Two-time National League promotion winner Andy Monkhouse has signed for Ossett United.
The Evo-Stik Divison One East club added the experienced Tom Greaves last week and have now secured another proven pro.
Monkhouse won back-to-back play-off finals at Wembley with Bristol Rovers and then Grimsby Town two years ago and has now left Whitby Town to move close to home and also focus on coaching.
“I have nothing but good things to say about Whitby, the people and the supporters have been brilliant with me,” the midfielder, who has also played for Alfreton, said. “I’ve loved my time here. Last season wasn’t brilliant, but as a club, from the very top to the very bottom, we all stuck together and fought through to get ourselves safe. That says it all about this club.
“This season, we’ve started well. I’m confident that Whitby will be more than safe this season. I wish everyone at Whitby Town all the best for the future.
“I am very keen to share my experience with the lads at Ossett and help to develop the squad as we progress through the new year and hopefully into the play-offs.”
