New Mills AFC have confirmed the signing of versatile player Cheikh Thiam on a dual registration deal.
Mossley AFC is the 17-year-old’s parent club but he has only made five first-team appearances for the Lilywhites so far this season.

Chiekh has been in superb form at U21 level and has made a big impression in the five first team appearances he’s made so far this season.
Thiam, who can play at right-back or as a right-winger, made his debut for the Millers in Tuesday night’s 4-0 defeat at Wythenshawe Town.
He also counts Shrewsbury Town among his former clubs and is regarded by many in the non-league circuit as a promising talent.
It’s another good signing from joint-managers Dave Birch and Mike Norton.
Thiam will already know some of the Millers squad well, especially Adam Jones, who arrived at Church Lane from Mossley last month.
