Mansfield Town have today signed international central midfielder Keiran Murtagh on a free transfer from Macclesfield Town.

The 24-year old, a former Charlton Athletic trainee, has previously played for Yeovil Town, Wycombe Wanderers and Cambridge United, among others and also has 10 full internationals for Antigua and Berbuda under his belt on top of an Irish U17 appearance earlier in his career.

“The club seems very ambitious and wants to compete in the next division. These are exciting times here,” said Murtagh, speaking to the club’s website www.mansfieldtown.net

“The club’s ambition of wanting to push on and progress in the Football League was a big factor in me signing here.”

Murtagh is the third new addition at One Call Stadium during the close season, following the signings of Jamie McGuire and Paul Black.
