ALAN Morgan has signed free agent Sam Ilesanmi who was with Tranmere Rovers, the club where the Llandudno manager has both played and worked as a coach in the youth set-up.

The Liverpudlian striker, who only took-up the game in 2011, made his debut for the Prenton Park outfit in the final game of the 2016/17 season away at Maidstone, netting the only goal of the game in a 1-0 victory. But he was one of six players released after defeat in May's National League play-off final defeat to Forest Green Rovers meant Tranmere missed-out on a return to the Football League.

"I've had an eye on Sam from working at Tranmere last season, I was trying to get him on-loan but to get him permanently this year is a really good acquisition for us," Morgan says.

"Sam played for us last night at Colwyn Bay and he showed by taking his goal really well that he's keen, and from what we've witnessed so far there's plenty more goals to come from him."

During his time with Rovers, Ilesanmi had loan spells with both Warrington Town and Glossop North End.
