GUISELEY AFC have signed defender Andrai Jones following the loss of right-back Cliff Moyo.

The 27-year-old Liverpool-born defender made most of his career appearances with Southport.

He joins the Lions having spent last season with Stafford Rangers and prior to that he was with Welsh Premier League side Bala Town.

Jones started his career in the youth set-up at Bury in 2010 and after a loan spell at Altrincham he joined Barnsley FC in January 2013.

He had loan spells at Tranmere Rovers and Alfreton Town before being released by Barnsley in July 2014 and joining Gateshead.

The versatile player joined Southport in July 2015 and notched up 67 games for them before moving on to Bala Town in July 2017.

The man who pairs his football career with his own business in Liverpool, coaching children aged 3 to 12 years, said of his move: "I'm looking forward to joining up with Russ O'Neill once more. I was with Russ and Nicky Law at Alfreton in 2014 and Russ knows what I'm about as a player.

"I'm looking forward to meeting all the lads at Guiseley and I'm hoping to have a successful season there.

Jones added: "I know about Guiseley as I played against them a number of times when I was at Southport. I'm looking forward to pre-season, we look to have some good games lined up."

Meanwhile, left-sided forward Jack Dyche has left the Lions to join Evo-Stik League Premier Division outfit Hyde United.

The Leeds-born player, who had a loan spell with Bradford (Park Avenue) in 2016-17, joined Guiseley at the beginning of last season.

Hyde boss Dave McGurk said: “Jack is an exciting young player and we are delighted to have him on board. 

“He will add goals and creativity to the team. We know him well and he is the exact type of character we are looking for and he will be a huge asset to the team with his style of play.”
