Frickley Athletic are delighted that Matt Bloor has signed a contract to stay at the club until the end of the season.

Bloor has made a successful return to competitive football after suffering a broken leg and dislocated ankle in a Doodson Sport Cup tie at Brigg Town in January.

After more than nine months out the 24-year-old marked his comeback game with a goal in the Blues’ 3-0 Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup win over Stocksbridge Park Steels in early November. Since then Bloor has comfortably slotted back into his regular midfield position and has once again become an important member of the side.

In his two spells at Westfield Lane Bloor has made 120 appearances, 110 of which he has started in, and has scored six goals – two of which have been since his comeback in November.

Frickley’s Luke Jeffs, meanwhile, has reached 100 appearances for the club and prior to the Boxing Day game was presented with a bottle of Champagne.

One of Karl Rose’s first signings for the club in the summer of 2012, Jeffs joined from Goole AFC and has now made 104 appearances, 85 of which are starts. His flexibility has seen him play in most positions across the defence and also in midfield.
