BENNY Ashley-Seal made the switch from Under-23s football to men’s football when he joined Accrington Stanley on loan, and he thinks others should copy him.

The Wolves loanee has made five appearances since joining John Coleman’s side and is hoping this experience will bode well for him going into next season.

Ashley-Seal admits he joined the Reds due to them being very keen to sign him during the January transfer window.

“Getting the experience of league football and wanting to do well on a personal note are my aims and then I can see where it takes me ahead of next season,” said Ashley-Seal.

“I think that more younger players at the Premier League clubs should try to go out on loan to the lower leagues to see what it’s like at this level.

“There is something to play for here and you can always work your way up to the top, and my target is to score as many goals as I can until the end of the season and see what happens next."

The striker made his debut for Wolves during their FA Cup third round tie at home to Manchester United and he highlighted how the interest shown by the Reds in the January transfer window.

“I first heard of the interest about two weeks before deadline day, and at first everything was moving quite slowly because I wasn’t meant to go out on loan," Ashley-Seal said.

“It was frustrating at the time because I didn’t know what was happening, but Accrington seemed keen and I’m now enjoying my time at the club."

Ashley-Seal was involved in the Wolves set up that won the Championship and the striker believes being around a winning environment is good for a younger player.

"“It was very good and it was a strange one for me because it was quite an experience for everyone at the club," added Ashley-Seal.

“Obviously I was with the Under-23s, but just looking in and seeing the little things they do and how much it meant to win was a big thing for me.

“It was the first time I had been in the environment of a club winning something big and an actual trophy, so it was a good start to life at Wolves.”

After promotion to the Premier League for the Midlands club, they embarked on a pre-season trip to Switzerland, a tour that Ashley-Seal was invited to be a part of.

"At the start I wasn’t too sure what to think about it because most young players get taken on the pre-season tour," he added.

“It was the best time to go with them because it gave me a little taste of what it is like to be in a first team environment.

“Going on the tour certainly made me hungry for more, because once you’ve been there you don’t want to look back as that is the dream goal.”

He joined Portuguese side Famalicao on loan last season, but before that move he was awarded with a new contract at Molineux.

“It always makes you feel good and it does give you the belief that the club does have faith in you," added Ashley-Seal.

“Obviously the loan move was to another country, and I had to learn a new language and a new culture, but if you want it that bad then you’ll go anywhere and do whatever it takes.

“At the time it was what Wolves wanted, what Nuno wanted and Famalicao really wanted me and they did everything they could.

“It was a good learning curve and a good experience, even though I wasn’t playing it still felt good to be a part of a team that achieved promotion.”
