Career[edit]

Born in Droylsden, Greater Manchester,[1] Taylor began his career as a trainee at Oldham Athletic in October 2005. However, he made no appearances for Oldham before joining Stockport County on loan in March 2006.[3] He signed a permanent two-year contract with Stockport County in August 2006,[4] and then signed a new two-year in January 2007, with manager Jim Gannon saying, "He has all the attributes in terms of stamina and work-rate, plus he is mobile and we keep trying to add to his game. He has grown in confidence and he could be a fantastic player. He might out-grow us but I like to think we are bringing in players that will grow with this club. We think he's going to be an important player for us for a number of years and I'm delighted he's extended his contract."[5] He made 51 league and cup appearances for Stockport in the 2006–2007 season,[6] and won the club's Young Player of the Year award at the end of the season.[7]
