FC UNITED of Manchester striker Ben Deegan has joined New Mills AFC on a short-term basis.

The 23-year-old has scored 23 goals in just over a century of appearances for Evo-Stik Premier Division side FC United, and will be best remembered as being part of the side that defeated Rochdale 3-2 in last season’s FA Cup.

He also achieved cult hero status at Gigg Lane after saving a penalty against Northwich Victoria in April last year when he was forced to go in goal after regular keeper Sam Ashton had been sent off.
