Southport have completed the signing of young defender Charlie Oliver.
The 21-year-old, who spent ten years in the Manchester City Academy, is available for the weekend’s clash against King’s Lynn Town.
Naturally a central defender, Oliver progressed through the ranks at City, turning professional at the age of 18. He became a regular for their Elite Development Squad, representing the club in PL2 and the EFL Trophy.
“I’m really pleased that Charlie has agreed to sign for us,” said manager Liam Watson.
“He’s an extremely promising player with a really good pedigree. He can play right across the back four and as a holidng midfielder, so he gives us strong variety and good options.”
