THE Shrimps have added highly-rated defender Tom Brewitt to their squad.
The 22-year-old, who started his career with Liverpool as a junior has signed a one year deal with an option of another 12 months.
Brewitt left Liverpool to join Middlesbrough during the 2016/17 season on a free transfer and moved to AFC Fylde in the National League for 2018/19.
Shrimps’ boss Jim Bentley said he was looking forward to working with the former England Under 17 player.
He said: ”Tom is a player we’ve seen in the past a few times playing in the Liverpool youth teams and he has always impressed us with his attitude and ability. He comes to us after a short spell at Fylde where he would have learnt a lot about men’s football.
"He comes highly recommended from coaches and managers at his previous clubs and he has great potential. He started his career at Liverpool as a centre half but has over the past few seasons played at centre midfield and full back and it is always good to have a couple of utility players within your squad.
"What impresses me most about Tom is what he is like as a person. His love for the game and his willingness to work hard to improve will hopefully help him develop into a first team regular in the future. We are looking forward to welcoming Tom to the club and wish him all the very best for the coming season.''
Brewitt said he is eager to make an impression with the club.
He said: “I was very impressed with what the gaffer said to me.
“It is clear he has big hopes for the club and I’m excited to be involved.
“I know I will have to work hard to break into the side and make my mark but I'm determined to do everything I can to achieve that.
“I'll be giving 110 per cent in everything I do to become a better player and I can’t wait to get started.’’
