Radcliffe have signed former Bury and Leyton Orient captain Stephen Dawson.

Dawson, who also wore the armband during his time at Barnsley and Scunthorpe United, is the first signing since the appointment of new manager Lee Fowler.

The 34-year-old Irishman recently left Hereford, where he had been playing for his former Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade, prior to Slade’s departure last month.
