BANGOR City have signed 33-year-old Michael Higdon, a striker with previous experience in both the English and Scottish Football Leagues.

The Liverpudlian began his career with Crewe Alexandra's youth system and, after being converted from a midfielder to a striker, made 81 appearances for the Railwaymen scoring 10 goals. Higdon's most famous moment for Crewe came against Coventry City in the last game of the 2004/5 season where he scored the winning goal to keep Alex in the Championship.

He joined Falkirk on a free transfer in 2007 and scored twice on his debut against Gretna, also scoring the winning goal to save the club from relegation. Hidgon moved to St Mirren in June 2009 and, in December, scored with a spectacular long-range strike against his former club Falkirk, much to the delight of the home fans. After notching a total of 18 goals in 16 appearances for St Mirren, he signed for fellow SPL side Motherwell and hit 40 goals from 72 appearances.

Higdon ended 2013/13 with 26 league goals to finish as the league's top scorer and was voted PFA Scotland players' player of the year. In July 2013, Higdon signed a two-year contract with NEC Nijmegen and scored 14 times from his 32 appearances, returning to England to join Sheffield United in August the following year. He scored on his debut against Bristol City but the Blades cancelled his contract in February this year after a loan spell with Oldham Athletic and he joined Tranmere Rovers.
