LIVERSEDGE have secured a real coup with the signing of experienced central midfielder Ross Daly.

The 31-year-old has played for a host of clubs, including Bradford (Park Avenue) and Thackley.

He started his career as a 16-year-old at the latter, spending four years there before moving on to play at a higher level.

As well as spending time at Avenue, Daly has played for Farsley Celtic, Hyde United and Scarborough Athletic.

While at Farsley, Daly was part of the Celts team which beat Ossett Town 4-2 in a dramatic play-off final to secure promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division in 2017.

Daly's previous club, Yorkshire Amateur, were battling with Sedge for promotion from the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division before the 2019/20 season was declared null and void, so this is a great signing for Jonathan Rimmington's side.

Rimmington's assistant Sean Regan, who used to manage Eccleshill United, was delighted with the signing.

On Twitter, he wrote: "Absolute class addition to the squad @Liversedge_FC and so glad that @dalesway_1989 and me are back working together, been a while since our @ThackleyAFC days. Another big signing this."

Daly is not the first player to join Sedge from the Ammers in the close season either. Defender Adam Field made the same move last week.

Field and Daly are just two of the signings Sedge have made in the past fortnight. Others include former Brighouse Town keeper Jordan Porter and prolific ex-Silsden striker Joe Gaughan.

In further good news, Sedge announced earlier this week that midfielder Joe Kenny was staying at the club for another season. He joins the likes of Oliver Fearon and Alfie Raw in signing new deals.
