Salford City have announced the signing of attacking midfielder Danny Lloyd from League One Peterborough United.
Liverpudlian Lloyd started out with Southport in 2009 and had loan spells at Skelmersdale United and Chorley. In 2011 he moved to Colwyn Bay, returning to the Welsh club following a stint with Lincoln City.
Lloyd returned to the highest level of non-league football in January 2013 when he made the move to Tamworth. At the end of the season he returned to the North, signing for AFC Fylde. The Coasters secured promotion to the Conference North in 2014 with Lloyd finishing that successful campaign as joint top scorer.
Stockport County came calling during the summer of 2016 and Lloyd hit a spell of tremendous form at Edgeley Park. Salford City fans will doubtless remember his goals against their side during the following season and he ended up with a haul of 29. Unsurprisingly, there was interest from the English Football League following the expiry of his contract with Stockport at the end of the season.
League One Peterborough United won the race for Lloyd’s signature and he signed a three-year contract with the Posh. He made his debut off the bench during the season opener versus Plymouth Argyle and scored his first goal against Northampton Town in the League Cup. He notched a hat-trick against Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup and by the end of the season had scored 13 goals in 37 outings.
The Ammies acted quickly when news came through that Lloyd might be available for transfer. A fee was agreed with Peterborough and the 26-year old was keen to make the move, signing a three-year deal.
