Farsley Celtic have made their first summer signing, as Adam Lakeland has added goalkeeper Elliot Wynne to the squad for the upcoming campaign.
Wynne has made the switch from fellow National League North side Altrincham.
Lakeland was pleased to get the deal over the line, as he said: “I’m delighted that Elliot has joined us, becoming our first signing of the close-season.
“I sat down with the staff at the end of the season and we highlighted the need to strengthen our goalkeeper department to add further competition for places. Kyle was excellent for us last season and is a top young keeper, and in (Mark) Bowers we have a very experienced and popular individual – albeit at the back end of his career.
“We spoke to several goalkeepers, as we do when looking to strengthen any area of the group, but the enthusiasm, hunger to play and desire to continue developing was evident to see in Elliot and I’m really pleased that he has joined us.
“He played a number of games for Altrincham at the beginning of last season so has some experience of the National North which is important, as well as a strong presence, agility and technical qualities which fit the attributes we look for in a goalkeeper.
“Whilst we have always had a small squad in my time at the Club, we have players who can be utilised in several positions which gives us competition for places throughout the team.
“Having completed the signing of Elliot, we now have two top young goalkeepers who will be challenging for the number one shirt and that healthy competition will help both of them improve.”
