Nearney back for Blues

Whitby Town is delighted to announce the signing of Josh Nearney from Whitley Bay for an undisclosed fee. 

The right-back, who is also adept as a centre-half signed from the Northern League Division One side this week, after seeking a move to a higher level.

Nearney will be a familiar name to some Blues fans following a loan spell from Hartlepool United in October 2015, under Darren Williams.

The defender could go into the squad for the visit of Hednesford Town this weekend, and will not be cup tied, so is eligible to face his former club in the FA Cup first round qualifying tie at Hillheads Park, next Saturday (September 8).

You can hear more from Nearney in this Friday’s Whitby Gazette, when he talks to Paul Connolly.
