SILSDEN have gone on a signing spree ahead of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division season, with six confirmed new faces over the last few days.

Three of those have performed with distinction for Silsden in the past, with striker Khurram Shazad rejoining after a spell at Albion Sports and midfielder Kyle Hancock also back in the fold.

Goalkeeper Sammy Lee has also been announced, coming back after a spell at Knaresborough Town.

The other new boys may be familiar to those with an interest in the Bradford non-league scene too.

Young striker Mo Qasim has signed from Campion, while fellow attacker Jack Normanton, who used to be at Thackley, should provide goals too.

The Silsden forward line will be even more threatening with the capture of Joe Jagger, who is the sixth and final addition, coming in from Brighouse.

In terms of their existing players, Silsden are welcoming Matty Moses back in to the fold after almost two years out with a serious knee injury.

It is anticipated that Mark Everingham will be out for a further six to eight weeks after ankle surgery.

Liam Hudson also faces around five more weeks on the sidelines after a procedure on his knee.

After dislocating his shoulder in training recently, Dan Illingworth is also working towards a comeback in around three weeks.

Connor Thompson has entered the latter part of his rehab programme after suffering a double leg fracture 12 months ago.

Unfortunately, captain Josh Kaine and Carlton Pownall will have an extended spell on the sidelines due to long term leg and achilles injuries respectively.
