Atherton Collieries can confirm that Chris Pauley has left the club. The defender arrived at Alder House at the end of last season, joining from Chadderton. He had long been a target of Colls, having put in great displays against us over a number of years. Chris spent the summer with the club training and playing in the friendlies, consistently showing a fantastic attitude. We thank him for his efforts during his short time with us. He leaves the club and good terms and we wish him all the very best for the future.
