Sheron pens two-year Latics deal

Date published: 29 June 2022

A busy day at Boundary Park has continued with Latics having now signed defensive midfielder Nathan Sheron from Harrogate Town.

The 24-year-old, who began his career with six seasons at Fleetwood Town, will join Latics on a two-year contract on July 1.

A versatile player with the experience of featuring across the back-line, Sheron started 21 times in the latter part of the Sky Bet League Two season last term having become a regular in the Harrogate team.

Latics boss John Sheridan said: “Nathan is a very good player with excellent ability and I’m pleased to have signed a player like him who has still got a lot of potential to fulfill.

“Already in his career he has built up valuable experience in the EFL and lower down the pyramid so he knows the standards that we will have to meet as a team during the season ahead.

“It is vitally important that our team next year has a solid spine and a competitive spirit, and I know that all the players we have signed so far will make sure we have got just that.”

Just this morning (Wednesday), Latics captured winger Luke Burgess, also on a two-year contract.

Sheron started out in the youth ranks at Liverpool before a move to Fleetwood at the age of 16.

In total, he featured 36 times whilst at the Highbury Stadium, having also spent time on loan in the National League North with Chorley, Chester and Southport during his early days at the club.

After a host of first-team appearances for Fleetwood in League One during 2018/19, he spent a brief time at Walsall before playing in the Scottish Premiership with St Mirren.

The move is subject to the relevant FA and league approval.
