Stanley have added defender Rory McKeown to their squad ahead of tonight’s Checkatrade Trophy tie with Crewe Alexandra.

The 23-year-old has signed non-contract terms at the Wham Stadium.

Northern Ireland under 21 international McKeown started his career in the Ipswich academy before moving to Scotland to play for Kilmarnock.

He’s notched up over 100 appearances north of the border both for Killie and at his last club Raith Rovers as well as in a loan spell at Cowdenbeath.

He’ll take the Stanley squad number 15.
