Gannon Makes First Signing

Jim Gannon has made his first signing since returning to Stockport County... manager, bringing Obi Anoruo to Edgeley Park from Vanarama National League North rivals Gloucester City until the end of the season.

Twenty-four-year-old, Nigerian-born Anorou started his career as a youngster at Liverpool, before coming through the ranks at Wrexham where he enjoyed a prolific spell in the youth team, scoring 29 goals in twenty-two games.

Anoruo was a product of the Liverpool Academy, after being raised in Liverpool since the age of six, and many felt he was unlucky not to be kept on after breaking his ankle as a schoolboy, but Brian Little stepped in to offer him a two-year scholarship.

He scored 17 goals during a loan spell at Vauxhall Motors and joined Colwyn Bay in June 2014 after being on loan at Stalybridge Celtic.

Anoruo was one of the top goalscorers in the National League North last season, scoring 19 for Colwyn Bay, despite their relegation. He was named as Colwyn Bay Directors' player of the season for the 2014/15 campaign before joining Gloucester in May 2015.

He will be available for Tuesday night's trip to Harrogate Town.
