Salford City are delighted to announce the signing of striker Matt Green from League Two Lincoln City.
Green, 31, has signed a two-and-a-half year deal at The Peninsula Stadium and joins us ahead of a busy winter schedule after 18 months with The Imps.
Prior to that he has played at Mansfield Town, where he won the then-named Conference in 2012-13 and finished as the league’s top scorer with 25 goals, as well as spells with Birmingham City and Oxford United where he also won promotion from the Conference, via the play-offs in 2009-10.
With playing time limited at League Two leaders Lincoln this season, the forward feels the time is right for a new challenge.
“It’s a refreshing challenge for me and I’m really looking forward to getting started, meeting my new team mates, and hopefully being part of a promotion winning team.
“It would have been quite easy for me to stay at Lincoln and not get the game time that I would have liked to, so that would have been the easy thing to do but I’m a very ambitious lad and I saw a great opportunity at Salford City and I’m really looking forward to getting started.
“There’s a very good squad here already so I’d just like to add to that, the lads have been doing brilliantly this season, I know it’s been very tight at the top with points and I’m just hoping I can add to what the lads have done so far and get behind them.
“The gaffer’s told me how good the lads are and how tight the team is, so I’m hoping to adapt to that pretty quickly and help us get those points on the table that we need, especially over the next coming weeks because we’ve got some really tough fixtures coming up.
“Ambition is totally, 100% promotion, that’s what I’ve come here for this season.”
We would like to welcome Matt and his family to the club, and we wish you a successful stay!
