Portadown Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of former Stevenage & Glentoran full back Nathan Kerr on a 2 year deal.

22 year old Kerr, who has been capped by Northern Ireland at U16, U17, U19 & U21 level arrives at Shamrock Park hoping to provide competition in the full back positions.

Ports boss Matthew Tipton had the following to say on his recent acquisition

Nathan has a tremendous pedigree & has shown us over the last few weeks that he will be a valuable asset to us.

Pact with a great delivery he will provide competition for Greg Hall at right back as well as being able to play at left back

Nathan who has been out of action since picking up a bad injury in Glentoran’s Europa League Play-Off against Cliftonville in May 2019 had the following to say on signing for the Ports

Portadown seems like a great fit for me, it’s a young and hungry squad with lots of ambition and I’m here to add to that, after being out for over a year through injury I’m even more hungry and have a point to prove and I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead.

The fans can expect a lot of hard work and commitment from myself, I am an attacking full back who’s plays with a lot of energy.

My ambitions for the season are to pick up where I left off before my injury as I felt I was playing some of my best football and I hope to carry that on in a Portadown shirt and help push the team on to more success.
