my second team' 'I always look for thier results' rubbish. Keep you're bitter ranting to yourself and away from the real 'Pride of Lancashire'

Twonks the lot of you.

No, a lot of them moved to support Rovers. What Bob the Butcher and Burnley did to Accrington Stanley was one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the English game but that is B*rnely for you. Never had any class has that club. I was speaking to a Hull fan a few months ago and he said he hated B*rnley for what they did to Stanley. Football fans have long memories.

Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa and their respective chairmen were pivotal int he founding of the Football League and the professional game.

Rovers' founder John Lewis helped spread the game to South America.

Blackburn Olympic and then Blackburn Rovers winning the FA Cup is recognized by footballing historians as THE most important even in the history of English football.

For three consecutive FA Cup wins, they are the only club in English football awarded the unique honour of displaying their club crest on all four corner flags. Ewood Park is the oldest home to a Premier League or Football League club. The only town club to have won the Premier League. The only Football Club to be founder members of the Premier League and Football League and Champions of both. No wonder you hate us so much. FORWARD Rovers FORWARD. BRFC:ThePeoplesChampions

Wild Rover, just look up. No a bit higher. No for goodness sake really look up. That's right. What you can see there is the gutter. That's how far you have fallen. Now, there's a good freak, you'll see a telescope to your left. Have a peak through there. That twinkle of light you see is 1000 light years from here. And that's Burnley at the top of the Championship. That's called reality. Eat it.

Leaving aside the..ahem...'big club' part of that quote, it would appear the people at Accrington have very short memories. When they were about to go under for not bothering to pay the tax man about four years ago, which team was it that bailed them out with a friendly game, donating all gate receipts to help their cause? I'll give you a clue, it wasn't Blackburn.
Which football club was it that butchered Accrington Stanley in the 1960's?

I'll give you a clue, it wasn't Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

Why the "Ahem" cough? Still chocking on the **** that dribbled off the end of your fathers diseased co.ck?

B*rnley, out supported in all but 32 years. Rovers formed 1875, B*rnley formed 1882 as a Rugby Club called B*rnley Rovers, playing in Blue 'n' white halves and pink shorts. This is true, you could not make this up and YOU cannot rewrite the history books but oh how we know B*rnley love to do that.

Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa and their respective chairmen were pivotal int he founding of the Football League and the professional game.

Rovers' founder John Lewis helped spread the game to South America.

Blackburn Olympic and then Blackburn Rovers winning the FA Cup is recognized by footballing historians as THE most important even in the history of English football.

I think the people of Accrington have very long memories. They remember how Burnley shafted them in 1962 and caused the original Stanley to fold.
