Manager Liam Watson has strengthened his defensive options with the signing of Zehn Mohammed.
Zehn, who spent a brief period with Southport last season, re-joins on a youth loan from Accrington Stanley until January.
The 19-year-old full-back spent two months with the Port during the winter before finishing the season at FC United of Manchester, making 15 appearances in the Vanarama National League North.
Zehn has already featured for Southport during pre-season and scored our third goal in the friendly win against the Fleetwood Town Development Squad yesterday.
[blockquote author=”Manager Liam Watson”]
Zehn is a really good lad who is still young and I’m very pleased that Accrington have agreed to let him join us again. He fitted into the squad well last season and his experience in playing for FC United saw him develop a lot.
As a player, he brings flexibility, commitment and a lot of potential. We’ve already seen him grow as a player since he was first with us and it’s good to have him back again.[/blockquote]
Born in Blackburn, Zehn signed a professional contract with Accrington in the summer of 2017, and has also spent time on loan at Ramsbottom United and Clitheroe in a bid to assist his development.
Our thanks to Accrington once again for their assistance with this loan and welcome back to the club, Zehn.
