TRANSFERS | John Paul Kissock Signs

Southport FC have today completed the signing of 27-year-old midfielder John Paul Kissock. Former Sandgrounder Kissock made 28 League appearances for the club over two seasons, scoring 4 goals. John Paul has also represented England U16, U18 and England C.

Beginning his career for Everton’s youth team, he became the youngest ever player for Everton Reserves. After leaving Everton John Paul had spells at Hamilton Academical and Formby before joining Southport. Kissock then went to Luton Town for an undisclosed fee as well as spending time at Macclesfield and Oldham Athletic. He then joined former Southport coach Pablo Asensio at Whitehawk before joining Ebbsfleet United.

John Paul said: “I’ve got a lot of feelings for the club so I’m really happy to be back. The supporters have always been brilliant with me and it’s a club I really like.”

“I left to go to Luton and moved around a little bit. I wanted to get a little closer to home. I’ve had a little girl and wanted to try and get back closer to Liverpool. I was made up when the staff here asked me to come down and sign because of the memories I’ve got here. They showed me how we’re going to play and told me about their ambitions so I’m really happy.”

“We’ve got some great players. Dugdale’s a top player, Jenno’s a top player, there’s a good balance of experience and youth so I really think we can go for it. We need to get to the playoffs, 100%”
