Frickley Athletic have congratulated two of their players who have been called up for international duty.

Jameel Ible and Zeph Thomas have both been selected to represent St Kitts-Nevis and will play for the senior men’s side in friendlies against Andorra on Thursday, November 12 and against Estonia on Tuesday, November 17.

Manager Karl Rose has bolstered his midfield options with the signing of Hartlepool United midfielder Kieran Green on a month’s loan.

The 18-year-old captained Hartlepool’s youth team last season and was awarded a professional contract in the summer.

Even though still a youth team player last season he made one first team appearance, against Sheffield United in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. Green went straight into in the Blues’ team against Marine last Saturday.

He has been joined at Frickley by more new signings in Brad Grayson and Brett Lucas.

Twenty-two year old striker Grayson returns to the club having previously scored 12 goals in 29 starts and 21 substitute appearances for the Blues during 2011 to 2012. He has since had spells at Matlock Town and Stocksbridge Park Steels as well as Ange IF, in Sweden and Loyola Meralco Sparks, in the Philippines.

Twenty-three-year-old defender Lucas is a former Doncaster Rovers youth team captain who joins from AFC Mansfield.

Frickley are back at home this Saturday when they host Sutton Coldfield Town (3pm).

After three defeats and a draw they were back to winning ways with a 1-0 success at Mickleover Sports on Tuesday night and will be looking to kick on again and end what is becoming a home hoodoo in the Evo-Stik Premier League.

The Blues have been drawn away at Phoenix, of the Central Midlands League, in the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup third round with the tie due to be played on or around November 14.
