Connor Hampson has left Curzon Ashton after six seasons with the club to join National League North rivals Stockport County.

The left-back, who can also play in the centre of midfield, has been a stalwart for the Nash in recent seasons and was part of the team who secured back-to-back promotions for the Tameside Stadium outfit.

But Hampson has now accepted an offer to link up with Jim Gannon’s promotion-chasing side at Edgeley Park.

The 24-year-old joined Curzon as one of manager John Flanagan’s first signings in 2011 and has been an ever-present since.

Flanagan told the Curzon Ashton website: “I’d like to wish Connor all the best. He has been a great servant for the club.

“Ever since he was 16 and played for me at Mossley, he has been with me ever since. I can’t thank him enough for all of his efforts.

“The fact he missed a season with a horrific injury and came back even stronger is a true reflection of his character.”

Hampson had made 33 appearances for the Nash this season, with his final appearance for the club coming in last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat by Bradford Park Avenue.

In a statement, Curzon said: “Everyone at Curzon would like to put on record their thanks to Connor for the past six seasons worth of service and wish him all the very best with his new adventure.”
