Development Squad Bolster Defensive Options with Signing of Kris Owens
The left-back, who can also operate on the left-wing, signs a short-term deal with the Development Squad until the end of the season.
The former Liverpool youngster first appeared for his hometown team at Under-9 level, before departing last summer and trialing at a number of EFL clubs.
Owens could feature for the Development Squad in their fixture tomorrow afternoon against MK Dons, where a win could take Chris Hargreaves side top of the Central League South standings.
Speaking today about the signing of Owens, Chris Hargreaves said, " We are delighted to have Kris on board.
"He has a strong football pedigree, from his time at Liverpool and we are looking forward to working with him between now and the end of the season, taking a closer look at him to see what he can offer to the playing squad within the Development Squad going forward."
