Will arrives to us with a bundle of experience after coming through the youth ranks at Hull City. Atkinson joined Port Vale on loan back in 2007 from then Premier League Hull and had further spells at the likes of Southend United, Rochdale, Bradford City, Mansfield Town and Rotherham. Will has amassed over 300 league appearances during his career including winning promotion with Bradford City and playing in a League Cup final for the Bantams against Swansea in 2013.

He then re-joined Port Vale in October 2019 on a short term deal before signing until the end of the 2019-20 season, Will was then released by the Vale before making two starts for the Reds since his arrival, making his debut against Telford and then playing against Fylde.

Alfie has had a promising young career and had a trial at Sheffield United after coming through the Matlock Town academy. Smith-Eccles has since played for Selston and Frickley Athletic.

Welcome Will and Alfie!
