WARRINGTON Town have made their fourth summer signing with the capture of left-sided defender Joel Amado from Trafford FC.
Amado, 22, has already started training with his new team-mates and follows on from the arrivals of Callum Grogan, Charlie Munro and Craig Carney.
He was part of the Trafford side that won the Integro League Cup in 2019, beating Farsley Celtic in the final, and was previously with Curzon Ashton, as well as playing alongside Yellows striker Jordan Buckley at Irlam FC.
Manager Paul Carden said: “He’s another good young player. A good athlete, he’s 6’2”, he’s got pace and power and he’ll give us a different dimension to what we’ve already got.
“Last season we only really had one player who could play left-back, in Tom Warren, so we wanted to make sure we had cover but Joel is also versatile, which is again something that I’m looking for.
“He gives us a totally different proposition to the left-back position, he gives us balance and gives us the option to play a back three with the defenders we’ve got now.
“We’ve always tried to have young lads who are hungry around the experienced ones, and while we’re still looking to add a bit more experience to the squad, Joel is another good young player who’s got a chance of making it higher up in the game.”
Meanwhile, the Yellows will kick-off their pre-season campaign with a friendly away at Skelmersdale United on August 15.
A home friendly against City of Liverpool on August 28 has also been confirmed, though both are to be played behind closed doors due to the current government restrictions.
