We are extremely happy to announce the signing of dynamic midfielder Tyler Walton on a permanent deal from Frickley Athletic.
Walton counts Manchester City, Leeds United, Barnsley and York City amongst his former clubs, and has spent the last 16 months with the South Elmsall outfit.
Farsley Celtic Manager Adam Lakeland was thrilled to secure the services of Walton, as he said: “I’m delighted that Tyler has joined us, he’s a local lad who is young, hungry and ambitious.
“Tyler’s a player we have been aware of and monitoring since we came to the club.
“We’ve had him watched numerous times, and reports from people whose opinions I trust suggest he should be playing higher, which he has in the past at York, making his debut aged just 17.
“He has energy, athleticism, can go past a player, has a creative eye and the ability to score goals. He is a good size and can play in midfield, wide or behind the strikers, giving us additional options and competition for places.
“We have recruited a number of players with these traits over the last two seasons which has worked for us and I’m sure Tyler will thrive within the environment we’ve created with the excellent group of players we already have. I’m delighted to have him on board.”
The young midfielder is looking forward to pulling on the Farsley shirt, commenting: “Farsley is a great club, it has great ambitions to kick on, and after being promoted they want to keep going and there’s no reason why we can’t challenge at the higher end of the division.
“I already know Jack Higgins from when I was at York City with him, he’s a great lad and he always looked after me!
“I’m excited to be playing in the National League North, I’m hoping to get a good number of games under my belt and contribute some goals too, hopefully there’ll be a trophy at the end of it as well!
“My target for next season is to score and create as many goals as I possibly can, and try and help to get this team up in the top half of the league.”
Everyone at the club wishes Tyler a warm welcome!
