Elam makes first Eccleshill signings

New Eccleshill signing Brad Emmerson

New Eccleshill United manager Lee Elam has begun rebuilding the Eagles after making his first signings.

Talent Ndlovu and Lewis Sugden are the most familiar names of the new faces at the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division club. Ndlovu has played for Ossett Albion and Campion, while Sugden is best known for playing for Farsley Celtic.

Also announced this week have been winger Jacob Buchanan, goalkeeper Brad Emmerson, full-back Tyler Marsh and Kesi Omolokun.

Powerful centre-back Aran Basi is the club’s new captain.

They all join the retained players in Jack Bentley, Matt Stor, Ryan Hargreaves, Jonny Irving, Nathan Woodward and Chris Lever. 

A number of players have left Eccleshill this summer, including Andy Cooper, Charlie Flaherty, Ben Grech-Brooksbank, Harry Stead, Jake Thompson and Liam Hudson.

Elam replaced Sean Regan, who resigned in May after three-and-half-years in charge to seek a new challenge.
