This Weeks New Signings

Nick Spooner has wasted no time in adding to his squad as he has brought in three new faces in time to face Basford today.

Defender Javid Swaby-Neavin has joined us on a month’s loan from National League side FC Halifax Town. The 20-year-old started his career at Oldham Athletic, where he had loan spells at Ashton United and Radcliffe.

He joined FC Halifax in August, initially on a short term deal but has since had that extended and has been on the bench numerous times for the Shayman this season.

Midfielder Sam Peplow has also joined the Tigers on a one month loan deal from Championship side Huddersfield Town.  Sam joined Huddersfield Town from Manchester United ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The youngster, who was born in Leigh, has been a regular for Town’s Under-17s since joining and signed a new deal in the summer.

The final signing is centre forward Eddie Brown from North West Counties Division One South side Wythenshawe Amateurs.  Brown came through the ranks at Bolton Wanderers under the guidance of Nick and Gavin.  Brown made 10 appearances for the Wanderers first team before his season was cut short by a torn hamstring.

He was released the following summer and went on to have a brief spell at FC United of Manchester after returning from injury, before joining Wythenshawe where he has scored 17 goals in 28 appearances this season to help them to fourth in the table.

Welcome Javid, Sam and Eddie
