County have signed right back Danny Morton from Clitheroe. The Blues are two leagues below Stockport so the step up could be a big one for 23 year old Morton, but the defender is rated highly at Clitheroe who were sad to see him leave. The Clitheroe site describes Danny as a large, yet skilful and speedy player. Whilst his position has normally been right back, he has the ability to play anywhere on the pitch.
Whether this can be considered a step up from Kyle Jacobs remains to be seen. Jacobs is a proven talent at conference north level and whether Morton can match that, well we’ll see. I suspect that there’ll be a few sceptical fans at the moment though.
