Hebburn Town have completed the signing of midfielder Michael Richardson after his release from South Shields.

The Hornets moved to add the 27-year-old to their squad in the latest high-profile capture for the resurgent club.

Richardson joins fellow ex-Mariners Louis Storey, Graeme Armstrong, Luke Sullivan and Andrew Stephenson at Hebburn, and becomes manager Scott Oliver’s 10th signing of a busy summer. Richardson will go straight into the team for Saturday’s Northern League Division One opener against Penrith at the newly-named Energy Check Sports Ground.

Oliver said: “Michael has been a big part of South Shields’ success and we are delighted to have him. “He is close friends with Graeme Armstrong and Louis Storey and they have told him how impressed they are with the set-up we have here. “He will go straight into the team on Saturday.”
