Former Celtic Defender Joins Silkmen

Macclesfield Town have announced the signing of former Celtic defender Josh Thompson.

The 26-year-old joins the Silkmen following the end of a spell with National League North new boys Southport.

Thompson began his career with our neighbours Stockport where after breaking through in to the first-team as a teenager he made the move to Scottish giants Celtic in the summer of 2009.

He would make eighteem appearances for Celtic, scoring 3 goals before returning to England to have spells with the likes of Rochdale, Peterborough United and Chesterfield on loan before permanent moves to Portsmouth and then Colchester.

He left Colchester in October 2014 and after a brief spell with Tranmere signed for Southport in the summer of 2015.

Thompson played a key role in helping Southport avoid relegation during the 2015/16 season and was made club captain after the arrival of Steve Burr as Southport manager early on in the 2016/17 campaign.
