Kelsey Mooney says joining Stanley was an “easy decision” after penning a two-year contract at the Wham Stadium.

25-year-old Mooney came through Aston Villa’s youth ranks and had a loan spell at Cheltenham during the 2018/19 campaign.

The forward went on to have stints at Hereford, Scunthorpe United and Leamington before joining Boston United last summer, scoring 16 goals as Ian Culverhouse’s men won promotion.

He told the club website: "As soon as the opportunity arose, it was one of those things. It's an easy decision and then obviously I've come here and met the gaffer and everyone, and it's just swayed me.

"I had to speak to Ian Culverhouse and he was brilliant with me. He was understanding that the opportunity doesn't come around that often to go back to the Football League, so I'm delighted.

"I'd say I'm a traditional number nine, a handful to play up against - a centre-half will know he's been in a game - and score goals."

Manager John Doolan added: "He looks like a footballer straight away, looks like a number nine, looks like a striker you can play up to. There's still more to come from him, and that's what we're going to work with.

"We're going to get him better from a tactical point of view so I'm really looking forward to working with him, and I'm just so happy that we've got that one in.

"Kelsey is his own man, his own player, but he does remind me so much of Colby Bishop. I'm not putting any pressure on Kelsey but I can see potential there."
