Ossett Albion have bolstered their squad with two experienced signings as they look to climb away from Evo-Stik Division 1 North relegation danger.

Defender Rob Tonks has made the short switch from Ossett Town to Dimple Wells, while striker Adam Muller has arrived from Farsley FC.

The pair could go straight into Albion’s squad for the home match against Lancaster City on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) as Albion look to ease their drop fears.

Albion joint manager Lloyd Fellows said: “We have struggled to get results in recent games and felt the need to bolster the squad as we move into the second half of the season.

“In Rob and Adam we have signed two experienced players who will strengthen our squad in our battle to move away from the wrong end of the table.

“Due to the recent bad weather we still have half of our games to play and we will need a larger squad to enable us to compete in the inevitable two games per week. We are also looking at a number of other options and hope to make at least one more signing over the next week or so.”

Albion’s scheduled league trip to Harrogate Railway Athletic tonight has been postponed due to Harrogate being in County Cup action.

Wakefield FC’s home match against Radcliffe Borough has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
