Macclesfield Town have completed the signing of Jack Cudworth after the player impressed whilst on trial.
The former Preston North End Apprentice joins Macc on a one-year deal and will hope to challenge current first-team keeper Jose Veiga for the No.1 spot.
Manager Gary Simpson told the Club’s official website:
“I’ve been wanting to get a second keeper on the books and I’m delighted to get him on board.”
“He’s earned himself a contract and it is our job to help him improve as a player. If that happens then we’ll have two very good keepers on the books.”
Cudworth, a former LFE Blogger, was released by North End in the summer of 2009 but has continued to coach at the Club’s Centre of Excellence.
Last season he played in the Welsh League with Welshpool then Rhyl until off-field problems beset the North Wales Club.
Speaking shortly after signing for the Silkmen, Cudworth said:
“It’s great to back in full-time football but I’m under no illusions that I’ve made it or anything like that. I’ve got a year’s contract here so it’s up to me to work hard, improve and try and push towards the first team.”
“The number of players that fall-out of the game and then get back in to full-time football seems to be minimal so I’m thankful to Macclesfield and the Manager for giving me this second chance.”
