A product of the Manchester City academy, where he spent over a decade developing his game, Will Patching arrived at Oriel Park ahead of the 2020 campaign.
The Stockport native represented England up to U18 level and was part of the Three Lions’ U17 squad that included Liverpool star Trent Alexander Arnold and Everton full-back Tom Davies at the 2015 World Cup.
After seeing his 14-year spell at City come to an end when his contract expired in 2018, Will spent a season at Notts County where he made 10 appearances before departing Meadow Lane in the summer of 2019.
He arrived at Oriel Park in November 2019 but made just four starts in the subsequent campaign as COVID-19 saw the SSE Airtricity League season halved to just 18 games.
