WARRINGTON Town have made their second signing of the day, announcing the capture of young midfielder Charlie Munro from Ashton Athletic.
Munro, 23, has been called a stand-out player in the North West Counties, and steps up two levels of the football pyramid to join the Yellows.
Manager Paul Carden said: “Charlie was put to us last season from a few people signing his praises, saying he was the stand out player in that league. He was watched a few times by someone whose opinion I value really highly, and he told me his qualities and said it’s a no brainer.
“He’s a midfield player who can do a bit of everything, his main strength is getting on the ball in deeper areas and making things happen; technically he’s very good, he demands the ball and he’s a good age.
“He’s played plenty of football in leagues that are tough, and he’s chosen us over other clubs which is nice to hear. He’s young, hungry, wants to do well, shown he’s more than capable at that level and he wants to challenge himself and show that he is better than this level.
“He’s got a great attitude. He’s selected his next club because he wants to progress, and I know that he’s selected it carefully.
“He’d been followed by a few other clubs where he’s seen they’ve got midfielders as captains, and he’s seen with us that Scott Brown and Isaac Marriott have gone back to their parent clubs, and so there’s an opening there for him to play, and I like that, because it shows he’s got something about him.
“He wants it to happen quickly, he wants to get in the team quickly, prove what he’s about, establish him and fair play to him. Hopefully he will be that next little gem.”
Earlier on Monday, the Yellows announced the arrival of centre-back Callum Grogan from league rivals Radcliffe.
