Blue Square Bet North club Altrincham have signed former Fleetwood Town midfielder Steve Connors, who was released….
….by Conference Premier side Cambridge United just five weeks after signing him.
Cambridge signed Connors on a two-year deal after his release from Fleetwood at the end of the 2010/11 season.
However, just five weeks after putting pen-to-paper for the U`s he was released having had his pre-season disrupted by a groin injury.
The 25-year-old was not offered new terms by the Cod Army, after ending the season on loan at Altrincham.
He featured eleven times for the Robins after joining them in March.
A tenacious, ball-winning left-footed midfield player, he should prove to be a valuable signing for Alty.
Connors joined Fleetwood from Bradford Park Avenue in February 2009.
