Malbon Coup for Eccleshall
North West Counties League Division One South club Eccleshall have pulled off something of a coup by signing well-known local striker Anthony Malbon.

The 30-year-old started his career with Port Vale but was released in November 2010 after making 3 first team appearances and promptly joined Leek Town after previously being on loan to them.

 

He then spent time switching regularly between Leek and Newcastle Town before finally settling at the latter in the summer of 2011 where he found his shooting boots and scored 30 goals for them.

 

He signed for Kidderminster Harriers an initial fee of £7,000 in January 2012 and became an instant hit with the fans when he scored on his debut at Alfreton Town and then went on to grab a further 7 goals in his first season at Aggborough.

 

The following term he did even better with 20 goals in just over 40 games but then, following a major injury when he was airlifted to hospital, he only made 28 starts to score just 7 goals and left Harriers in June 2014 for Stalybridge Celtic and then joined his local side, Kidsgrove Athletic

 

He went on to become Kidsgrove’s record goalscorer with 147 before moving to Hanley Town in March 2022, helping them to win the Midland League title and promotion to the Pitching In Northern Premier League.
