Warrington Town manager Shaun Reid has swooped to strengthen his squad by signing former Blackburn Rovers youngster Zac Aley.
Reid described the left sided defender/midfielder as a "very promising player and a good addition to the squad."
Aley progressed through non-League club Southport's youth system before breaking into the first team, scoring on his league debut against Farsley Celtic.
While at Southport he gained BTECs and NVQs and also became a qualified referee.
He signed for Premier League club Blackburn Rovers in March 2010 after a two-day trial and made one first team appearance.
He joined League Two club, Morecambe on loan for a month making his debut in the 2–1 home defeat against Macclesfield Town when he came on as a substitute.
After being released by Blackburn he rejoined Southport.
Aley is set to be part of the squad that welcomes Leek Town in the FA Trophy Preliminary Round tomorrow. The game at the Abacus Solicitors Community Stadium kicks off at 3:00pm.
