ATFC are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Declan Bacon from Bottesford Town.

Declan signs a one year deal at the Impact Arena.

Bacon netted a sensational 45 goals last season in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, as Bottesford finished in 8th spot.

Manager Billy Heath on Declan:

“Declan is a lad whose come from local football and Bottesford gave him a chance last season. He also works at Scunthorpe United in their futsal programme.”

“He’s come from the lower leagues and I knew him last year and he scored 45 goals last season which definitely turned heads. There were a few clubs also interested in him but Dec chose us which was great. He is eager to get going, it’s a big challenge for him to make the step up from the Northern Counties League but it’s a challenge he is excited for.”

“It’s a challenge for all the players too, it will be a tough season, a long campaign with some quality teams in the league this year; but we’ve built a side to challenge."

"Dec coming in gives us another attacking option, he is tremendously fit, lots of energy, makes good runs in behind and plays off the front man. We are delighted to have him.”

Welcome Declan!
