Cambridge have signed former Macclesfield striker Joe Ironside for next season.

Ironside, 26, who began his career at Sheffield United before drifting into non-league football, scored seven goals in 36 appearances for Macclesfield last season.

“It’s a pleasure to be here and I can’t wait to get going,” Ironside told the Cambridge club website.

“I settled back into the Football League well last year, and although I would have liked to have scored more goals, I’m hopeful that can be the case this year.”

Cambridge head coach Mark Bonner said: “Joe is someone we have had our eye on for a while.

“His performances against us and throughout a tough season at Macclesfield showed a determined work ethic, and a good level of aggression and physicality.”
