Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division club Hyde United have announced their third set of signings this week.

The next three signings are Scott Spencer, who returns to the club, and local products George Riley and Pete Boyle.

Former Everton striker Spencer enters his second spell with the Tigers after re-joining from Stockport County.

Few players have enjoyed a more spectacular start to their Hyde career as Spencer.

With goals in each of his first nine appearances for the club, he netted 13 times by the end of September 2011, his eye-catching displays, including a four-goal haul against Corby Town, earning him a call up to the England C squad.

This resulted in him earning four caps, making him one of Hyde’s most prolific England C internationals, and has shown why Everton signed him as a 17-year-old from Oldham Athletic.

Unfortunately his career for the Toffees never took off, but he went on to gain Football League experience with loan spells at Yeovil Town and Macclesfield Town before signing for Rochdale on his release from Goodison Park in the summer of 2009.

Spells at Southend United and Lincoln City followed before Spencer turned down offers from elsewhere to sign for the Tigers in time for the 2011/12 season.

Having spent a short period on loan at FC Halifax Town, he spent a season at Stockport last year before returning to Ewen Fields in time for the the new season.

Riley is a bright prospect from the Hyde Academy and is a firm fans` favourite who signed for the Tigers in July 2013 after leaving the Port Vale Academy.

He made his league debut against Hednesford Town in October 2014 after several appearances in county cup competitions the previous season, and has made a big impact on the squad where he has become a first team regular, finishing the season with twenty-one appearances in all competitions.

Boyle is another product of the Hyde Academy. A talented striker, he arrived at Hyde from the highly regarded academy at Rochdale, and scored on his first-team league debut for the Tigers against Boston United in February 2015.

Boyle found the net a further 3 times at the end of the season over fourteen games in all competitions, including a memorable brace at Gainsborough Trinity to put Hyde into the lead after going two goals down.
