Vanarama National League North club FC United of Manchester have made another new signing as manager Karl Marginson strengthens his squad further for the run-in to the end of the season.

Experienced forward Dale Johnson has signed from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division side Ashton United.

Johnson has significant experience of National League level, with Altrincham, Hyde United, Droylsden, Halifax Town and Barrow AFC.

Johnson originally joined Ashton in November 2013 and played a major part in the club reaching the 2014 play-off final.

He re-joined them in November 2014 after a short spell with Salford City.

Marginson said: “Dale is a player that we have been aware of for some time and is a proven goalscorer in the non-League game. We look forward to working with him over the coming weeks.”

Meanwhile, defender Liam Brownhill has moved in the opposite direction, joining Ashton United on loan.

Brownhill has been `Mr Dependable` for FC United at right-back since joining two years ago.

He is strong in defence and has a great ability to float dangerous balls in from set pieces.

Another named in the 2014/15 NPL side of the year and current vice-captain of the club.
