Experienced midfielder joins the ranks at Green Lane.

Redcar Athletic are delighted to announce the signing of Dale Hopson from Northallerton Town.

The Stockton born midfielder’s experience is plentiful within the non-league pyramid, having wracked up appearances for Darlington, Blyth Spartans, Whitby Town, Marske United, Bishop Auckland and, most recently, Northallerton.

He started his career in the youth set-up at Middlesbrough before moving on to Darlington prior to the club’s liquidation. He then joined Huddersfield Town’s Under-21s in 2012, making 32 appearances before signing for Darlington’s phoenix club, Darlington 1883.

He had a spell in Sweden in 2015 but returned to England that same year, joining Whitby Town.

With injuries limiting Gary Forster’s options in midfield, Dale is a welcomed addition to the Steelmen ranks and will go straight into the squad for this weekend’s game at Penrith.

We would like to thank Northallerton Town for their help and assistance with this deal.
