MANAGER Paul Moore reports he has agreed terms with forward Gary Burnett from Northwich Victoria.

The 24-year-old, renowned for his pace and finishing ability in front of goal, has netted over 50 goals in two spells at Northwich, interrupted by a short spell at Curzon Ashton at the start of last season, and has helped them to two cup successes, winning in the Cheshire Senior Cup in 2013/14 and Mid-Cheshire Senior Cup last season.

He rejoined Northwich in November and went on to score 14 goals in the last five months of the campaign, including a hat-trick in a 6-1 Doodson Cup win against Premier Division Skelmersdale United – the club where he first made his debut.

The manager says he hopes to be able to announce a further new signing in the next 24 hours.
