FORMER Shelley, Emley and Brighouse Town striker Craig Billington has signed for Silsden.

Billington is an important acquisition for the Cobbydalers, who lost talented attackers Khurram Shazad to Albion Sports and Leon Hurles-Brook to Campion in November.

The forward has also been previously on the books of Liversedge.

Billington joins in time for the two Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division festive fixtures.

Silsden visit Goole today for the season restart before a gruelling away trip to play AFC Mansfield on Boxing Day.
