Hyde sign Danny Carlton & name Joe Kitchen as chairman

Hyde FC have signed striker Danny Carlton and have also restructured at boardroom level to appoint a new chairman and chief executive.

Tahir Khan has stepped down as chairman because of his business commitments and will become vice-chairman, with Joe Kitchen promoted to the vacated role.

Director Pete Ainger has replaced Howard Eggleston as chief executive.

Carlton, 29, was released by Morecambe in May and has agreed a one-year deal with the Conference Premier side.

Having missed most of last season with a serious knee injury, Carlton was invited back for pre-season training with the Shrimps.

However, despite impressing manager Jim Bentley, the club were unable to offer him fresh terms because of financial restrictions.

Hyde, who begin the new league season at Forest Green on Saturday, have also confirmed midfielders Alex Brown and Tunji Moses have signed one-year deals with the Tigers.
