FABRIZIO DE LAUR

Italian stallion who used to play for Perugia Youths back in Italy before being trialed by Sheffield United,Grimsby Town and Nottingham Forest, however reserve team football is as good as it gets.

SEAN BEAMISH

Irish defender with plenty of guts recently joined from Belevdere United.

LINDEN WHITEHEAD

Linden has been a magnificent servant to Worksop Town and has celebrated his testimonial after ten years service. After serving the Club as captain for eight seasons, he has had the honour of raising the Unibond Division One runners up trophy, and he also led the team out to win the Chairmans Cup against Droylsden in April 2002. Last season he led the Tigers to victory in the Sheffield Senior Cup after beating Doncaster Rovers 2:1 in the final held at Hillsborough. He relinquished his captains armband following the home match against Marine on 25 October 2003. The team is now captained by Mark Haran.

STEVEN HAWES

24 years old signed from Altrincham summer 2002, ex Sheffield United player, he is also a semi-pro international player. Has the title of youngest player to play for Sheffield United in the Premiership

KEVIN DAVIES

Twenty four year old Kevin Davies joined the Tigers from Nationwide Conference side Telford United in July 2003 after being voted Telford's Player of the Year for the season 2002/03. Kevin started his football career at Sheffield United Football Club where he spent two years as an apprentice and three years as a professional. He then transferred to Telford United where he spent the last three years.

ALEX CALLERY

Twenty year old Alex Callery signed for Worksop after playing for Sheffield Wednesday Academy team for three years. He signed for Worksop last season and spent a loan spell with Gainsborough Trinity before returning to the Tigers later in the season.

NEIL GLASSER

Twenty eight year old Neil Glasser has joined the Tigers in a two year deal following a career which saw him at Nottingham Forest under the eye of top England Manager, Brian Clough. He then spent two years with Notts County before joining Bromsgrove Rovers where he spent two years in the Conference League.

PAUL SYKES

Versatile 26 year old Paul Sykes has signed a two year deal with the Tigers after gaining a free transfer from Harrogate Town. Sykes previous clubs include Sheffield Wednesday, Bradford Park
Avenue and Ossett Town.

JOE TAYLOR

Born in April 1980, 23 year old defender and former Manchester Utd junior, Joe Taylor, is Worksop's latest new signing. Joe joined the Tigers on 8th November 2003 from Tamworth. He was spotted by Tamworth after playing against them in the 2002/3 final of the FA Trophy at Villa Park, whilst playing for Burscough. Having signed for Tamworth in July 2003, his appearances were limited after he was selected for the British University team to play in the World Student Games.

MIKE GRAY

Versatile powerhouse speedy sweeper who can play in all over the park via GK but prefered postion is on the left wing. Gray is strong and powerful but has a way of losing his cool and often is carded. Formerly with Gainsborough Trinity for a short while but was deemed surplus to requirements and has been involved in the reserve setup at Worksop for a short while, has good potential to soon be a first team member and has shone in recent reserve games.

AHYED AL-DOSARI

Gutsy English/Saudi Arabian midfielder who can use his pace to beat of defenders with ease, has yet to be given a place in the first team but like Mike Gray has shone since arriving at Sandy Lane. Al-Dosari formely with Bawtry Town and Bradford City YTS is a great prospect.

MATT CAUDWELL

Another player in his early twenties signed from Doncaster Rovers summer 2002.

SIMEON BAMBROOK

Simeon Bambrook is Worksop Town's very latest signing after he agreed his contract on September 1st 2003. Bambrook was in his second term with Wakefield and Emley when Tigers manager Steve Ludlam stepped in to sign the striker. Previously with North East Counties side Garforth, Bambrook has been a regular scorer in the Unibond League, but was set to leave after the departure of former manager Ronnie Glavin but current manager Ian Banks persuaded him to stay. The Tigers had been following his progress for some time and now they have their man they hope he will add some fire-power to their attack.

DARREN ROBERTS

32 years old Centre forward, signed from Tamworth 2002, prolific scorer wherever he has been playing, previous clubs include Scarborough, Darlington, and Burton.

ADAM MULLER

Twenty One year old Adam Muller (Forward) joined the Tigers from Sheffield Wednesday two seasons ago after a loan spell with us

BEN CHASING

Short 17 year old reserve player with and eye for goal but lacks speed for his age however is tipped for the step up to first team next season.
