Southport have completed the signings of Andy Parry and Zac Corbett.

22-year-old Corbett, most recently of FC United of Manchester, has signed a one-year deal at the Merseyrail Community Stadium.

Manager Liam Watson said: “I saw Zac last season playing for FCUM against Southport, we’ve had another couple of looks at him since then. He fits the criteria, he’s a strong, powerful lad.

“He can play left sided centre-half or left back. It’s a great opportunity for him and he’s the type that’ll grab it with both hands. He’ll have a big part to play.”

On joining Southport, Corbett said, “I’m really happy to have joined the club and can’t wait to get started. It’s all about the promotion that everybody wants, and we’ll do everything we can to get there.”

Parry re-joins Southport for his third spell at the club. The 26-year-old Liverpool-born player can play either in defence or midfield. First joining in 2011, he made 62 appearances for the Sandgrounders in his first spell at the club.

Liam Watson said: “Andy was one of the first players we wanted. I know what I get from him. He can play anywhere, right back, centre back, centre mid.

“The fans know him, he was brilliant when he was here and he got sold on my last day to Luton Town, I’m delighted to have him back through the door.”

Parry said: “It was a simple decision for me to come back after I spoke to Liam. I’m made up to be back. You see all the things happening around the Club and around the ground, it’s a really exciting time.”
