Altrincham have announced two new signings on the eve of their Buildbase FA Cup First Round tie at Lincoln City.

Both players are eligible for selection for that tie at Sincil Bank.

Curtis Obeng will be best known to Alty fans as a former Wrexham defender. He had very recently joined Macclesfield Town from Swansea City.

Obeng was at Wrexham from summer 2009 until January 2012 when he moved up to Swansea and he spent nearly five years at the Premiership club.

He was released in October 2016 but, whilst with the Welsh club, he had loan spells at four Football League clubs, namely Fleetwood Town (3 months), York City (one month), Stevenage (more than 3 months) and Newport County (3 months)

Also joining is Simon Lenighan from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division neighbours Warrington Town.

He started out with Leeds United and from Elland Road he had loan spells with FC Halifax Town (February -June 2014) and Alfreton Town (February to April 2015).

He then joined Rotherham United on a free transfer before recently signing for the Wire.
