|Kyle Brownhill has joined Hyde|
Brownhill joined the Clarets last summer from Stockport, the club who consider us to be their fiercest rivals. He joined the development squad as a left back but was released just before the end of last season.
He's been on trial at Hyde and just three days ago played against his old team mates in a pre-season game at Ewen Fields. Today he became one of seven signings they announced ahead of their season in the Vanarama Conference North, where they kick off with a home game against Oxford City.
Evans too was with Burnley for just a year having been released by our local neighbours Blackburn. He made his debut for the club in a pre-season game at Padiham whilst on trial before winning a one year deal at Turf Moor with the development squad.
He, like Brownhill, was released before the end of last season and has been training with Southport in pre-season, impressing manager Martin Foyle who told their official site: "Micah has trained well in the pre-season, he will offer a great deal in variety of areas for us and I am delighted he has agreed to join us."
He's expected to make his competitive debut for them when they kick off their new season next Saturday with a home game against Forest Green Rovers.
