Midfielder Steven Vaughan Jnr, 25, made 58 Football League appearances from 2005-2007 for Chester City before moving on to Rochdale and Boston Utd before returning to Chester City in 2008. Vaughan started his career at Liverpool making 70 appearances for the Reserves and represented England at Under-15, Under-17 and Under-19 level.
Marine Chairman Paul Leary said:
“It is important that Kevin continues to strengthen the squad as we move towards the close of the season. Tim Dittmer has had a reaction from an old lung injury he had some time ago and Kyle will provide that quality of cover that is needed as we push on. The signing of Lloyd and Steven will assist greatly with Kevin’s objectives in the final part of the season. It is hoped that all three will be eligible for tonight’s home game against Kendal Town.”
Marine Manager Kevin Lynch said:
“The signing of the three players could not be better timed as the transfer deadline looms near. I am pleased that the three players have joined Marine and each will provide me with additional benefits and options as I try to continue to improve the overall quality of the squad.”
