Declan Bacon signs for Sedge from Gainsborough Trinity

Liversedge FC are pleased to announce the signing of striker Declan Bacon from Gainsborough Trinity.

The 26-year-old forward says that wanting a promotion on his CV and the ambition at Liversedge FC to develop the club were both factors in his decision to sign.

Bacon started out at Bottesford Town in the Northern Counties East League and scored 45 goals in the 2016/17 season which earned him a move to the National League North with Alfreton Town.

He had loan spells from Alfreton with Scarborough and Mickleover, before signing for Gainsborough Trinity on a permanent deal.

On signing for Sedge from the NPL Premier Division Club, Bacon said: “I’m buzzing to join.

“We’re top of the league at the moment so I just want to come in and do my bit to keep us there, chip in with a few goals and get that buzz again for every Saturday.”

“I want a promotion on my CV,” he added on what convinced him to make the move to Sedge.

“It would be brilliant if I could do that at Liversedge.

“The club as whole looks to be progressing in the right direction, they have great ambitions. I just want to be a part of that really.”

Asked to describe his style of play, Bacon said: “I’m a traditional number 9.

“I like to try and get in behind the defence, I have a bit of pace.

“So that’s my game, hitting the back line, getting in, and scoring goals really.”

Welcome Declan, we look forward to seeing you turn out for Sedge!
