Evo-Stik League North club Ossett Albion have pulled off something of a coup by signing Gibraltar international striker Adam Priestley from Evo-Stik League Premier neighbours Farsley Celtic.

Priestley returned to Farsley in July for a third time following his switch from Alfreton Town, where he played Vanarama National League North football last season.

Originally with Leeds United, York City and then Sherburn White Rose, Priestley first signed for the Celts at the start of the 2012/13 season from Garforth Town and scored 21 goals in that campaign.

The goalscoring exploits led to a short spell with then National League North side Guiseley AFC, before he returned to Throstle Nest midway through the season.

He scored a further 22 goals for the Celts before moving to Shaw Lane AFC in 2015.

He made twenty starts for Alfreton last season and had a short spell on loan at Frickley Athletic towards the end of the campaign.

Priestley also has thirteen caps for Gibraltar, his international team of birth.

He made his full debut for the country when Gibraltar faced Slovakia in November 2013 and was involved in the National sides UEFA 2016 Qualifying campaign when he came up against Poland in his first competitive appearance for his country.
