AFC Emley have signed up super scorer Ashley Flynn for another season.

The 26-year-old from Huddersfield hit the national headlines by firing in 73 goals this time around.

His tally would have been more had it not been for the resignation of Lincoln Moorlands Railway from the Northern Counties East League First Division (their record was expunged).

That made the former Frickley Athletic player a wanted man - and a string of offers have come his way.

Keeping him at the Fantastic Media Welfare Ground is therefore a major boost.

Manager Darren Hepworth is plotting a promotion campaign.

His side were beaten on penalties by Bottesford Town in the play-off final.

Former Lepton Highlanders player Flynn, who also turns out for Kirklees Sunday League side Wellington, received a special award at Emley’s presentation evening.

League chiefs have also invited him to their annual dinner in Scarborough next month to mark his scoring spree.

Flynn’s AFC Emley career started with a 42-goal haul in 2012-13.

After stints with Barnsley side Shaw Lane Aquaforce and Frickley, he returned midway through the 2014-15 campaign to hit 16 goals in an injury-hit season.

AFC Emley chairman Nigel Wakefield said: “We’ve just had a brilliant season and Ash was absolutely at the forefront of that.

“But with the play-off final defeat there’s a sense of unfinished business and I’m delighted he’s coming back to help us try and put that right.”

Manager Hepworth has already installed 23-goal frontman Kieran Ryan as captain for next season.

And he is promising further signings soon.
