Mickleover Sports have signed experienced former Football League defender Greg Young.

Young, 36, played for Grimsby in Division One (now the Championship) before playing in non-league for Halifax, Altrincham, York, Gainsborough, Buxton and most recently Frickley.

He said: “I am delighted to be joining such a well established club as Mickleover Sports. I am well aware of the quality of football that the team is encouraged to play. As soon as I was approached by the manager John McGrath I was immediately excited about joining and it was an easy decision to sign.

“I know the league well and what it takes to be successful.”

Manager John McGrath added: “My recruitment was to find a centre-half who would seamlessly fit into an already experienced defensive unit. To get this signing over the line is a massive statement of intent from us as a club.

“He is renowned for his aggression but he also possesses a very talented left foot and is comfortable in possession, which really suits our style of play, and he will give natural balance down that left side.”
