Gainsborough Trinity have confirmed the signing of Alex Byrne on contract for the 2018/19 season.
Following a successful spell last season at Shaw Lane, Byrne linked up earlier in the summer with the well renowned V9 Jamie Vardy academy where he impressed a number of coaches. The Trinity management team of Lee Sinnott and John Reed however were able to persuade the attack minded midfielder would be best served joining the Holy Blues where he would link up with a number of familiar faces.
“Alex was somebody we initially targeted last season, but as soon as a player of his quality became available we made our intentions known to him & then it was just a waiting game to insure we got our man.”
Sinnott continued, “Alex offers good delivery from set pieces, can play across the midfield and in further attacking areas. He provides great quality and also chips in with a few goals. I’m sure as he plays more games with his team mates and the understanding develops Alex will get people on their feet and excite the Gainsborough supporters!”
