Pikes add two former Seadogs

Pickering Town have signed midfielder Wayne Brooksby and forward Leon Osbourne.

The pair both count Scarborough amongst their former clubs, with Brooksby’s exit from the Flamingo Land Stadium confirmed last week after two seasons at the club.

Manager Steve Roberts said: “I am delighted to welcome Wayne to the club. Working with him at Scarborough I know the quality that he will bring to the team . He has so much ability and can unlock teams with his vision.

“His playing CV speaks for itself and he is key for us to move forward as a football club.

“I am so pleased to have him commit to Pickering for the coming season. He will make us stronger as a group and I know the positive affect that he will have on the whole club.

“Leon played over 30 games for Bradford in his early career and I worked with him at Scarborough.

“He is a great lad and even more importantly a very good player. He can play a number of positions, but he is predominately a forward player. He is a real threat wide or centrally, I am really looking forward to working with him again.”

The Pikes have also confirmed four pre-season fixtures, away at Selby (Aug 11) and Goole (Aug 25) and at home to Scarborough (Aug 18) and Belper (Aug 22)
