IN PROFILE | “An Exciting Prospect”

The arrival of Kieran Glynn on loan from SkyBet League Two side Salford City strengthens the midfield options available to manager Liam Watson for the forthcoming season.

Glynn joined the Port today on a deal for the whole of the 2019-20 season, becoming the first summer addition to the squad of contracted players already in place.

Glynn started his senior career with FC United of Manchester, making 55 appearances for the club and scoring five goals.

The versatile midfielder came into football through a different route to most players. Having not been part of a youth academy at a professional club, he was spotted by FC United whilst playing for Hopwood Hall College, close to where he grew up in Greater Manchester.

Glynn made a big impression during his time at Broadhurst Park, making his league debut aged 18 and playing two full seasons before departing last summer in a bid to play full-time football.

His performances for FC United attracted the interest of Salford, newly-promoted to the Vanarama National League and against whom he scored the previous season, with the Ammies paying an undisclosed fee for his services.

Throughout last season he made four appearances for Salford and spent two separate spells away from the Peninsula Stadium.

His first stint saw him join Chorley, featuring nine times in the two months he spent at Victory Park.

During his time with the Magpies he helped the side reach the First Round of the Emirates FA Cup, before being recalled by his parent club.

In March, the 21-year-old headed out again, this time to promotion-chasing Vanarama National League South side, Woking, where he spent the remainder of the season.

Glynn, described by Liam Watson as an exciting prospect, is a player with great potential and excellent technical ability who can score goals, create chances and play in a variety of positions across the midfield.

With the experience at this level that belies his young age, Glynn will be hoping to make his mark for the Port this season.
