SKELMERSDALE UNITED have swooped for two experienced non-league campaigners.
The Evo-Stik First Division North leaders will be able to include David Chadwick and Steve Torpey in the squad for today’s match at home to Ossett Town.
Both players have been managed by Skem boss Tommy Lawson before when he was in charge of Prescot Cables.
Defender Chadwick and Torpey, a forward, were released by FC United of Manchester earlier this week, allowing Lawson to move in for them.
Chadwick, returning to Skem for a second spell, is a former FC United captain whilst Torpey scored The Rebels’ first ever goal in a 2005 pre-season friendly.
“David is a player I know well, he played for me at Prescot, he is just the sort of winning character we need if we are achieve our aim of promotion,” said Lawson.
“I am very happy to have signed him.
“I have known both players since they were youngsters, they played a great part in training tonight they are also characters that will play a part in the dressing room, too. I am looking forward to working with them again.”
l BOOTLE, meanwhile, have a ticket offer for all those attending lunchtime’s Everton v Manchester United match.
The Bucks entertain Alsager Town today (3pm) in the second round of the League Challenge Cup and upon the production of a match ticket from the early kick-off at Goodison Park, or a season card, you can gain entry for £2.
