SILSDEN have made a couple of additions to the already strong squad that they have retained from last season.

Antony Brown joins from Bradford side Eccleshill United after netting eight goals in 16 appearances in the 2019/20 campaign.

In the past, the forward has had spells at Brighouse Town, Halifax Irish, Nostell Miners Welfare and Campion.

Jake Thompson, who was playing at Toolstation North Counties East League Premier Division rivals Liversedge last season, is the second player brought in by Cobbydalers boss Danny Forrest.

The rapid winger has also spent time at Eccleshill, after he was released from Huddersfield Town's academy in 2017.

Thompson said: "I am delighted to have signed for Silsden AFC. I have been made to feel very welcome from all the staff and players. I am very happy to be here.

"I can't wait to work hard for the club and help us push on this coming season.

"The manager has high standards here and with the talent we have already in the squad, I am excited to see what we will achieve this season."

Brown added: "I am really happy to be signing for Silsden for the upcoming season. I can’t wait to work hard for the team and see if we can progress from last season.

"I have been made to feel very welcome by everyone at the club and look forward to getting out there with the lads. The sooner the season starts the better."

Forrest added: "I am delighted to get both lads on board, they have been on our radar for some time.

"Jake is an exciting winger and Ant is a striker with bags of quality. Both have done well at this level and I’m sure our supporters will enjoy watching them play.

"Even during our initial conversations, both players showed a real desire to be with us and I am really pleased we have been able to attract players of this calibre."
