Southport have signed former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City youth team goalkeeper Charlie Albinson.

The 22-year-old stopper, who played the second half of the Port’s pre-season win at Widnes, puts pen to paper ahead of the new campaign.

Albinson, part of the Blackburn U23 squad which won PL2 Division 2 in 2018, has spent the past two years at Ewood Park, initially signing a 12-month contract which was then extended.

Born in Bolton, Albinson joined Manchester City at the age of eight, progressing through the youth set-up to feature for the club in the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup squad which reached the final of 2015.

He has experience of first-team football with Rossendale United and Warrington Town, where he spent part of last season, and also spent time at Bury before joining Blackburn.
