Evo-Stik League South club Frickley Athletic have signed defender Sam Liversidge from Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division side Worksop Town.
Liversidge was with Sheffield Wednesday as a scholar and first-year professional and also played for league rivals Sheffield FC and Evo-Stik Premier outfit Buxton.
Frickley manager Spencer Fearn told his club`s official Pitchero website: “We have signed a player of real quality and Sam will add even more competition for places within our squad.
“He is a very good centre-back and can play further up field if needed. He’s a strong character and it’s great news for us that he is now a Frickley player.”
Liversidge will go straight into the squad for Saturday`s fixture at Bedworth United.
