Hatters send for Ruddy

13 September 2006 12:41
Stockport County boss Jim Gannon has moved to try and halt his side's slump by signing Everton goalkeeper John Ruddy on a one-month loan deal. The Hatters are in the League Two drop zone after losing 3-0 to Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday, but Ruddy is still pleased to be moving to Edgeley Park. The 19-year-old told Everton's official website: "Going on loan is most definitely something that can benefit you. As long as the football is a good standard and you are getting games every week, it is good for any player." Ruddy has made just one first-team appearance for Everton since moving to Goodison Park from Cambridge United in May 2005, but had loan spells with Walsall, Rushden & Diamonds and Chester City last season.
