Another quality addition to the midfield area. The former Seaham and Blyth AFC captain is a box-to-box midfielder that will leave everything out on the pitch for the team and is a player that will certainly chip in with goals and assists throughout the season.

Local lad Paul is another product of Tyne-Met College. He was a member of the Northern Counties Championship winning squad with Northumberland Schools County and was also captain of the NFA representitive side last year. His performances last year attracted the attention of Sheffield United where he played twice for the youth team in victories over Hull City and Leeds Utd. Paul’s box to box and powerful style will no doubt propel him to be a fans favourite in time, especially coming from North Shields.

Josh is another product of Tyne Met Academy. His composed play and simplicity has impressed everyone. Left footed centre midfielders are quite a rarity and he gives that balance in those areas. Josh has a great range of passing and we expect him to progress into the first team set up permanently quite quickly at the rate he is currently improving.

The former West Allotment and Heaton Stannington forward joins the club with a good track record for the forward! Regan made sixty appearances for Allotment during his time at Allotment, scoring fifteen goals. Extremely pacy and skilful, defenders will not relish the sight of Regan bombing down the wing towards them.
Dan has represented the club in the FA Youth Cup and scored 4 goals as they reached the final qualifying round. A regular scorer for New Hartley Juniors he is looking to break through for next season.
