Consett AFC are delighted to announce that centre-back Dan Capewell has agreed to join the club permanently on contract.
The 26-year-old initially signed on dual registration from Dunston in January 2022, and played a vital part in our promotion to the Northern Premier League.
Brought in to help cope with an injury crisis in central defence, he played 14 games in the last three months of the season, scoring four goals.
Despite suffering a badly broken nose at Penrith on April 2, he bravely returned ahead of schedule to play in our play-off win at Histon just four weeks later, and was many people’s man of the match.
As well as Dunston, Dan has played for North Shields Athletic and Bedlington Terriers.
Chairman Frank Bell said: “In his short time at the club, Dan has already shown the sort of qualities we’ll need in the Northern Premier League. We’re delighted to have him on board as we prepare for our first season at the highest level the club has ever played.”
Dan’s permanent signing is the second piece of good news for Consett supporters this week, after we revealed yesterday that striker Zak Atkinson has joined from Whickham.
