Reeves and Tingle commit to Pontefract

New Pontefract Collieries striker Damian Reeves

Former Farsley Celtic and Altrincham striker Damian Reeves and wide man Sam Tingle have committed to Pontefract Collieries.

Reeves, who was a Ossett United and Tadcaster Albion player last season, is the first experienced name to say yes to new Colls boss Andy Monkhouse.

Tingle played for Barnsley’s academy before moving to Sweden to play for IFK Östersund. In this country he has played for Lincoln United.

Reeves is best known for his stints with Farsley and Altrincham. His goals fired Farsley to the Conference National in 2007 and he was their top goal-scorer in Non League’s top flight. After a brief spell at Histon during the year of their giant-killing of Leeds United on their waterlogged surface in the FA Cup, he returned to help Farsley avoid relegation from the Conference North in 2009.

His time at Altincham is remembered for his 40+ goals heroics which helped his mentor Lee Sinnott return them to the Conference National in the early part of the decade. He also scored the winning goal in their FA Cup upset over Barnsley.

Reeves went onto make over 300 appearances for the Robins before departing in 2007.

Prior to Saturday’s announcements, Monkhouse had confirmed the captures of Matty Nebard from Albion Sports and Albert Ibrahimi from Thackley.

From last season’s squad, Gavin Rothery has pledged his future to the Colls.

The latest player to leave is Connor Smythe.

    Reevesyyyy.. top player. VV popular at Throstle Nest. Wouldnt have said no to him coming back even now. Would not have got in as a regular these days, so I suppose he has gone to Ponte to play every wk. Good luck to him. Blue army hero
