Mickleover have added former Southampton striker Marcus Barnes to their squad, after he scored two goals in the clubs opening pre-season friendly at Borrowash Victoria.
“I’m looking forward to enjoying my football and joining a group players and a club with the ambition of wanting to achieve success this year, and hopefully throughout I can contribute towards that,” he said.
Barnes also has League Two experience with Yeovil Town and Oldham Athletic, and had a loan spell with Eastleigh too. He spent the end of last year with Northern Colorado based Hailstorm FC in the USL League One.
“Marcus is a player who will add great athleticism and speed to our front line. He’s an exceptionally talented footballer who we believe has the ability to play higher up the football divisions,” added gaffer John McGrath.
