    Salford FC has welcomed 32 year-old midfielder Michael O'Connor from Lincoln City on a deal until the end of the season.

    O'Connor stayed in League One with Port Vale where he played alongside Chris Neal for two years, followed by two seasons at Notts County before transferring to Lincoln who were also promoted during his first season with the club.

    Writing on the club website, he said:

    Quote

     

    "I've had two promotions from League Two, I know what it takes to get promotion from this league,"

    "I've come here with the belief that I can help the team push on trying to get to the play-offs this year," the former Northern Ireland international added.

    "It's a big ask, but I'm looking forward to the challenge."

     

    The Imps have received an undisclosed fee for O'Connor who will be with Salford FC until the end of the season. He revealed that his decision to move to Salford was down to a phone call he had over the weekend with class of 82 part owner of the club, Garry Neville.

    He will make a fantastic addition to the squad.
