Full-back Neil Ashton has joined Southport on a one-year contract after cancelling his deal at fellow National League side Barrow by mutual consent.

The 31-year-old made 22 league appearances last season and has been appointed vice-captain.

Ashton, who has previously played for Shrewsbury and Wrexham, joins former team-mate Ashley Grimes at Haig Avenue.

"He was always going to be my first-choice left-back," manager Andy Bishop told the club website.
