Striker Newby is Morton new boy

Morton

Morton boss Davie Irons has moved to sign twenty-nine-year-old former Morecambe striker Jon Newby.

Newby, Morecambe's top scorer last season, was released by the Lancashire club in May.

Irons is pleased to have captured Newby, a player he scouted last season, who counts Bury, Huddersfield and Wrexham among his former clubs.

"We had him up for talks on Friday and just had to iron out a couple of things before we could sign him," said Irons.

"He's definitely got something. He's pacey and gets in behind defenders.

"He's not a hold-up player, but he's certainly quick," he added.
