Determined to keep battling to avoid the drop from the Blue Square Bet North, Droylsden have added two more players…..

…..to their squad following from the earlier loan signings of Luke Gallagher and Jason Gilchrist from Burnley.

Arriving at the Butcher`s Arms are former Manchester City and Northern Ireland international midfielder Jeff Whitley and striker Tyron Sealey.

Whitley, now 34, has been battling alcohol and drug addictions in recent years and now delivers talks on the subject.

He started his career with Manchester City and went to make over 120 appearances for the Blues, along with loan spells with Wrexham and Notts County.

He transferred to Sunderland in August 2003 after being released by City at the end of the previous season.

He played sixty-eight times for the Black Cats before moving to Cardiff City in 2005.

He had loan spells out at Stoke and againt at Wrexham before joining the Dragons on a more permanent basis in January 2008, but was released at the end of the 2008/09 season following relegation to the Conference Premier.

Since then he has had short stints with Woodley Sports and Northwich Victoria.

Sealey joins the Bloods from Tameside neighbours Mossley, having signed for the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North outfit from North West Counties League side Irlam in January.

London-born Sealey, 23, began his career at Stevenage, progressing to the first-team in the 2006/07 season.

He then had spells with Maidenhead United, Hitchin Town, Harrow Borough, Slough Town, Ebbsfleet United, Tooting & Mitcham United, Bedfont Town and Beaconsfield SYCOB.

Prior to the current season he had an extensive trial with Southend United, which included playing against a full strength West Ham side before taking up a place at University in Manchester.

He joined Stockport Sports early in the campaign but moved on to Irlam in November.
