Ross Etheridge: Accrington Stanley sign ex-Derby keeper

The Crown Ground
Accrington Stanley finished 17th in League Two last season

Accrington have signed Derby goalkeeper Ross Etheridge on a free transfer.

The 20-year-old, who has agreed a one-year deal with Stanley, failed to make a first-team appearance for the Rams after coming through the youth system.

He had loan spells at Crewe, where he did not feature, Leek Town and Stalybridge Celtic last season.

"He's been in and around the Football League but has yet to make his debut so it's a big chance for him," manager John Coleman told the club website.external-link

Etheridge is the sixth new arrival at Stanley so far this summer.
