Aidan Roxburgh has become the latest player to sign on for Runcorn Town ahead of the 2019/20 season, after joining from Welsh Alliance League side Greenfield.
It will be a second spell at the club for Roxburgh, who joined the club as an 18-year old at the start of the 2017/18 season. He made his debut in the FA Cup at home to AFC Darwen, but regular football though proved difficult with Roxburgh making 20 appearances that season, 13 from the bench.
He left at the start of last season to join Holywell Town before quickly moving to Greenfield. Regular football has done him the power of good and he has returned to Runcorn with a renewed determination to nail a starting spot.
His ability was never in question but pre-season matches have showed him stronger and fitter than his previous spell, and he will certainly give manager Paul McManus some selection headaches.
Speaking of the signing, McManus said: “It’s great to have Aidy come back in with us ahead of this season and I’ve already been impressed with what I have seen from him. Moving to us originally from youth football was difficult, but his full year in men’s football last season, playing week in, week out, has looked to have worked wonders for us.
“He looks strong and will certainly be pushing for a starting spot in what is looking more and more like a very competitive squad.”
