Southport sign ex-Morecambe midfielder Charlie Joyce

Haig Avenue, home of Southport

Southport have signed midfielder Charlie Joyce following a successful trial spell at Haig Avenue.

Youngster Joyce, who was recently released by Morecambe, came on as a substitute in Southport's 4-0 win at Radcliffe Borough on Wednesday.

Steven Tames scored twice, with Shaun Whalley and Tony Gray also netting.

But striker Michael Bakare, who signed a one-year deal with the Sandgrounders last week and scored against Wigan reserves on Saturday, did not feature.
