Unibiond Premier side Marine AFC have signed ex-Everton and Fulham midfielder Sean Doherty from Witton Albion.

Mariners manager Kevin Lynch says the 23-year-old can use his time at the club as a stepping stone to return to top level football.

"Sean can certainly get back to where he once was and we just want to give him the platform to do that," Lynch told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"He has played at some fantastic clubs and its a pleasure to have him here."

Doherty started his career in Everton's youth academy before moving to Fulham in July 2001 for an undisclosed fee.

Since leaving the Cottagers in 2005, he has played for Dutch side ADO Den Haag, Port Vale, Accrington Stanley, Belgian club Royal Antwerp and League of Ireland Premier Division side Sligo Rovers, before moving to Witton Albion in July 2009.

"Certainly Sean coming back to Marine will put him right in the shop window," continued Lynch.

"We're hoping while he is in the shop window he can produce the goods for Marine Football Club. This is a good stepping stone and I hope we can rise up together."
