Blackpool Football Club has agreed to sign Ben Garrity from Northern Premier League Premier Division side Warrington Town.
The 21-year-old arrives at Bloomfield Road on an 18-month contract which includes an option for a further year.
An all-action, goalscoring midfielder, Garrity has hit doubles figures for Warrington Town this term, having previously helped the Yellows to divisional play-off success last season.
Manager Simon Grayson said:
“Ben is a player who was flagged up to us several months ago and somebody we have monitored and scouted very closely ever since. He’s scored a good number of goals from midfield and we’re looking forward to him now continuing his development with us. He’s worked hard to reach this point and is determined to make the most of his chance in professional football.”
Ben Garrity said:
“I’m made up and buzzing to be here. I just want to start off, get my foot in the door and get involved with the lads. This is a full-time opportunity to play football now and I need to get my head down, get fitter, stronger and do everything I can to continue improving my game.”
