We welcome a new face to the first-team squad this week. Callum Nicholas – a midfielder – joins up after leaving Irlam FC recently. Good to have you here with us at 1874, Cal. Here’s to a long and productive stay.
There is also positive news to report from our U21’s solid start to their campaign. Two players have been training with, and have registered on first-team forms. Jacob Hamman and Isaac Noble could have potential involvement in coming weeks.
Encouraging signs on the injury front too. Jack Marrow and Lucas Weir are back in training and should feature in upcoming games. Harry Cain is still a good few weeks away but it’s been great to see him at matches recently.
We can also confirm a number of dual registration agreements; Ethan Brough has been featuring for Ashton Athletic in the NWCFL over the last few weeks. A similar arrangement ended with Barnton in September. Ethan of course made his debut for the first-team away at City of Liverpool last week.
Dimeji Willan has joined up with Alsager Town following their management change recently. Harry Walker, a defender who featured in pre-season and represents our U21’s has also signed for Alsager.
We pass on our best wishes to players leaving the squad. Aaron Smith has joined Atherton Collieries in the league above. Lee Jackson has switched to the level below with Macclesfield FC. We thank both lads for all their efforts in green.
