Town are delighted to announce the signing of Antony Kay from Chorley.
The 37 year old signs for the Lakesiders following his release from National League North side Chorley.
The Defender/Midfielder has previously played as high as the Championship, where he racked up a combined 66 appearances for both, his hometown club Barnsley in 2006-2007 and MK Dons in 2015-2016.
His previous clubs include Tranmere Rovers, Huddersfield Town, Bury and Port Vale, and in total has appeared in 599 league games for his 7 previous clubs.
He’s also been capped for the England U18’s squad, when he came on as a substitute against Switzerland on May 30th 2001.
Manager Colin Caton spoke about his new signing and said this:
“He came available to us through being friends with Lee Molyneux, so we brought him in and played for us in a pre season friendly, and he did really well. The calibre of him and the amount of league games he’s played, the experience he will add to the squad is something we couldn’t turn down, he’s come out of the fulltime game and now wants to play part time, to allow him to pursue a different career. We’re fortunate to have him, the pedigree and calibre of him is unbelievable, he’ll add so much experience to our defensive structure and can’t wait to work with him, and in the short time I’ve worked with him, his attitude is second to none, so you can see why he played at the top for a long time, and hope he can rub off on some of our younger players, to change their outlook on how they approach games, so really looking forward to working with him”
