01 Aug 2018 : Teenage defender Declan Gallagher puts pen to paper after successful trial
Promising teenager Declan Gallagher has been drafted in by Runcorn Linnets to increase their defensive options.
Declan impressed during a pre-season trial spell, which has seen him pitched against opposition including National League North clubs.
A tall and confident centre back, the 19-year-old's last club was Vauxhall Motors, who were Cheshire Amateur Cup runners-up in 2017-18.
They also finished second behind South Liverpool in West Cheshire League Division One.
Prior to that, Declan was as a youth player on the books of Mersey Royal and Skelmersdale United.
His performances led to him gaining representative honours with Liverpool County FA's Under 18s team.
It was with the LCFA that Declan, who also spent time as a youngster with Wigan Athletic, completed a hat-trick of National Cup titles - after similar success with Liverpool Schoolboys Under 15s and his school's U16s side.
Linnets boss Michael Ellison said: "Declan is a young player with great potential."
