Guiseley manager Mark Bower and assistant player-manager Danny Boshell, who have helped to turn around the club's fortunes this season in Skrill Conference North, have signed extended deals until the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

The Lions have had ten wins and three draws in their last 13 matches, catapulting them from 11th to the fifth and final play-off position.

That 33-point tally has almost doubled the 35 points they achieved from the first 24 matches.

Bower was handed the reins in September after a disappointing start to the season under Steve Kittrick.

Midfielder Boshell, who rejoined Guiseley from Altrincham in October, has also played a key role.

Physiotherapist Martin Stringfellow has also signed until the end of next season, with the club hoping this will help their planning for next season.

Guiseley chief executive officer and secretary Adie Towers said: "We're delighted to get Mark and Danny signed up for next season.

"After a difficult start to Mark’s time at the club, the pair have helped improve results to the point where we are now in the race for a play-off spot.

"This step will help us plan in areas such as player recruitment and gives the club a boost ahead of an exciting run-in to our season."
