Guisborough Town have signed 25-year-old Darlington striker James Beauchamp on a permanent ‘dual registration’ basis.
James played for Darlington’s Under-18 side as a youngster and was also part of the Quaker’s first team squad before he left and played for several Northern League clubs.
He has recently been playing for Darlington Town in the Wearside League, but has impressed in pre-season training for the Quakers.
He then made his full debut for Darlington as a substitute for the Quakers in the 0-0 draw with Chester in the FA Cup in September.
ISOLATION DUE TO COVID
James would have gone straight into Guisborough Manager Steve Bell’s squad for the league match at Sunderland Ryhope CW on Saturday – but after signing for Guisborough he rang Steve later to tell him he would have to isolate for the next week due to Covid.
Steve commented: “James is a much-sought-after player in the Northern League. He’s a player we’ve been trying to sign since pre-season so we’re delighted to have captured him finally for Guisborough Town.”
