Manager Chris Hargreaves first signing of the summer has come in the shape of striker Louis Briscoe.

The 26 year old has signed a two year deal with us, and he’s been a long term target for our gaffer who has been working on this deal since our last season ended.

Having come through the youth ranks at Port Vale, and making three appearances for them, he moved into non league football for a few years spending time with Leek Town, Hednesford Town, Gresley Rover, Stafford Rangers and Ilkeston Town, before he then made the move to Mansfield in 2009, where he stayed for five years.

In his time with them he won Player of the Year, was named in the Conference Team of the Year and also more than played his part in helping them back into the Football League.

As this deal was announced, all that was left to do was the completion of paperwork, and fans were also informed that Hargreaves had seemingly cooled his interest in Luton striker Jon Shaw.
