Stockport County have signed former FC Halifax Town striker Liam McAlinden.
The 26-year-old was top scorer for the Shaymen this season, having signed a short-term deal last summer, which expired a few days ago.
The frontman has scored ten goals in 28 appearances this season, bringing him to the attention of several clubs higher up the pyramid.
McAlinden makes a swift return to Edgeley Park, having scored a consolation goal for Halifax in their 5-1 defeat against the Hatters on Boxing Day.
County boss Jim Gannon says he’s delighted to have been able to add the six-foot-one striker to his squad for the rest of the season: “He plays off the left, which has seen him reach double figures already this season, including his goal at Edgeley Park last month.
“But he can also play right across the front four positions, and can operate as a number ten or a second nine, so he’s a really versatile attacking player.”
