Football career[edit]

He joined League Two club, Morecambe on loan for a month on 18 March 2011.[4][5] Aley made his debut for Morecambe on 22 March, in the 2–1 home defeat against Macclesfield Town when he came on as a substitute for Kevan Hurst in the 75th minute.[6]

Aley re-joined Conference National side Southport on an initial one-month loan on 21 October 2011. He went out on loan again at the end of that season, this time at Macclesfield Town.[7] In the summer of 2012 Zac was released by Blackburn Rovers, Aley went on trial with Southport. On 14 September 2012, he joined Northern Premier League side Warrington Town on a free transfer, but left the club less than two months later in November 2012 by mutual consent.[8] On 9 November 2012, Zac signed with high flying Ashton Town a team that plays in the North West Counties Football League.
