Defender Scott Leather became the latest addition to the Victory Park squad when his arrival from Altrincham was announced earlier today.
He will join fellow new signing Adam Blakeman, Matt Challoner and Sefton Gonzalez at training when the players return for pre-season in June.
All the players from last season’s squad have been invited back for the new season.
So far only Mark Ross and James Dean had informed the club that they will not be returning. Ross has agreed to join Stockport County while Dean looks likely to drop into the Evo-Stik Premier Division.
Mark joined the club in the summer of 2010 from Leigh Genesis and made 252 appearances for the club, netting three times while James, who had a brief 1 match spell at the club in 2004 returned in 2013 from AFC Fylde and netted 53 goals in 134 games.
The club would like to wish both players all the very best for the future with of course the exception of when they are in direct opposition to ourselves!
