Cranston on board as Moors continue eye-catching recruitment drive

Solihull Editorial 11th Aug, 2020   0

LEFT-BACK Jordan Cranston has become the latest addition to Jimmy Shan’s Solihull Moors squad ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

The 26-year-old has signed for an undisclosed fee from League Two outfit Morecambe – penning a two-year deal.

Cranston spent his early career with Wolverhampton Wanderers and secured his first professional contract with the Molineux club.

He played locally with Nuneaton and Hednesford before moving on to Notts County in 2014/15.

Since then, Cranston has played his football at Lincoln City, Gateshead and Cheltenham Town where he became a National League winner in 2015/16.

The defender signed for Morecambe in 2018 and went on to make 54 appearances – scoring four times including the 2018/19 goal of the season.

Cranston said: “I’m pleased I’m finally here now, it’s been a busy period. When I heard the first bit of interest from the club it tempted me to move back home.

“At the moment, the club is a really good fit for me and that’s what tempted me to come here.

“I’m here to try and get in the team and help the team where they need to get to and that’s in the Football League.”

Manager Shan added: “Jordan has been on top of our recruitment list for some time. I am really pleased to get this one over the line.

“He is a player with vast experience and another in our changing room who has won this league.

“Jordan is an offensive full-back who has really good end product in the final third. He will add pace and athleticism.”
