Stanley have completed the signing of goalkeeper Michael Kelly from MK Dons on a two-year deal.

The 27-year-old had spells at Shamrock Rovers and Bohemians among others before heading to England in 2022 to sign for Carlisle, where he was part of Paul Simpson's promotion-winning squad.

Kelly joined MK Dons last year and went on to make 20 appearances for Mike Williamson's side as they finished fourth in League Two and reached the play-offs.

He told the club website: "I'm delighted to get it done. I was part of the Milton Keynes Dons squad up here last year so I could see how good the fans are and how good the club is.

"John Doolan and Ged Brannan are putting together what looks like a good squad, and I think hopefully we can be up the right end of the table.

"There are really good people around the club and you can see that from the moment you walk in the building, so I'm just looking forward to it."

The Reds also signed Boston United forward Kelsey Mooney on a free transfer last week as John Doolan prepares for his first full season in charge.

The manager added: "Michael's played for MK Dons, who are a good side. If you play for them, you've got to be able to use your feet. Andy Dibble's done a lot of work on the keepers so he brought Michael to us.

"He is one of ours now, so we're pleased that we've got Michael over the line and we're looking forward to working with him.

"Michael's experience is great for the younger lads and he'll be good in the dressing room, that's for sure."
