FC United confirm three more summer signings

FC United confirm three more summer signings

We are delighted to announce that Luke Ashworth, Liam Dickinson and Jack Banister have all signed ahead of the new season.

Centre-back Ashworth returns for his second spell at the club, after spending last season at Stalybridge Celtic - where he played over 50 games for the club and was a mainstay in their backline.

Experienced striker Liam Dickinson, who also played a key part at Stalybridge Celtic last season as their top goal scorer, has also come on board to add more depth to our forward line.

Winger Jack Banister, who was on trial during the summer, has impressed during his short time at the club and looks set to be another strong addition to the squad.

A delighted Tom Greaves spoke on his latest arrivals: “Liam will bring something completely different to the other forwards at the club and is the type of striker that FC have been lacking in recent years, he’s got plenty of experience in the football league and has scored and made goals for others wherever he has played. His ability to get hold of the ball and bring others into play is superb and he will be another great attacking option for us”.

On the returning Luke Ashworth, the gaffer said: “Luke is another old face I was keen to bring back to the club, not only for his consistent performances at the back he’s a threat going forward from set pieces which is something we lacked last season. Luke has plenty of experience in this league and I’m delighted to have him back on board”.

He added: “Jack is a player we’ve kept tabs on for a while and after impressing in trial and preseason games Jack is a player we have high hopes for, his turn of pace his skill and his eye for goal will certainly be a great asset to us and will get the fans on their feet”.

We now travel to fellow fan owned club Scarborough Athletic away tomorrow (Saturday 21 July) as part of our next pre-season game (kick-off 3pm).
