Southport bring in ex-Man City academy winger Grimshaw


National League side Southport have signed former Manchester City academy winger Sam Grimshaw.

The 22-year-old joined Altrincham after leaving the Etihad Stadium before dropping into lower levels of non-league football.

"Sam has been recommended to us. He has pace and can go on the outside which adds to our squad," boss Dino Maamria told the club website.external-link
