The 23-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the club, with the option of a further year.

Charles, who has played at Under-21 level for Northern Ireland, began his career at Blackpool, and has also had spells with AFC Fylde and Fleetwood Town.

Stanley manager John Coleman said: “I watched quite a bit of Dion at the back-end of last season, during pre-season and at the start of this season, and he’s impressed me the way he conducts himself on the pitch.

“He works his socks off, he’s a good footballer and he’s got an eye for goal. He’s got good pace, and he’s played men’s football a lot, and this is a chance for him to reignite his career.”
