Chris Neal, Salford City, The Peninsula Stadium
Chris Neal has spent the last two years at Fleetwood Town

SALFORD CITY are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Chris Neal on a two-year deal! 

The 32-year-old was released by Fleetwood Town at the end of the 2017-18 season, and now makes the move to The Peninsula Stadium.

Born in St. Albans, Neal started his career at Preston North End before a move to Shrewsbury in 2009 where he won promotion to League One. A move to Port Vale followed in 2012, where Neal again won promotion to League One before being released after another three seasons, and moving up to The Cod Army ahead of 2016-17.

After 25 league appearances in two years, Fleetwood decided not to renew Neal’s contract, however he does leave with a year’s supply of pizza after keeping a clean sheet against Leicester City in the FA Cup this season!

Now the 6’2 stopper is returning to The National League, which he won promotion from in 2007 while on loan at Morecambe.

Welcome to the club, Chris, we hope your stay is a successful one!
