Glossop North End have completed their first new signing of the summer – striker Mike Norton.

Norton has a wealth of non-league experience having started his non-league career at glossop north endWoodley Sports, then going on to achieve the unusual feat of becoming a legend at two clubs – he is revered at both Curzon Ashton and FC United of Manchester.

He was part of Tony Hancock’s promotion winning Woodley Sports team in 2003-04, scoring against the Hillmen in March 2004, before moving to Curzon Ashton and scoring more than 200 goals in 5 seasons, including scoring against Glossop North End in December 2006.

In 2010 he joined FC United and went on to score 93 times in 221 appearances as Karl Margison’s side made their rise up the leagues to the Conference North.

Inevitably, one of those goals was against Glossop; the opener in last year’s epic Manchester Premier Cup tie, which the Rebels won on penalties.

Norton returned to Curzon in November 2015, but has now decided to move on to Glossop
