VAUXHALL Motors have bolstered their squad with the signing of an FA Youth Cup winner.
Huyton-born Michael Burns, 23, played for Liverpool in their 2007 Youth Cup success over Manchester United.
He failed to graduate into the first-team ranks at Anfield and moved to Bolton, where he was a regular member of their reserve team.
A spell with Carlisle United followed before Burns dropped into the non-league ranks with Stafford Rangers and Newport County.
The former England Under 16 international, who can play in defence or midfield, has moved to Vauxhall after spending the last year with Guiseley.
Airbus UK Broughton have swooped for their seventh player from Northwich Victoria.
Wingmakers boss Andy Preece has gone back to his old club once more to sign his former captain Ian Kearney.
The 25-year-old centre-back was a key part of the Vics side which pushed Chester FC all the way for the Northern Premier League Premier Division title last season.
A big character both on and off the field, the former Witton Albion defensive linchpin scored seven goals in 36 starts in 2011-12 and was being tracked by a host of clubs on either side of the border.
But Kearney was keen to follow in the footsteps of Kyle Armstrong, Michael Roddy, Tom Field, Jordan Johnson, Ryan Wade and Chris Budrys in swapping troubled Vics for ambitious Airbus.
He has penned a two-year deal with the Airfield outfit after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.
