Piero Mingoia’s progress with loan club Morecambe has pleased Stanley boss John Coleman.

However, the Wham Stadium chief admits that wing duo Jordan Clark and Sean McConville will take some dislodging having been regulars in the side in 2018/19.

Clark and McConville missed just four League One matches between them having established themselves as Coleman’s first choice options in the wide areas.

That saw Mingoia, who returned to the Wham Stadium last summer, loaned to Morecambe where he played 16 times to help Jim Bentley’s side achieve safety in League Two.

Erico Sousa, another player who operates in the wide areas, also spent time away from the Wham Stadium on loan, but both will be part of Stanley’s pre-season plans and are still under contract at the club.

Coleman said:“Piero did well at Morecambe and we have kept an eye on him while he was there and I know Morecambe were delighted with him.

“He, along with Erico Sousa, were unlucky due to the performances of Sean McConville and Jordan Clark but both will be with us for next season.”

McConville scored 15 league goals last season, while Clark added five from the right wing, meaning Mingoia, who returned to the club after a spell with

Cambridge, was restricted to just two league starts.

Sousa meanwhile, had to be content with five substitute appearances for the first team.

Mingoia will return to the Globe Arena on July 27, but as a Stanley player, after the two clubs arranged a pre-season friendly.

That is one of two close season matches arranged by the Reds who will return to pre-season training at the end of next month.

Of the game against Morecambe, boss Coleman told the club website: “I think that will be a good game, it will be the type of game we need heading into the new season as it will be the style of football we will face in League One, rather than playing a Premier League or Championship team. It’s a good one for our fans as well.”

Stanley have 13 players under contract from last season, with Jonny Maxted and Mark Hughes both currently considering offers for fresh terms.

However, Ben Richards-Everton and Scott Brown have both announced their departures after rejecting new deals.
