Former Burnley and Manchester United youngster Luke Daly has completed a move to South Shields.
The midfielder has joined from Droylsden and goes straight into contention for Saturday’s game at Mickleover Sports. Daly, 22, spent almost 10 years in Manchester United’s academy before a three-year spell at Burnley, one of which was as a professional.
He then signed for Droylsden and caught the eye as a standout player with the club, including in two matches against Shields last season.
Daly is enthused by the challenge ahead at Mariners Park.
He said: “I feel very excited to be here because it’s a big club and you can see how it’s moving forward. It’s something I want to be involved in.
“The style of play here suits me and I know what to expect, having played against the club twice last season. The way they pass it and the way they move off the ball is brilliant, and I want to be a part of that.
“The fanbase here is also fantastic and you can’t beat playing in front of crowds like that, so I can’t wait to get going.”
