Curzon Ashton have announced the signing of centre-back Matt Regan from neighbours and former Vanarama National League North rivals Stalybridge Celtic.
Regan is also known for his capability to play in a defensive midfield role, as well as his centre-back position, and was consistently seen at the heart of the Stalybridge defence for the second half of the 2016/17 season.
The 22-year-old began his youth career at Wrexham before being snapped up by Liverpool, where he was a regular feature in their under-21 side.
After being released by Liverpool, Regan signed for Nottingham Forest which then resulted in him finding his first taste of non-League football, signing for Tamworth in 2013.
From then on Regan picked up non-League experience playing for the likes of Hednesford Town, Northwich Victoria and Stalybridge.
Despite his young age, Regan holds solid non-League experience, and will be hoping to hit the ground running for the Nash in the 2017/18 campaign.
Manager John Flanagan said: “We are really pleased to have secured Matt for next season. He is a great age and has good non-league experience at the level in two spells with Stalybridge.
“He has been good for a number of seasons now and will add balance to the left-hand side. He is an excellent technical footballer and will fit in perfectly”.
