OSSETT ALBION manager Richard Tracey has added the finishing touches to his backroom staff with the capture of former striker Adam Muller.
Muller, who enjoyed a short stint with the Evo-Stik Premier League outfit last term before signing for Buxton, has agreed to re-join as player-assistant manager.
An experienced goal-scorer, Muller has also had spells with Guiseley, Eastwood Town, Ilkeston Town, Worksop Town and Farsley.
Though Muller’s Queen’s Terrace homecoming will provide an initial step into the world of management.
“I am delighted that Adam has returned to the club,” manager Tracey told The Press.
“It was a big blow last season when he joined Buxton and he has expressed a wish to become more involved.
“I had no hesitation offering him the position of assistant manager. His wealth of experience can only be of benefit to the club.”
Though working alongside Tracey, Muller offers the Albion boss a lethal threat in front of goal.
His addition has only bolstered an already impressive squad, following the re-signings of Adam Rhodes, Henry Owen, Niall O’Brien and Stefan Holt.
Despite interest from elsewhere, Steve Nicholson and Rob Tonks have also put pen to paper on fresh deals, while Tracey seeks out further talent.
He added: “Pre-season training is going really well and a number of key players have re-signed.
“Their wealth of experience will help the younger members of the squad and I am also looking at several trialists.
“I expect to strengthen the squad with a number of new signings over the coming weeks.”
Albion kick off their pre-season campaign at Maltby Main on Thursday July 18 (kick-off 7.30pm).
