Mickleover’s John McGrath has added vastly experienced midfielder Will Atkinson to his squad for the forthcoming season.
A former Hull City Junior, Atkinson has played in every division of the football league during his career, notably in the Premiership during his time with the Tigers.
He has played for Port Vale, Rochdale, Rotherham, Plymouth and Bradford City too, and had four years at Southend, before going to Mansfield in 2017. He returned to Southend after a spell at Alfreton and spent last season at Boston Utd.
He has made over 300 league appearances and scored 30 goals and can play at wing back too.
“Will is an excellent signing who brings with him a wealth of experience playing in the football league. His temperament and style of style make him an excellent addition to our team,” said McGrath.
“I’m really pleased to join such a forward thinking club and can’t wait to get started,” Atkinson added.
