News > Double Transfer Swoop For Penistone!
We’re delighted to have captured two new players at this stage of pre-season.
We have to remind ourselves again that holding onto the squad we have had is great testament to the players, management and the whole club - we know we’ve players who could play higher - they’ve chosen to stay!
We caught up with a manager Ian Richards who started with some pre-season thoughts, “We’ve had a great start to pre-season. Players attending with excellent attitudes, work ethic and high levels of quality and intensity. All of last season’s players have returned as we’ve previously shared with three new additions”
So, to the new lads who have all been with us from the outset of pre-season and impressed enough to have signed over the last week or so.
First up is Alex O’Keefe who joins us from local North West Counties side Shelley.
Ian Richards added, “Alex O’Keefe is a left sided attacker who joins us from Shelley after impressing for them after joining in January from Ossett United. This included winning the NWCFL player of month for February. He has good pace, quick feet and will give us extra balance and width on the left”.
Next up is Charlie Baird who has joined us following two years in the USA.
Ian Richards added, “Charlie Baird joins us after returning from the states earlier this year. He is a player who impressed against us when he was at Worksop Town prior to moving to the USA. A quick, strong, technically good striker whom will continue to develop with us.”
Both lads will be without doubt looking to impress further to get that shirt come the beginning of competitive football in September.
Welcome to Penistone Church Alex & Charlie!
We will confirm any further transfers in the coming days as and when we receive the final required paperwork.
