Grant Black, manager of Evo-Stik League North club Ossett Town, have signed the experienced Emile Sinclair and Jack Mawson in time for today`s game against leaders Bamber Bridge at Ingfield.

Sinclair started this season with league rivals Scarborough Athletic, where he scored 4 goals and had six assists from five starts but left earlier this month.

The forward started his career at Nottingham Forest where he made fifteen appearances.

A successful period at Macclesfield Town followed before being bought by Peterborough United.

Thirteen goals in forty-seven appearances convinced then-League One side Crawley Town to pay £100,000 to take him to the checkatrade.com stadium.

In 2014 he signed for Northampton Town, winning the player of the month award.

A spell at York City, then in League Two, followed before moving into non-League football with Altrincham and Bradford Park Avenue.

Sinclair was impressed with Ossett when Scarborough visited the Flamingo Land Stadium in August, saying: “I though Ossett Town were unlucky not to get anything out of that game. The side played good football and created a lot of chances, something as a striker you can only ask for.

“From what I saw at that game, and from speaking to other people in the game, I believe a minimum requirement from this season would be a play-off place. As for myself I am keen to get back to playing. I had a couple of injuries now I want to have a good, consistent season of regular games and scoring regularly. I am keen to start enjoying my football again.”

Black was delighted to sign Sinclair, telling the club`s Pitchero website: “As soon as I heard he was available I was keen to see about his availability. He will add quality to the squad and competition for places too.”

Black was also delighted to get Jack Mawson, who he describes as “a strong forward who will suit our style of play”.

Black has been watching the striker since he played for Sheffield FC against Town in the Emirates FA Cup earlier this season, having joined Club from Toolstation Northern Counties East outfit Worsbrough Bridge Athletic in the summer.

Jack Mawson

Mawson was keen to sign once he knew of Black`s interest, saying: “Ossett Town have a great reputation and the good set of lads. Following on from last season it is a team that is hard to beat.

“I believe the squad is good enough to go up this season, more than capable. It’s an exciting time to be here, the support is great. I can’t wait to play in front of them”.
