Clitheroe manager joins Mariners…
Marine AFC are pleased to confirm the signing of Clitheroe joint Manager David Lynch as a player.
David, 27, is an experienced midfield player with plenty of National League experience.
He is available to play in Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie versus Tottenham Hotpur at the Marine Travel Arena.
Manager Neil Young said:
“With new loans being very difficult to arrange at the moment and no league football after Sunday, as well as any potential issues that may come out of the COVID testing I made an approach to Clitheroe to see if we could register their Manager David Lynch as a player for our cup tie with Tottenham Hotspur.
David has played for me before, fits everything we are in terms of his attitude and professionalism and has experience at National League and National League North winning it with Halifax. There are not many players with that CV who are not cup tied and who will fit in with our fantastic group.
I understand a move like this is unprecedented but due to the current circumstances of no other football, we are really grateful that Clitheroe and in particular their Director of Football Carl Garner have allowed David to take part in this game for us.”
