Glossop Sign Experienced Striker

Glossop North End manager Stuart Mellish is building his squad ahead of the new season in the NPL West.

24-year-old Matty Gillam joins the club from Atherton Collieries.

The forward was originally a product of the youth & academy system at Rochdale from the age of 16. He progressed to feature for the first team on 32 occasions in EFL League One, scoring five goals in the process. To develop his game, Matty had loan spells with Cork City, Stalybridge Celtic and Guiseley.

Upon signing Gillam, Mellish told GNE's official website: ''I'm delighted to bring Matty to the football club , he has tasted league football and scored goals at that level with Rochdale. Like a lot of young players they don’t get time to fulfill their potential, having gained non league experience with Guiseley and Atherton cols. He’s now ready to kick on his career and having spoken at length with him a few weeks ago he’s bought into what we are trying to achieve and agreed to to join GNE''.
