Alex Curran signs for Shildon AFC

Shildon AFC is delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Alex Curran.  Alex has signed from National League North side Blyth Spartans and has experience of playing in the Northern League since the age of twenty.  Former clubs include Ryton, Whickham, Tow Law & most recently Blyth Spartans.  He was selected in the Vanarama Team of the week on his National League North debut with a clean sheet at  home to Brackley Town.

Jamie Tunstall, Shildon AFC Manager said “I’m delighted to welcome Alex to the club.  Right from our initial conversations I got a good feeling about his character and felt like he’d be a great fit for our dressing room.  Alex comes with plenty of experience and has played in the National League North last year so will be a big asset to us as a football club”.

Welcome Back to Danny Craggs

Shildon AFC are delighted to confirm that midfielder Danny Craggs has re-signed for the club as player/coach.

Danny first signed for Shildon in July 2019, arriving from Consett AFC and made 55 appearances across the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons, scoring 18 goals.  Speaking about his return Danny said:

“I have a great relationship with David (Dent), Diane (Dent) and Bobby (Daniel Moore) and everyone associated with Shildon AFC.  David and Bobby didn’t want me to leave in the first place and I was delighted when they asked me to come back, they make me and my family feel so welcome which is a massive thing for me.  I was always comparing other clubs to Shildon when they wanted me to sign for them. When I left it become even more apparent how good a club Shildon is and how well the club is ran. In the 20 years of being in the northern league I have only been in 2 or 3 dressing rooms where everyone gets along and is striving for the same goal and that is the case at Shildon, the lads are fantastic.  Shildon as a club are up there with the best in the north east and I am so glad to be part of it”

“I still feel I can offer something on the pitch, I know I’m not going to be starting every week but hopefully can contribute when I do play and help the lads. Coaching wise I’m there to help Bobby and Huddy (Mark Hudson), whether its to take the warm up or help with training, and if they need my opinion on something I can offer that.”

“I’ve signed for this season as I haven’t got many left!  But I’m sure myself, David and Bobby will have discussions throughout the season to see what will happen after this season. Hopefully I can stay at Shildon once I have finished my playing career.”

Welcome back to Shildon AFC, Danny.
