THACKLEY have taken advantage of Yorkshire Amateur's pre-season troubles to sign a key defender.

Changes behind the scenes have seen the majority of Ammers players who were there this summer depart, with the latest being centre-half Connor Bell.

He has joined the Dennyboys ahead of their FA Cup extra preliminary round clash at home to Ramsbottom United today.

Bell is the latest new face to join Thackley, after Amir Berchil and Prince Attakorah came in last weekend.

Meanwhile, Eccleshill United have raided a fellow Bradford club to bring in attacker Matthias Britton from Albion Sports.
