Ahead of Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division club Garforth Town`s first pre-season friendly on Tuesday night, several new signings have been announced, along with several who have agreed to stay.

The following players so far have re-registered for 2015/16, having been on Garforth`s books last season – Ben Hunter, Jassim Alali, Daniel Harris, Andy Hawksworth, Mohamad Isam, Ashley Preece, Tim Robertson, Chris Simpkins, Sam Jones, Spencer Lund, Sinmi Oyebanji and Mark Simpson.

A few old faces also make a return to the club in Curtly Main-Wyatt and Dominic Smith.

Popular amongst supporters, powerful 22-year-old striker Main-Wyatt burst onto the scene in October 2013, scoring 9 goals in just eleven appearances.

He only made a handful of appearances last season but is aiming to be a more prominent feature in 2015/16.

Smith was amongst the eight goalkeepers featuring between the sticks during the 2013/14 season, making nine appearances for the Miners.

He now looks set to provide stern competition for first choice Ben Hunter.

Sam Clarkson, a 22-year-old left-sided centre-half, joins Town from Millmoor Juniors, while Garforth lad Matt Marshall is a 20-year-old left-sided striker who steps up to NCEL level from West Yorkshire League side Garforth Rangers.

Nathan Perks is a 22-year-old striker who joins from Glasshoughton Welfare.

Perks comes with goalscoring form at NCEL level having also played at AFC Emley and Pontefract Collieries.

Hertfordshire-based Daniel Pett is 21-year-old midfield player, while Daniel Monfredi is a strong and experienced 26-year-old centre-back formerly of Athersley Recreation and Sheffield Hallamshire League side Houghton Main.

Welsh-born centre-half Simon Rogers at 28 will add experience to Garforth`s defence.

He was previously with Sheffield Hallamshire League side Dodworth Miners Welfare.

Ross Shelton, a 24-year-old central midfielder, joins the club from Parkgate, while Thomas Smith is just 16, and the Selby-based midfielder was previously in Barnsley Academy.

Jack Williams, another formerly of Houghton Main, is a 21-year-old left-sided midfielder.

Commenting on the new season, head coach Graham Nicholas said: ā€œIā€™m delighted to retain the services of many of the current squad and with the new players that have come in. Really looking forward to next season.ā€
