Another Stockport native, like teammate Matty Daly, Ben joined Town’s Academy at Under-15 level.
A pacy, left footed player, Ben can play out wide in either defence or midfield and is another player to have made his breakthrough into Town's Under-18 side as a schoolboy, scoring once in seven starts and three substitute appearances in 2016/17.
Ben has played the majority of his football at left back for the Under-18s as one of the senior players in the side during 2017/18.
'Jacko' made 38 appearances for the Under-19s, scoring twice, during 2018/19, before leaving for his first spell in senior football during 2019/20.
Ben has been a regular in the team of his hometown club Stockport County on loan this year, although his time there was punctuated by a recall in December 2019. During that month, he was on Town's First Team bench on two occasions.
