Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North club Mossley made a double signing as news came of the…
…..departure of last season’s leading scorer Sam Madeley.
Liam Boswell arrives from North West Counties League side Nelson.
Described as a speedy goalscoring wide midfielder, Boswell,18, has scored seven goals in sixteen appearances for Nelson this season having previously worked his way through the junior ranks at his home-town club Bury, earning a professional contract in 2012 before being released at the end of last season.
Talented hard working midfielder Dean Warburton, 23, has signed from league rivals and neighbours Curzon Ashton where he has made five appearances this season.
He was previously with Cheshire League side Knutsford FC, helping them to the league title in 2012/13.
Meanwhile, striker Madeley’s on-off relationship with Mossley now looks to be finally off.
Madeley was the Lilywhites’ top scorer last season as they reached the play-offs.
He then switched with manager Steve Halford to Ashton United in the summer, before being given the chance to return by new Mossley joint-bosses Peter Band and Lloyd Morrison when things didn’t work out at Hurst Cross.
But the player is believed to be on the verge of joining FBT Manchester League outfit Old Alts.
“It’s a shame Sam appears to have left us again,” said Band. “He scored twenty goals for us last season.
“We’d offered him an olive branch, but I think because he wasn’t catching of late due to the fine form of Danny Broadbent, Wayne Welbeck and Dougie Carroll, he’s not been seen for a few weeks and he isn’t answering his phone.”
