Blue Square Bet North club Droylsden have re-signed well-travelled forward Matthew Berkeley and goalkeeper Yannick Niate.

Berkeley, 25, was most recently with the Bloods` league rivals Colwyn Bay, having joined them in the summer from Workington, where he had been in his second spell at Borough Park.

He signed for Workington in March 2012 having completed a second stint with Hyde FC, who he rejoined in the summer of 2011 from Welsh Premier side The New Saints.

With over half a dozen different clubs to his name by the age of 24, plenty of managers have seen potential in Berkeley, and they include Lester Morris, the head coach of Saint Kitts & Nevis, who called him up for the Caribbean island nation’s World Cup qualifiers after a prolific start to the 2011/12 season at Hyde.

Berkeley has also turned out for Altrincham, Leigh Genesis and Mossley, having begun his career at Gretna.

The Bloods have also signed goalkeeper Yannick Niate from Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division basement outfit Kettering Town.

A towering 6’4” tall, Niate played for Red Star ’93, Lens, and Creteil-Lusitanos in his native France, and represented the Île de France.

Niate joined Haringey Borough when first moving to England, and then spent a year and a half at AFC Wimbledon, helping their reserves to success in 2011/12.

He signed as cover for Staines Town in August 2012, but also dual registered with Merstham before joining the Poppies earlier this season.
