SIGNING | Glynn Joins The Port!

We are pleased to confirm our first signing of the summer, with the arrival of Kieran Glynn on a season-long loan from Salford City.

The 21-year-old midfield player joins Liam Watson’s squad ahead of the new campaign, having signed for Salford on a two-year contract last May from FC United of Manchester.

A player with great potential, Kieran was involved with three clubs who gained promotion last season. While his parent club secured a place in the EFL, Kieran spent two months on loan at Chorley before finishing the campaign with Woking, both teams earning a place in the Vanarama National League.

"I’m delighted that we’ve been able to add Kieran to the squad and he’ll be a really good addition for us. Kieran is young lad who is a very exciting prospect. He’s got great talent with the ability to play in several positions, so he will give us a number of options."

Born in Oldham, Kieran played four times for Salford in their promotion season last term. His move to the Peninsula Stadium came on the back of his impressive displays for FC United, progressing into the first team at the age of 18 and making over 50 appearances.

" I’m absolutely made up to be joining Southport. I’m looking forward to trying to help as much as I can and hopefully get the club back to where it belongs. I know a few of the lads already and there’s a great set of players here. They can’t speak highly enough of Liam and Jon McCarthy, so I really can’t wait to get going."

We’d like to welcome Kieran to the club and thank Salford for their assistance with the loan agreement.
