City of Liverpool FC are delighted to announce the signing of MJ Monaghan from Runcorn Linnets.

The talented attacking midfielder is well known on the local Non League scene, and brings a wealth of experience having represented Warrington Town, Marine, Burscough and Witton Albion amongst others.

The former Prescot Cables star joined Linnets in the summer and has also previously represented National League side Telford United.

MJ also had a spell playing in Australia for Corio Soccer Club before returning to the UK, he then signed for Witton in 2019.

Monaghan will bring an eye for goal and creativity to an in-form City of Liverpool and has impressed against the Purps when at Cables, scoring against his new side in the 2019-20 season.

Purps manager Michael Ellison is delighted to get his man, explaining, “We tried to get MJ in the summer but couldn’t manage to get him in, so when the opportunity came to get him in we jumped at it.”

“He’s got a wealth of experience at this level, he will be a great addition to the squad and certainly give us more options at the top end of the pitch.”

“I’m looking forward to working with him”, Ello concluded.

We are sure all Purps will join us in welcoming MJ to the club.
