Manchester United defender Will Fish has joined Stockport County on loan.
The 18-year-old will play for the National League side next season on a quest on experience more first team football.
Fish made his first team debut for Manchester United as a last-minute substitute, in the 2-1 win at Wolves in May.
The official club website states that he will remain with United for the beginning of pre-season, like Tahith Chong has done despite signing for Birmingham City on loan, with the club trying to ensure all players sent out on loan can hit the ground running with their new teams.
MUFC defender Will Fish, 18, will join Stockport County on loan. Fifth tier club (but not for long) and playing in front of 4-5,000 (hopefully) will be an experience for him. Near to Mcr too. Also the closest football league ground to the River Mersey when County were in the FL.

The England U18 international spent the last week with United’s first team in Surrey as they prepare to face Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
It will be a great opportunity for Fish to play against men, even if the standard of football will be miles off the pace to what he will be expected to deal with at United.
We all wish Fish the best on loan at Stockport County.
