Davies bags Partridge to boost squad

MANAGER Mike Davies has responded to a deepening injury list at Park Hall by signing former Liverpool and Irish Under-21 midfielder Richie Partridge.

The 29-year-old Dubliner, who started his career as a trainee with Liverpool, has scored 13 goals from 154 Football League appearances.
Partridge suffered many injuries during his spell at Anfield and failed to make a Premier League appearance, but played in three League Cup ties including an 8-0 demolition of Stoke City in November 2000.
In a loan spell with Bristol Rovers, he made six appearances and scored a goal against Wrexham, but then spent the whole of season 2002/3 on loan at Coventry City, where he was voted fans' player of the season.
Released by Liverpool, Partridge signed for Sheffield Wednesday on a free transfer in July 2005 but failed to hit a consistent run of form, subsequently joining Rotherham the following June.
He played 36 times for the Millers but was released at the end of the season and signed for Chester, where he enhanced his reputation as a lively winger with an eye for goal, most notably after scoring two very well taken goals in the Seals' 2-1 win at Stockport County.
Following City's relegation from the Football League, Partridge joined Milton Keynes Dons on a one-year contract and, following a loan spell with Kettering Town, spent the final six months of last season at Stockport.
A former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, Partridge is the brother-in-law of Michael Owen and gained a first class degree in physiotherapy at the University of Salford, where is now studying for a Masters degree in Football Rehabilitation.
