Salford lad Liam Hogan is the club’s second new signing of the summer, joining from National League club Gateshead on a three-year deal.
Twenty-eight year old central defender Liam Hogan has signed for Salford City following a season in the National League with Gateshead (see the University of Salford’s interview with Liam here).
He started his career with Woodley Sports (now renamed Stockport Town) but left in 2010 to sign for then Northern Premier League Premier Division FC Halifax Town. At the end of his first season at The Shay Halifax were crowned champions and Liam went on to represent the club for two seasons at Conference North level.
In May 2013 Liam’s contract with The Shaymen expired and turned professional with then-League Two club Fleetwood Town. A loan spell with Macclesfield Town followed and he was transferred to Tranmere Rovers during the 2015-2016 season.
Last summer Liam moved to the North East, signing for Gateshead where he was appointed club captain before the start of the 2016-2017 campaign.
Primarily used as a central defender during his career, Liam can also operate at right-back and his quality and wealth of experience will be vital to Salford City’s 2017-2018 promotion push.
It’s a real return home for Liam who used to teach at St.Paul’s Primary School, next to the ground on Nevile Road.
On behalf of everyone at Moor Lane we’d like to welcome Liam to his home city club and trust that his time as an Ammie will be a happy and successful one.
