Sheffield shore up striking options

Sheffield FC have announced the signing of striker Steven McDonnell from Worksop Town.

McDonnell was most recently enjoying his third spell with Northern Premier League East Division side Worksop Town.

The forward finished the 2021/22 season with the Tigers as their highest goalscorer, scoring 18 goals in 42 appearances - his most prolific season to date.

As a result of his achievement, McDonnell claimed Worksop's Player' Player of the Year award and Media Player of the Season award.

During the 2018/19 season, his goalscoring abilities helped Worksop to claim the Northern Counties East League title and cup double, embarking on an incredible 22-game winning streak.

McDonnell has also played for Maltby Main, Retford United and Belper Town in the past.

Sheffield manager Ryan Cresswell is delighted with his new acquisition.

"[McDonnell] is a player I've been interested in bringing to The Club as soon as I walked through the door," he said.

"His work rate is infectious to others and he knows how to win at this level."
