Adrian Costello has confirmed his first set of signings as he looks to rebuild Garforth Town’s team.
Arriving at the J.S. White & Co Community Stadium are Nathan Kilby, Harry McMillan and Raul Fletcher and all three could make their debuts at Pontefract Collieries on Saturday.
Fletcher is a doubt because he broke his arm during a training session on Garforth’s five-a-side courts on Monday night.
The striker is former under 19s player for the likes of Ossett Town, Farsley Celtic and Guiseley.
Attacker McMillan was kindly allowed to transfer from Pickering to Garforth at short notice by Costello’s good friend Paul Marshall.
He is the son of York City legend Andy, who is in charge of the academy at Bootham Crescent where Costello works.
Kilby is a right-back and he works alongside Costello at York.
The trio were meant to make their debuts in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division clash with Parkgate last Saturday. This match was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.
It meant they were not eligible to play in the West Riding County Cup thrashing of Armthorpe Welfare last night.
In the end, Garforth managed to get eleven eligible players out, but the situation did not look good at the weekend.
The Miners’ squad was decimated after six players walked out with Graham Nicholas to Ossett Town. More could have followed if a ceasefire hadn’t been agreed at a high level between the two clubs.
Defender Jack McCarthy, who played in the Armthorpe win, is the first of a few that could be dual-registered.
