Southport have completed the signing of forward Mike Phenix for an undisclosed transfer fee.

28-year-old Phenix, most recently of Salford City, has signed a two-year deal at the Merseyrail Community Stadium.

He made 80 appearances for Salford, scoring 27 goals, and also spent time at Hindsford, Droylsden, Skelmersdale United, AFC Telford United, Barnsley, Macclesfield Town (loan), and a spell at Southport in season 2015/2016.

Phenix has played for manager Liam Watson previously at AFC Telford and he was integral in his sale to the Football League with Barnsley in 2014 for a record fee.

Watson said: “I am delighted that we have secured Mike for the forthcoming season. Mike is a strong, powerful direct player who knows how to win this league having previously done so for AFC Telford and most recently with Salford City.

“He is an excellent addition to the club and squad and I am looking forward to working with him again.”

On joining Southport, Phenix said: “I’m delighted to be back at Southport, I feel that I have unfinished business from my last spell here.

“The club is very ambitious and I’m looking forward to working with Liam again. I was part of the Salford team that won this division last season and my ambition is to help Southport do the same this coming season. I can’t wait to get started.”
