SEAN McConville had to quit his job working as a Primark Sales Assistant last month after landing a move into the Football League with Accrington, and now he is turning heads with his performances on field.

The 19-year-old was snapped up by Stanley gaffer John Coleman from non-league side Skelmersdale United and instantly made an impressed in the Reds’ side, with a string of impressive showings from the bench.

And the goalless midweek draw with Luton Town saw the man who had been interesting League One pair Stockport County and Brighton, make his full debut almost scoring his first goal, but it wasn’t to be.

McConville, the nephew of Stanley’s Assistant Manager Jimmy Bell, quit his job at Primark in order to take up a full-time contract with Accrington and Coleman is predicting a bright future in the footballing world for the youngster.

“Sean is a good player,” Coleman told the Lancashire Telegraph. “He has some nice touches and played some good balls on Tuesday night.

“It was a shame that he missed the chance in the first-half and maybe he snatched at it because of a few nerves because it was early in the game.

“But all strikers miss from time to time. You just want them to be in that position to get the chances.

“He tired towards the end and that is understandable because he has made a big step up from the UniBond into League Two.

“But there is one thing for certain and that is that Sean will become a better and better player with the more games that he plays.”
