The Evo-Stik League Northern Premier

....begun building his side for the new season with the addition of five players who bring a mix of experience and youth to the squad ahead of the new campaign.
Anton Foster, who will celebrate his 30th birthday later this month, joins from Blue Square Bet North side FC Halifax Town and will bring a combative edge to the centre of midfield which he displayed to full effect in a loan spell with eventual play-off finalists Carlton Town last season.
He lists Buxton, Eastwood Town and Ilkeston Town amongst his previous clubs, in addition to a short spell with Sheffield FC when he made seven appearances at the start of the 2005/06 season.
Another experienced player returning to the club is striker Vill Powell, who moves from league rivals Goole AFC after helping himself to seventeen goals last season.
Club supporters will remember Powell well from his previous spell where he scored thirty-seven goals in 100 appearances from 2006 to 2009 and his habit of finding the back of the net shows no sign of slowing down which should add to Sheffield's threat this year.
Woodhouse has also added two youngsters who will also be looking to rattle the goals in this year.
Aaron Martin also joins from Goole and was described by the Vikings as "the find of the campaign".
Martin joined Goole from Baris Northern Counties East Leaguers Worksop Parramore and looks to be another great capture.
Another new face, if not a new name to Sheffield FC, is Ashley Worsfold, who looked like joining Club a couple of years ago but eventually moved from Goole to Parkgate instead.
Worsfold has been bagging goals for Parkgate in the NCEL Premier Division since then – twenty-five in fact last season - and the long-term target is another excellent addition to the squad.
The young, former Sheffield Wednesday striker joins his brother Aaron, who played for Sheffield`s reserves last season, and father Craig, who made around 200 appearances for Sheffield over five seasons in the early 1990s and still plays for the Over 35's, in maintaining the family connection to Sheffield FC.
Finally Chris Adam, who previously scored a dozen goals in forty-three appearances in Club colours, returns from Belper Town to work alongside Woodhouse in a player-coach role and will bring another good attacking option on the field in addition to his expertise of football at this level off it.
