Curzon Ashton are delighted to announce that striker Chris Sharp has agreed a deal to join the club from Alfreton Town.
Thirty-one-year-old Sharp, son of ex- Everton and Scotland player Graeme, began his career in Wales with Rhyl before moving on to Bangor City.
Impressive displays for Bangor, including 33 goals in 40 appearances, earned Chris a move to The New Saints where he scored 22 goals in 29 appearances.
After winning the Welsh title and playing Champions League football in the process, the forward accumulated over 100 National League appearances across respective spells with Telford, Hereford and Lincoln.
Chris also appeared for Salford City, Stockport County and Bradford Park Avenue before linking up with Alfreton Town last summer, where he started 25 games and scored seven goals.
Manager John Flanagan, on his third summer signing, commented: “Nev and myself are really pleased to be able to announce the signing of Chris. He’s played well against us on a number of occasions over the last few seasons and subsequently I’ve had my eye on him. He’s a big lad, powerful, aggressive and deceptively quick.
“Once again my focus has been on improving our attacking options and I feel that if we use Chris in the right way we will benefit from an increase in our goals tally.”
Everyone at the Tameside Stadium would like to extend a warm welcome to Chris and wish him well with his time at Curzon!
