Evo-Stik League Premier club Whitby Town manager Chris Hardy has pulled off a second impressive signing today when he struck a deal to sign proven goalscorer John Campbell on a two-year contract from Ebac Northern League First Division side Newcastle Benfield.
Campbell, 28, follows Hardy’s signing of experienced defender Simon Ramsden and also has vast experience in the non-League game.
The forward, who started his career as a junior at Newcastle United and Manchester City, earned his Football League move after a fine run of form at Jarrow Roofing, scoring 24 goals in nineteen games.
He went on to gain experience in the Football League and National League, appearing for Oxford United and Torquay United.
His signing comes after several months of hard work by the Blues’ management team to find a striker.
Campbell will go straight into the squad for tonight’s trip to Lancaster City, along with Ramsden.
