Guiseley have added experience to their back line with the signing of centre back Scott Garner from FC Halifax Town.

Garner will be the older head for a group of defenders in their early 20s in Niall Heaton, Will Thornton, Louie Swain and Harry Flowers.

The 28 year-old Garner joined the Shaymen from Boston United and was a vital part of the Town squad that gained promotion to the National League two seasons ago.

His previous clubs include Mansfield Town, Grimsby Town, Cambridge United and Lincoln City.

A product of the Leicester City youth system, Garner signed a professional contract with the Foxes but never made a first team appearance.

Twice capped by England C, Garner said: "I like to think that I’m a winner."
