Former York City, Barrow and Bradford Park Avenue striker Adam Boyes has joined Spennymoor Town ahead of the 2018/19 season.
Boyes, 27, becomes Jason Ainsley’s seventh signing of the summer following an influx of players at the beginning of July. The forward joined York City in 2008 and after making a quick impact in the first team, he won an England “C” cap as a substitute in a 4-0 win over Malta in February 2009.
He was also a member of the York squad that played in the FA Trophy Final that year, and made a total of 38 first team appearances for City, scoring three times before joining Scunthorpe United in the summer of 2009, reportedly for a six-figure fee.
Boyes made his Scunthorpe United debut in the League Cup in August 2010 but was released without making a further first team appearance in January 2011. Goal-laden spells with Boston United, Barrow, Guiseley and Bradford Park Avenue followed as Boyes established himself as one of non-league’s most prolific strikers.
After joining the club, a delighted Boyes said: “The negotiations have been going on for a long time, so I can’t wait to get started.
“As soon as I spoke to Jason I knew Spennymoor was the club for me as I know a few of the lads already here and it’s an ambitious club that wants to go up through the leagues.
“The past few years I’ve been on my own up front so hopefully me and Glen Taylor, who has scored a lot of goals over the years, can form a good partnership together.”
