Newton Aycliffe have completed the signing of exciting young winger Danny Lambert.
The former Darlington speed-merchant – who played 13 games for Craig Liddle’s Quakers side in the Blue Square Conference last season, scoring one goal – has joined Aycliffe from fellow Northern League first division side Marske United.
Lambert, from Stockton, played against the Newtonians for Marske in Aycliffe’s first win of the season at Moore Lane Park 10 days ago.
The 19-year-old was a youth team player with Darlo last season but was called upon by Liddle during the club’s forgetful campaign – his highlight was a wonder goal in a 3-3 draw at AFC Telford United.
Lambert is expected to feature in Aycliffe’s League Cup trip to Consett tomorrow night (7.30pm).
Meanwhile, Aycliffe have also signed goalkeeper David Moffat from Bishop Auckland.
The 27-year-old shot-stopper, brother of West Auckland striker Mattie Moffat, ironically played for Wearside League side Willington against the Blues in the FA Vase on Saturday.
Moffatt will cover for the absent Scott Pocklington at Consett on Tuesday night.
