Striker Max Landless has become Garstang FC’s first summer signing.

Landless who moves from Poulton Town hit the target 37 times last season for the West Lancashire Division One club.

His other former clubs include Wyre Villa and North West Counties Premier League side Squires Gate.

Speaking on his move to the Riverside the 6ft 4 forward said: “It didn’t take long for me to make my mind up to sign for Garstang F.C. after meeting up with Neil.

“I want to play at as high a level as possible and to join a club with ambitions is a bonus.

“I’m just looking forward to getting started now, I already know some of the lads in “Rocky” and “Jacko” so that will help me settle in quickly”

Garstang boss Crossley has spoken of his desire to strengthen the squad with at least three or four players and is understood to be in discussions with further targets.

He said: “ It’s a good feeling to secure your first signing in the Summer. We started a number of games without a recognised striker last season following the departure of “Pooley” and we never really replaced his goal input so I have challenged Max to come up with 15 to 20 goals this season.

“I’m confident after his haul last season that he will achieve that target.”
