We are delighted to announce the signing of former Newcastle United, Nottingham Forest and Mansfield Town defender, James Perch.


An impressive career in the Premier League and EFL spanning 19 years, making over 500 appearances as a professional.


Ian Deakin says

“James is a significant signing for the football club, he is a constant professional in everything he does.

“From an early age we were at (Nottingham) Forest together, his attitude and application since then is a credit to himself.

“He’s been a wonderful player over a long time and his longevity is frightening.

“We’re really looking forward to have him at the club, he will add experience, quality and steel to our side. His leadership skills are something that we will need going forward, especially in a league as tough as this (Northern Premier League)


“We’re delighted to have James on board, it’s a really big signing for us and I’m sure he’ll settle in with the lads well.”
