Quakers sign Josh Heaton
Darlington have today signed defender Josh Heaton from Ramsbottom.
Josh, 21, started his career at Preston North End, but was released in the summer of 2016. In his ten years at Preston, he also had loan spells at Tamworth and Colne. He then joined Droylsden and Stalybridge Celtic before switching to Bamber Bridge last summer. He played for Quakers in pre season, but a proposed move broke down because of injury.
In October this year, he moved on to Ramsbottom in the EvoStik First Division North, making three appearances for them.
Darlington manager Tommy Wright, who is hoping to complete at least two more signings, said; “I feel that we need a bigger presence in the centre of our defence. I tried to get Josh when he was at Preston, but he was tracked by several other clubs as well, and I missed out. He was also watched by several bigger clubs in his Preston career as well. He has got experience of this league from his days at Tamworth and Stalybridge.”
Josh goes straight into the squad for the away game at Kidderminster on Saturday.
We would like to wish Josh a happy and successful stay at the club.
