Ahead of today’s trip to face Mossley AFC in the Buildbase FA Trophy Preliminary Round, Skelmersdale United welcome Callum Mahoney back to the Evo-Stik League North club.

Mahoney re-joins the club after a recent spell with league rivals Clitheroe, and re-unites with recent signing Mike Roddy after the two combined at Clitheroe and also with manager Dave Powell, who he played under at Burscough after departing United.

He also has strong links with the club itself after his father Mal captained the side in the 1990’s.

Mahoney played at Nelson and Ashton Athletic before being snapped up by then-United manager Tommy Lawson in the summer of 2016.

A superb winning goal at home to Corby Town was the highlight of his fourteen appearances before he went on to play at Burscough ahead of a re-union at Marine AFC with Lawson.

United manager Dave Powell said: “I am delighted to welcome Callum back to the club, having worked with him before at Burscough, I am looking forward to him boosting our current squad.”

Mahoney said: “I am happy to sign back with Skem, made more enjoyable working and being managed by Dave. He has great knowledge to pick a team up which is needed as we are in the bottom half of the league and I can’t wait to get going.

“I am happy that I have been brought in to lift the team and join the spirit going through the squad, take that onto the pitch and get us back up into top half. I am looking forward to playing football again as I have had a short break”.
