Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North club Warrington Town have swooped to sign….
…..Chorley’s transfer-listed goal machine Ciaran Kilheeney in time for tomorrow’s trip to Wakefield.
A delighted manager Shaun Reid said: “This is a major coup for Warrington Town as Kilheeney is a proven goalscorer at every club he has played for. It is a massive boost for our squad.”
The 28-year-old joined Chorley in March 2012 from Blue Square Bet North side Droylsden, making an immediate impact at Victory Park, netting twice on his debut at Worksop Town, finishing the season with seven in the final nine games, helping to secure the team a place in the end of season promotion play-offs from the First Division North.
The former Manchester City trainee has continued to score goals this season, adding another eight goals to his tally.
A prolific striker at every club he has played for, he came to prominence in his early 20’s at Ashton United and Radcliffe Borough in the Northern Premier League before becoming a leading striker in the Conference North, netting over 100 goals with Burscough, Southport and Droylsden over a five-year spell.
Meanwhile, Warrington have decided not to take up an option to sign on-loan striker Mark Beesley from NPL Premier Division side Nantwich Town.
