Lancaster City Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Richard Baker!
The attacking midfielder spent 2017 with FC United of Manchester and Curzon Ashton.
Baker began his career at Manchester United before joining an array of pro clubs, including Preston North End, Bury and Oxford United.
Last season, He made 10 appearances in the National League North for Curzon Ashton, scoring two goals.
Manager Phil Brown was excited to welcome the new midfielder to Giant Axe.
“Richie’s an attack-minded player. He carries a threat and has an eye for goal. He’s very good on the ball and tactically astute. Richie can play off the front or in a deeper midfield role. He’s versatile, which is really important to me as we won’t be carrying a large squad this season. It’s vital we have flexibility within the group. He’s another target secured and I’m sure the fans will enjoy watching Richie play.”
Everyone at the club would like to welcome Richie and hope for a successful spell at Giant Axe!
