A Weekend To Remember For Nathan Newall

We are delighted to announce that Nathan Newall has signed a new contract with the club.

It has been some weekend for the Academy Graduate who turned 18 on Friday and then made his First Team debut a day later coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw with Altrincham.

Baildon born Newall plays at left back but can also play on the wing and as a striker, Nathan showed his scoring talents in the academy’s 3-2 win at York City a couple of weeks ago with two goals.

Nathan featured in a few of our pre-season friendlies this campaign and has played for Frickley Athletic on a dual-registration deal winning multiple Man of the Match awards.

This has boosted his experience of senior football and he replaced Dylan Barkers in the second half at Nethermoor on Saturday for his Lions debut.

Congratulations Nathan!

Meanwhile we can confirm Tabish Hussain has joined Eccleshill United on loan.

The winger has just completed a loan spell with Yorkshire Amateur and has now signed up with the Northern Counties East Premier Division side for a temporary spell.

Tabish links up with former Lions players Ryan Toulson, Nicky Boshell, Ryan Hargreaves and Talent Ndlovu in a side managed by our former midfielder Lee Elam.

Good luck Tabish!
