Morton Joins The Nash From Celtic Morton Joins The Nash From Celtic

Curzon Ashton are delighted to announce the signing of defender Danny Morton from Stalybridge Celtic.


Full-back Morton, who spent time at Burnley and Blackburn during his youth, becomes John Flanagan’s second summer addition after winger Connor Hughes joined on Thursday.


The defender became a fans favourite in his two-year spell at Clitheroe after signing from NWCFL side Barnoldswick Town in 2013.

After impressing as skipper of the Evo-Stik North outfit, the 25-year-old earned a move to Stockport County where he spent the entirety of the 2015/16 season and collected their young player of the year award.


Danny joined Stalybridge in 2016 from Colne and was awarded the captain’s armband for the 17/18 season at Bower Fold, where he made 77 appearances.


On the signing of the defender, manager John Flanagan said: “Like Connor Hughes, Danny is a player that I’ve tried to sign previously but circumstances this time allowed us to get the deal done. 


“He’s a great age at 25, experienced and athletic with some excellent leadership qualities so he will bring a lot to our changing room. As a player, he’s adaptable so he’s able to drop in at full-back, centre-half and centre-midfield which will provide much needed cover for a number of positions.”


Everyone at the club would like to extend a warm welcome to Danny and wish him well with his time at the Tameside Stadium!
