Taylor who represented both Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic in the Premier League said “the move has been on the cards for a few weeks and I’m delighted to join Colne F.C.

I trained with the lads Thursday and can’t wait to get started now”.
Head Coach Nathan Rooney added “this is a major signing for Colne Football Club and I’m delighted it’s over the line. Ryan brings a proven quality, but also experience to our group and that will be invaluable to everyone, especially the younger lads.
