Mossley AFC are delighted to announce the signing of three quality players in advance of pre season training starting on Saturday 23rd June.

Adam Jones (age 32) is an experienced and commanding central defender who joins the Lilywhites from Glossop North End.

Adam began his career in Stalybridge Celtic's academy as an 18 year old before signing for Curzon Ashton where he played for four seasons, before joining FC United of Manchester in 2010. He went on to make 107 appearances over 3 seasons, scoring 19 goals also winning 2 player of the year awards and helping the Rebels to two successive play off finals.

After a six month spell at Nantwich Town he joined Hyde United in 2015. Over two seasons, he made 42 appearances and scored twice with a spell at Shaw Lane Aquaforce sandwiched between. Since 2016 he has had further spells with Stalybridge Celtic, Trafford, Hyde United and Glossop North End.

Also joining from Glossop for his fourth spell with Mossley is the versatile Ben Richardson (age 29). Ben was originally signed by Chris Willcock in January 2009 from Stalybridge Celtic and won the Mossleyweb Player of the Year that season. He was then re-signed by Gareth McClelland in November 2011 after a spell with Woodley Sports. Ben then had spells with Curzon Ashton and Ashton United before re-signing for a third time in January 2014 and has since had two spells with Glossop with a brief time at Ramsbottom United sandwiched between.

Goalkeeper Marcus Burgess (age 22) has arrived from Prescot Cables. Marcus made his non league debut for Skelmersdale United at 16 years old and after a spell on Evrton's books he signed for Salford City and had loan spells with Burscough, Bamber Bridge and Prescot. He signed for Cables permanently in 2016. He had a loan spell with Padiham late last season before signing for Mossley. Marcus has won representative honours for England Colleges and England Universities.
