SILSDEN have signed promising young player Tawheed Ahmed from Goole.

Bradford football fans may recognise the attacker from his time in the Yorkshire Amateur League with Toller, St Bede's and Athletico.

The youngster started his journey at Nab Wood Juniors before heading off to Middlesbrough for a trial.

The move didn’t materialise but he then spent a year at City after scoring a hat-trick against them in one game. After a year in the Bantams' academy, he was released.

The-then 16-year-old moved to the likes of Toller, St Bede's and Athletico in order to feature in the Yorkshire Amateur League.

He also represented the league's under-21s against London and York.

After starring at grassroots level, Goole signed the youngster in July 2020, but he has now joined Silsden after only nine months in East Yorkshire.

Ahmed's preferred position is on the wing, where he has the ability to cut inside at speed and find the net.

Silsden will also be glad to have a player who attracts opposition players to him, thus creating space for his teammates in the box.
