Craig Elliott, manager of Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North club Ossett Town, has signed six…..
….players from his promotion-winning team at Glasshoughton Welfare.
Following him from Leeds Road are ex-Bradford City and Frickley Athletic goalkeeper Ben Saynor, right-back Anthony Lloyd, who has previous experience with Huddersfield Town, York City and Guiseley, left-back or midfielder Josh Corbett, who was originally on the books at Sheffield United, former Frickley and Ossett Albion attacker Andy Catton, forward Nathan Dixon – once on the books at Grimsby Town – and midfielder Lee Bennett, who is another who has been at Frickley.
Elliott said: “I am delighted that these players have followed me to Ossett Town. They all made a huge contribution to the success we achieved at Glasshoughton and I hope that that success will continue here.”
Elliott has also secured the signature of central midfielder Olly Hotchkiss.
Hotchkiss is a dynamic midfielder who was a professional at Leeds United and went on loan to Mansfield Town in 2009 but suffered serious injury which curtailed his season.
He later returned to the Stags on a more permanent basis and then had a couple of seasons with Ossett`s league rivals Garforth Town.
