FORMER Vauxhall FC manager Alvin McDonald has raided his old club for a second time to sign striker Nicky Young for an undisclosed fee.
Despite contacting the Pioneer three weeks ago to deny reports that he was looking at taking more Motormen to Northwich Victoria after snapping up goalkeeper Andy Ralph, McDonald has gone against his word to sign his son-in-law Young.
But Rivacre Park officials said that as part of the deal, McDonald has agreed that there will be no more approaches for anyone in the Vauxhall playing squad.
Young made his Vics' debut on Saturday but failed to impress as the Conference's bottom club crashed to a 4-1 home defeat against Woking.
The Young transfer is just one of 12 player moves since Owen Brown took the Rivacre Park hot seat at the start of this month.
Brown has released Steve Hilton, Neil Rigby, Gareth Hooper and Lee Kissock while John Norman, signed from Burscough at the start of the season, has this week announced his retirement.
Goalkeeper Matt Higgins' loan spell from Macclesfield Town expires after Saturday's game but the custodian is unable to play due to the two-week ruling for players who suffer concussion. As a result, Brown has brought in ex-Aberystwyth Town stop-per, Mike Kinsella, 25.
Former Telford and Southport defender Carl Macauley, who skippered Burscough to their FA Trophy success last season has arrived in a playercoach's role.
Much-travelled attacking midfielder Hugh McAuley, 26, who has turned out for Leek, Cheltenham, Kidderminster and Northwich, has also been acquired having been known to Brown from his time in Liverpool's youth teams.
Mancunian midfielder Paul Robertson, 31, most recently of Altrincham, brings experience to the squad having played for York City, Stockport County, Bury, Runcorn, Doncaster, Witton, Accrington Stanley and Barrow.
Meanwhile, former Vauxhall midfielder Carl Spellman has returned to the club from Kidsgrove.
Brown said: 'We needed to freshen things up and I believe that we have got a stronger all-round squad now than we had when I first arrived.'
