Jack and Astley join having both spent last season at Colwyn Bay on the North Wales coast. Equally adept at playing up front or on the wing, the attacking duo were in fine form last season for the ‘Bay. Astley was top scorer for the Welsh side with 18 goals, whilst Jack came second in the goalscoring charts with 13 goals whilst also winning goal of the season for a stunning strike against Scarborough Athletic.
Jack, 24, joined Colwyn Bay at the start of last season from Radcliffe Borough where he was club captain. He scored 13 times & produced 21 assists for the Greater Manchester side in the 2016/17 season. This created considerable interest in acquring his services at the end that term, with the race for his signature eventually won by Colwyn Bay.
Jack turned out for Colwyn Bay 42 times last season and ended the season in brillaint form, scoring six goals in their last four games, including a hat-trick in a 5-1 home win over Clitheroe last month.
Astley Mulholland, 30, has played for several clubs in the North West such as Flixton, Altrincham, FC United and Chorley before joining Colwyn Bay.
Starting his career up top, his incredible form for Flixton, scoring 44 goals in one season, brought him to the attention of several football league and Conference sides. He decided to join Altrincham, before a move to FC United where he made 95 appearances, scoring 11 goals.
