Frontman Jonny Edwards has returned to Accrington Stanley on a season-long loan from Hull City.

Edwards, 20, came to Stanley in January this year and scored his first league goal against Doncaster Rovers.

He has signed a new deal with the Tigers this summer but will return to the Wham Stadium for the full season.

“I think we saw glimpses of what Jonny can do last season but unfortunately when he came to Accrington we had a settled side so his opportunities were limited,” said manager John Coleman.

“He will get more chances this year and is an exciting prospect.”
