Lancaster City manager Phil Brown has wasted little time in adding to his title-winning squad for the new campaign in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division.

Midfield duo Sam Bailey and Scott Harries have both signed for the Dolly Blues.

Sam Bailey

Bailey, well known to City fans, signs after a successful spell with former NPL First Division North rivals Kendal Town where he netted 17 league goals in their 2016/17 campaign.

The versatile player graduated from Bolton Wanderers’ academy has played in a number of positions across the pitch, predominantly in central midfield and the right wing.

Harries signs from new NPL Premier Division rivals Warrington Town.

The winger is quoted as being a long-term target for Brown and has had previous spells at AFC Fylde, Clitheroe and Northwich Victoria.

City can also officially confirm that both Jordan Connerton and Mike Hale have left the club for personal reasons.

Connerton, one of the most prolific strikers in the club`s history, has moved to Australia.

Hale could not commit to the increased time and travelling required in the new division.
