Jim Gannon has announced his third summer signing today with the news that Michael Clarke, former Northwich Victoria defender, had joined the Hatters.
Clarke, who is a Stockport-born lad, has said that he’s ‘excited to play in front of 3,500 fans each week’ and can’t wait for the start of the season. The defender initially played up top for Vics but after Gannon arrived at Northwich, that all changed and he hasn’t looked back, becoming a mainstay in their backline.
The centre-back has also plied his trade at Chester, Rushall Olympic and Woodley Sports before making his move to Vics’, obviously as a striker rather than a defender.
All the best, Michael, we look forward to seeing you in a County shirt this summer!
