THE Shrimps have added to their attacking options by signing striker Liam McAlinden.
The 26-year-old former Wolves striker joins the Shrimps after successful spells with Halifax and Stockport County last season.
McAlinden said: "The gaffer is really enthusiastic about the season and I’m looking forward to getting going. As a player, I like to get in behind and make good runs for others and hopefully I can create a lot of chances and score a lot of goals.
“Last season was a good one for me and I’m looking forward to getting back into the League and kicking on again.
"I was at Wolves from the age of seven to 22 and made my debut. I had a few loan moves and had two seasons at Exeter with two-play off finals before a move the Cheltenham.
"It’s been the strangest summer I’ve known. It’s been really different for all players so I’m delighted to get things done early and I snatched the gaffer’s hand off when he offered me a deal here and I’m looking forward to getting going.’'
Boss Derek Adams said: “I’ve watched Liam’s progress since he was at Wolves. He has had some good spells. He is left-sided and can score goals from nothing and adds good competition for places up front.
Born in Cannock, Liam started his career at Wolves and rose through the youth ranks at Molyneux before making his debut against Burnley in 2013.
He scored his first Wolves goal in a 1-0 win at MK Dons in March 2014 and ended the season winning promotion back to the Championship.
He scored twice in 19 appearances for Wolves before spells with Exeter City and Cheltenham Town.
Liam has also won caps at Under-21 level with both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
