Clitheroe defender Cole Lonsdale has signed a deal with the club.

The Blues have been busy securing the commitment of various personnel in the past week or so, led by player-boss David Lynch signing a long-term deal.

Left-back Lonsdale is the latest, having returned last summer to the club from Workington Town.

Speaking to the club website, Lynch said of the former Bolton Wanderers prospect: “He is now showing signs of becoming the complete full-back.

“His left foot is as good as anyone’s in non-league, and if he continues to keep the standards he demands of himself high in both training and games, I have no doubts he will get back to the level of football his ability warrants.”
