NEW SIGNING: Liam McAlinden

28 July 2018

Cheltenham Town have today completed the signing of striker Liam McAlinden.

The 24-year-old has today (Saturday) put pen to paper and agreed a two-year deal with the Robins.

McAlinden started his career in the Academy ranks at Wolverhampton Wanderers and went onto make 14 appearances in the old gold after making his debut in 2013.

The Cannock-born striker enjoyed loan spells at Shrewsbury Town, Fleetwood Town and Crawley Town before making a move to Exeter City in 2016.

McAlinden has also represented the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and at Under-21 level.

Manager Gary Johnson said: “We are delighted that Liam is joining the club and he gives us another very good option up front.

“Liam has a very good all-round game and is a left footer which gives us more balance to our play.

“He has probably not scored the number goals in his career that he would like and instead has lots of assists. I’m determined to help him turn that around and score the number of goals I know he can.

“I feel Liam will be a very good signing for the Robins and I’m excited to see him in action.”

McAlinden said: “I’m really pleased to sign for Cheltenham Town and get my future sorted ahead of the new season.

“I’ve had a great time training with the players in recent days, have enjoyed the set-up and the training ground environment.

“The new squad that has been assembled looks strong and talented and hopefully I can add to that and I can help the Robins really kick on this season. I’m looking forward to getting started.”
