Three more of Armthorpe Welfare’s squad from last season have committed to staying with Mike Carmody’s side for the forthcoming season.
The trio are goalkeeper Liam Copley, defender Danny Taylor and forward Gary Collier.
Copley first joined Welfare in July 2014 and has played on and off for the club in the last three years with appearances limited due to work commitments.
Taylor initially joined Welfare as a midfielder from Rossington Main four years ago but has more recently excelled at full back.
Collier joined the club last September as assistant manager to Carmody but he stepped down from the position at the end of February this year to concentrate on playing and featured regularly up front at the end of last season.
Manager Carmody commented, “Again it’s pleasing for me to see three more of last season’s squad committing for the season ahead. It just shows the type of lads I have at the club, very loyal and wanting to put right the poor season last campaign.”
“Danny was very consistent last season when he was able to play. His work does limit his game time but I think it’s vital we can call on him when available. Liam came back into the side for the latter part of the season and made some fine displays, his attitude is second to none and is always looking to improve. Gary is the type of player that will score goals at any level if he’s given the opportunities. He is a natural finisher and I’ll be looking to him to be a regular on the scoresheet this season. “
“The squad is coming together nicely with more players already committed along with some new faces to follow over the next few weeks.”
