7- Ryan Hall - Winger
Ryan Hall re-joined Curzon from Spennymoor Town in the summer of 2022. He is a very quick and incisive winger who is adept at beating his man and getting in behind opposition defences. He is a nightmare for his opposition due to his ability to be able to cut inside and take a shot or stay wide and cross as his decision making is top-tier.

8 - Samuel Walker - Midfield
Sam Walker re-joined Curzon for the second time in the summer of 2022 from Farsley Celtic. He is a very experienced central midfielder with over 600 career games who has excellent passing ability and work rate. On top of this his outstanding technique makes him a danger from set pieces.

9 – Thomas Peers Striker
Tom Peers joined Curzon in February 2022 after a month-long loan from Altrincham FC. He scored 8 goals in 24 games over his 2 stints at the club. He is a very quick forward and will look to run the channels. He will look to link up with fellow ex-Altrincham teammates Hancock and Hampson in the upcoming season

10 - Josh Hancock - Midfielder
Josh Hancock joined Curzon from Altrincham FC in the summer of 2022. He is a goal scoring central midfield player who is most effective in and around the 18 yard box. He is also very effective in the team's build up play, being able to comfortably find his team mates in space with the great passing quality he possesses.

11 – William Hayhurst – Winger
Will Hayhurst joined Curzon this summer from Farsley Celtic, where he worked under current Curzon boss Adam Lakeland. He has made nearly 50 career appearances in League 1 playing for Preston North End. His preferred side is the left and will look to put good quality crosses into the box.

12 - George Waring - Striker
George Waring joined Curzon from Chester in the summer of 2022. He is a towering centre forward who possesses a great aerial threat. Waring is also excellent technically with exceptional dribbling and finishing ability. This wide skill set makes him a very complete player who is a danger to any side.

21 – Craig Mahon - Winger

Mahon joined Curzon from Chester in the summer of 2020. Technically gifted and brilliant on the ball, Mahon was the driving force of the Nash midfield last season. Another Ireland youth international, Mahon is also the Nash captain. His leadership skills and ability on the ball are second to none within the club.

22 – Adam Barton – Defender
Barton joined the Nash from manager Adam Lakeland’s former club, Farsley Celtic. Barton is a composed centre-back, who can deputise in central midfield. A full international with Northern Ireland, Barton has a fantastic reading of the game, alongside an excellent passing range from the back. Barton is also a former League 2 Champion with Portsmouth.

23 – Charlie Gladwin – Goalkeeper
Gladwin is an up-and-coming young goalkeeper who has been brought through the Curzon Ashton youth ranks. He is an acrobatic shot-stopper, who’s agility and speed across his line allow him to make some great saves. A more than capable understudy to Renshaw, Gladwin will be looking to learn off the Nash’s number one this season.

26 – Harry Jessop - Forward
Born in Chesterfield, Jessop started his youth career at Sheffield Wednesday before signing for Scunthorpe United as an under-10 in December 2011 following his release by Wednesday. After a two-year scholarship with the club, he was offered his first professional contract in summer 2020.
Jessop joined Northern Premier League Division One North/West side Pickering Town on a one-month loan in October 2020. He was recalled shortly before the end of his loan spell due to the suspension of Northern Premier League fixtures as a result of a second national lockdown in England, having scored 3 goals in 7 starts for the club and was named their Player of the Month for October.
