Hazel Looks Forward to Loan Move

Young striker Jacob Hazel is looking forward to his impending Norwegian loan move.

Hazel has agreed to join Sprint-Jeloy, who currently occupy fourth place in the third tier.

The 19-year-old will fly out to Norway once the relevant paperwork has been completed to allow the temporary switch to go ahead.

"I'm buzzing about the move," he said. "It'll be a new experience for me and I can't wait to go there."

Hazel, who had spells on loan at Matlock Town and Workington last season, travelled to Norway last month to discuss a move to Moss.

Sprint-Jeloy head coach Gard H Kristiansen is looking forward to working with the teenage forward. "Feedback on him is very good and we are very happy that this has worked out," he said.

Hazel made his senior debut as a substitute in last September's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at home to Oldham Athletic. He made his league debut four days later in the 2-2 draw at York City and also appeared as a substitute in the 1-1 draw against Torquay at the end of that month.

Hazel has been a regular goalscorer at reserve-team level and it was his natural finishing ability that prompted manager Paul Cook to hand him a new 12-month contract at the end of the season.
