Tom Eckersley: Tamworth sign ex-Accrington Stanley defender

Tom Eckersley

Tamworth have signed defender Tom Eckersley following his release by League Two side Accrington Stanley.

Eckersley, 21, arrived at the Crown Ground on a free transfer last summer having left Bolton Wanderers, where he had come through the youth system.

However, the 6ft 4in centre-back made only four appearances for Stanley and spent time on loan in the Conference Premier with Stockport and Barrow.

Eckersley becomes Tamworth manager Dale Belford's sixth summer signing.
