Colne F.C. Head Coach, Nathan Rooney, has strengthened his defensive options with the capture of Tom Dean from Northern Premier side Hyde Utd.
Dean, who was recently named in Mossley FC’s 'Team of the Decade' after spending five years with the club, started last season at FC UTD, before eventually moving onto Hyde prior to the campaigns early curtailment.
Rooney commented “Tom was on the radar very early. The Club had a comprehensive scouting file on him that only cemented my interest and having spoke to Tom it was clear he wanted to be part of the project.”
“His no-nonsense attitude to defending and arial ability will complement what we already have, and at 6ft 4in he’s definitely going to be a threat!”
Tom added “I am delighted to be at Colne. The gaffer called me last week and very quickly I knew this was the right move. Everything I’ve heard about the club states ambition and I can’t wait to get started”
Dean has signed a one year contract with the club and will join Nathan Rooney’s squad as they return training.
The Red Revolution has just stepped up a notch!
