Four players commit to Atherton Collieries

The club have announced that Niall Battersby, Clive Smith, Gaz Peet and Rick Smith are the first members of the Black & White squad to formally commit for the 2021/22 season at the Skuna stadium.

Manager Brad Cooke said: “We’re absolutely delighted to get these lads over the line after a really challenging few months for the football club.

"For them to agree to stay is a real complement to the club as a whole, especially with offers elsewhere which have been turned down. Happiness coupled with the right environment can still win over money, which is ironic after the events of the last few days!”

The club also confirmed that they will have further updates to follow imminently.
