Alty Pick Up Ex-Tiger
 
 
 
 

Blue Square Bet North club Altrincham have announced the signing of former Hyde FC defender Gianluca Havern.

Havern, 24 and born in Gorton, Manchester, spent his early footballing days at Stockport County where he was captain of their under-18 side.

Whilst at County he went on loan at Radcliffe Borough and Ashton United, before making his senior County debut in May 2008 - a game in which he also scored.

 Released by County in January 2009, he briefly joined Mansfield Town, before returning to Stockport.

He left Edgeley Park again at the end of August 2010 and joined Mossley before returning to Ashton United on a more permanent basis.

By June 2011, he had signed for Hyde, where he was a key member of their championship-winning side last season.

Alty boss Lee Sinnott said: “Luca ticks all the boxes and is a very important signing for us, from a positional point of view.

“Like our other signing from Hyde, Danny Hall, he knows what it takes to get out of this league, and while he is still learning his trade, he made over thirty appearances for Hyde last season, which says something about him.

“He knows Danny very well, and while they didn’t always play alongside each other last season, you can tell they complement each other. He signed for us at 6 o’clock last night and was training with us an hour later, which was great. It was clear straightaway they seemed to know automatically what the other was doing. The understanding was there for everyone to see, and that is always important in any partnership.

“Before Luca’s arrival, we were looking at bringing in three or four new faces, so we haven’t finished yet. Work is still being done on that, and it’s my hope that two or three will be at the back.”
