Brewers land McGurk

5 August 2013

Burton Albion can confirm the signing of forward Adam McGurk on a two year contract; subject to paperwork.


The dynamic 24-year-old began his career as a youth player at Aston Villa before taking in a brief spell at Hednesford Town in 2010.


Having impressed for the Pitmen, the Northern Ireland U21 international moved to Prenton Park where he enjoyed a productive three year stint at Tranmere Rovers; scoring 12 goals in 55 starts.


McGurk joins the Brewers as a free agent following his release from Tranmere in the summer and last month scored for Skybet Championship side Birmingham City whilst on trial with the St. Andrews club.


McGurk commented: ‘The Manager has shown his desire to bring me to the club all summer and knowing that Burton were so keen to bring me in was certainly a factor in my decision.


‘Burton were perhaps unlucky not to get promotion last season and I am looking forward to getting to know the lads in the next few days and helping the club push on this year.’


Burton Albion Manager Gary Rowett added: ‘Adam is a player we have been keen on for a while and he has the attributes to add real quality to the squad.


‘He’s an exciting player and at an age where he can keep on improving. I’m not surprised that he received attention from clubs in higher divisions and I am delighted that we have been able to bring him to Burton.’
