Spennymoor Town will be the envy of their National League North rivals after swooping to sign striker Adam Boyes from Bradford Park Avenue.
20 goals in 41 appearances last season for the Horsfall Stadium outfit was good enough for Boyes to tie fifth in the goalscorer charts, and that has proved enough for Spennymoor to pay out an undisclosed fee for the services of the 27-year-old.
Now calling the Brewery Field home, Boyes revealed the ambitions demonstrated by the Moors match his own.
“The negotiations have been going on for a long time, so I can’t wait to get started,” the former Barrow and Guiseley striker said.
“As soon as I spoke to Jason I knew Spennymoor was the club for me as I know a few of the lads already here and it’s an ambitious club that wants to go up through the leagues.
“I will always work hard and play with passion for the shirt, and hopefully I can keep up my record of scoring goals.”
Moors assistant boss Tommy Miller noted Boyes will become a valuable asset for the team having proven himself at Step 1 and Step 2.
He said: “We’ve got ourselves a proven goal-scorer at this level with Adam. He’s also experienced in the league above too with Guiseley, so we’re pleased to have a player of his pedigree join us.
“He’s going to bring something to the squad and he’s going to be a big player for us this season. We were very impressed when he played against us last season and have been working hard to secure his signature.
“It’s great he’s finally now a Spennymoor player,” Miller added.
Boyes becomes the seventh signing of the summer for Moors boss Jason Ainsley.
