DURHAM City, hoping to build on last season’s 15th position in the EBAC Northern League First Division, have made their first major signing of the close season.
Mark O’Dea, a midfielder who had spent four seasons with Ashington, will add experience to the side.
Manager Adam Furness said: “His passing, ability to read the game and professional attitude will be a big asset. He formerly played for Arnold Town, so has experience at a high level.”
H Boldon CA are looking for a new chairman to help realise their ambitions of moving into the EBAC Northern League.
Current post holder Kevin Oliver said: “It is a ready-made club for someone to take over. Everything is in place for a move up the pyramid but we need someone with fresh ideas and maybe financial support to take us forward.
