Whitby Town has completed the triple signing of Arron Wearmouth, Ben Kitchen and Liam Cooke.

The three have featured heavily across pre-season for the Seasiders, all impressing manager Chris Hardy.

Wearmouth brings with him a wealth of experience across non-league, having appeared for Blyth Spartans, Darlington and Bishop Auckland, among others, and made an impression with a neat finish against Middlesbrough U23s, along with his aggressive attacking displays on the left

The former Quaker also brings added versatility to Hardy’s side, being able to operate anywhere on the left side, or as a forward, operating chiefly as a left-wing-back.

Kitchen is a product of the Newcastle United academy, and returns to the country after a spell playing in Croatia.

The 20-year-old right-back spent 13 years with his boyhood club, before joining NK Novigrad.

19-year-old Cooke joins the club, on dual-registration forms, as another former Middlesbrough academy player.

The central midfielder, who is the brother of Peterborough United’s Callum Cooke, appeared for Boro in the Under-18 Premier League and has also featured in Northern League football, turning out for Easington Colliery on a work experience loan.
