Farsley AFC manager Neil Parsley has begun making his planned big changes to the Throstle Nest dressing room.
Former captain Chris Walton (pictured right) has departed, but Scarborough Athletic man Paddy Miller is set to join after agreeing terms earlier this week.
Miller was a fans’ favourite at Scarborough and a major part of their promotion-winning squad.
Miller, who was a member of Paul Lines’ 2010-11 Yorkshire Amateur team that finished third in the NCEL Division One, was also the club’s joint player of the season for the 2011-12 campaign.
Miller joins a Farsley team determined to repair damage caused by a bad season that had promised so much.
So far, Walton is the only confirmed departure having chosen to use Twitter to announce his exit two weeks ago.
Walton tweeted: “Due to 1 reason n another I have decided to move on from @farsleyafc thanks to staff and fans alike for there support. All the best!”
Walton re-joined his hometown last summer following a spell at Garforth Town and was the club’s captain for a large part of the campaign.
Alongside Miller, Parsley has agreed terms with a number of un-named players, who cannot be officially signed until July 1st.
More news from Throstle Nest is expected at the end of next week.
