Curzon Ashton have confirmed the signing of striker Alex Samizadeh. 

The young Iranian forward, 19, joins the Nash having left Kilmarnock in the summer after spending last season in Scotland.

Samizadeh will be a familiar face for Nash fans having played for the club’s youth team during the 2014/15 season. He also made a sole first team appearance in a pre-season friendly away at Mossley in 2015, where he found the target, before attracting the attention of professional clubs.

After impressing in his time at Curzon, Alex signed for Championship side Bolton Wanderers in 2015 and made his professional debut the following year, coming on as a substitute away at Brentford.

Alex has previous experience of the National League North, having spent two months on loan at Chorley in 2016, scoring on his debut.

On the signing of Alex, manager John Flanagan commented: “We are delighted that we have finally managed to secure the signing of Alex. It appears he’s not had much luck with his move to Kilmarnock but it’s clear that the lad is desperate to play and score goals. His energy and appetite are a breath of fresh air.

“He is different to what we have got at present. He has a very low centre of gravity, he’s tenacious and doesn’t give defenders an opportunity to relax. I’m sure once he finds some match fitness he’ll have an excellent season.”
