Curzon Ashton are delighted to announce the return of fan favourites, striker Ryan Brooke and defender Jamie Stott.
Brooke, 27, and Stott, 19, are both returning for their second spells at the club.
Brooke joined the Nash for the first time in 2013 and helped the club to the Evo-Stik First Division North title in his first season, before playing an integral part in the promotion campaign to the Nationl League North.
In August 2016, after 121 appearances and 41 goals, Brooke departed the Tamesdie Stadium for Nantwich Town.
Stott signs for a second time on loan from Oldham Athletic after making 32 appearances at the heart of Curzon's defence last season.
In September 2016, Stott signed on an initial one-month loan which was extended a further two times after some very impressive performances, but he was recalled by his parent club in April, where he went on to make his Football League debut.
Manager, John Flanagan, on the signings of Brooke and Stott, said: "We are really pleased to have both Jamie and Ryan back at the club. Both were always very popular in their first periods and we know they are very capable. I'm sure the players and spectators that knew them will be delighted to see both back with us and wish them all the very best for their second spell."
In recent weeks, Brooke has played a host of games for Sandbach United in an attempt to gain match fitness, where he has scored 10 goals in 9 appearances, however due to a current bout of tonsillitis Brooke may not be available for this weekend's fixture.
Everyone at Curzon would like to extend a warm welcome to Jamie and Ryan and hope thier second spells at the Nash are very successful!
