Former QPR, Sheffield United and Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has joined Toolstation Northern Counties East Premier League side Maltby Main.
The deal has been made possible because the stopper is friends with one of Main’s joint-bosses in Scott Mason, with the pair talking over the past few days about whether the move could happen.
Now at the age of 39, Kenny is a Republic of Ireland international making seven appearences for the nation between 2004-2006.
He started his career at Bradford Park Avenue making 42 appearences before joining League football after securing a move to Bury, he also had a loan spell at Whitby Town during the 1999-2000 season.
Kenny was recently at League One side Northampton Town in a player-goalkeeper coaching role. Though he will be registered to play for the club.
Maltby Main start their league campaign against one of the favourites for the title in Pickering Town on Wednesday.
