With the first game of the season fast approaching, manager, Dave McGurk, has made 3 additions to the first team squad.
Goalkeeper, Riccardo Longato, a product of the Academy, has rejoined the Tigers for this coming season. Defender, Andy Hollins, who was previously at Colne and Southport before that, has signed on. And forward, Darius Palma, joins from Curzon Ashton.
Comments from the Gaffer
“Andy, or Trialist A as he’s been known has been with us all of pre season. We wanted him in early doors but he was contracted with Colne. He’s got all the attributes to be a big player for us and I’m sure our fans will be happy to see him sign after his performances in pre season.”
“Darius comes in from Curzon and is a player I’ve always liked. He’s quick, direct and will provide us with more options at the top end of the pitch. He’s another one who will excite the fans.”
“Riccardo is a brilliant lad and is going to be a top goalkeeper. His improvement under Chris has been plain to see. Craig may go out on dual registration and Riccardo will provide cover on matchdays.”
