Macclesfield Town have completed the signing of defender Josh Thompson from Southport
The former Celtic man is said to have impressed Askey following a number of impressive performances in a campaign which saw The Sandgrounders relegated to the Conference North.
Thompson suffered a potentially career threatening injury back in January during an FA Trophy clash with Wealdstone. He severely ruptured his patella and at one point his whole career was in the balance.
After fighting his way back to fitness, Thompson is an impressive signing and one which adds much to our evolving squad in the build up to the new season.
