Trafford skipper departs

Trafford FC captain Sam Egerton is leaving the club to join NPL Premier Division side Matlock Town.

Egerton, 29, joined the club in March 2019 and previously played for Ashton United, Nantwich Town, Stalybridge Celtic & Lancaster City.

He said: “Trafford is a special club and I leave with some great memories, the cup final win certainly being the best of them.

“I had hoped that I could have said goodbye in person but sadly, that isn’t possible under the current circumstances.”

Manager Danny Caldecott said: “I’d like to personally thank Sam for how he’s conducted himself, not only since I‘ve taken over as manager but since coming to the club.

“He’s everything you want from a captain and I sincerely wish him all the best for the future at his new club.”

Egerton is not the only North/West Division player stepping up to join Matlock - the Gladiators have also signed Mark Lees from Trafford’s league rivals Mossley.
