Gan­non fi­nally cap­tures Bo­han

Stockport Express - - Sport -

COUNTY moved to bol­ster the ranks at Edge­ley Park, with the ad­di­tion of strong mid­fielder Bo­han Dixon on a one-year deal on Mon­day.

Dixon, 27, was a main­stay in AFC Fylde’s Na­tional League North ti­tle win­ning side last sea­son, im­press­ing against The Hatters in both fix­tures dur­ing the 2016/17 cam­paign.

The gan­gly mid­fielder was sub­ject to in­ter­est by Gan­non – who worked with Dixon pre­vi­ously at North­wich Vic­to­ria in 2014 – over the sum­mer, but the for­mer Staly­bridge man opted for FC Hal­i­fax Town in the Na­tional League.

Dixon scored six goals last sea­son as The Coast­ers romped to the ti­tle, and Gan­non ad­mit­ted that the chance to work with his for­mer num­ber 10 once more was too good to pass on.

“I have worked with Bo­han be­fore and he will be a tremen­dous ad­di­tion to the squad,” said Gan­non.

“He’s been in­volved in two ti­tle-win­ning sides re­cently and brings great ver­sa­til­ity to the at­tack­ing mid­field ar­eas, with the abil­ity to play in a di­a­mond or any­where across the front three.”

“I tried to sign him be­fore, when he was leav­ing Staly­bridge 18 months ago, so I’m de­lighted to be able to bring him to Edge­ley Park.”
