Southport have made three new signings in Jordan Lussey, Ryan Higgins and Declan Weeks.

Lussey started his career with Liverpool.southport

The 21-year-old progressed through the Reds’ academy and has played five times for their under-21 side this term without appearing in the first-team.

He spent time on loan at Bolton Wanderers towards the end of the 2014/15 season, and although he never made a senior appearance, impressed enough to earn a deal with the Trotters in the summer of 2015 after being released by Liverpool.

He was a regular in Bolton`s under-21 and development sides and spent a month on loan with then League Two York City where he made his professional debut against Accrington Stanley in November 2015.

Lussey, who represented England at under-18 level on two occasions, was released by Bolton at the end of last season.

Twenty-two-year-old Higgins recently left National League side Chester Fc, having been signed by new Southport boss Steve Burr for the Blues in January 2015 from AFC Telford United.

Liverpool-born, Higgins (pictured) started his career with Everton and then Birmingham City.

He had loan spells with Tamworth and AFC Telford before joining the Bucks on a permanent basis in September 2014.

Twenty-year-old Weeks travelled with the Wolverhampton Wanderers first-team for the 2014 and 2015 summer’s pre-season trips.

He has played for Wales at various age groups, including under-19 and under-21.

He made his international under-21 debut when he came off the bench at half-time in a UEFA Under-21 Championship match against Bulgaria on March 31st 2015.

He received his first professional contract in February 2014 and just over a year later Wolves announced that they had taken up their option on a second year.

However, he was one of six under-21 players released by Wolves at the end of last season, despite being skipper of the side.
