GUISELEY AFC have added six-foot striker Gabriel Johnson to their squad for the coming season and he arrives at Nethermoor hoping to maintain his prolific strike partnership with Aaron Martin.

The pair were at Brighouse Town last season with Johnson, a former Sheffield United Academy player, playing 33 games in which he scored ten goals and provided 14 assists.

Johnson, 22, had spells as a youngster with Manchester United Under-14s and Leeds United Under-17s before his season with the Academy at Sheffield United.

He has also played for Hallam FC, Sheffield FC and Doncaster Rovers and has a brother Tom who played in midfield for Harrogate Town.

Johnson, from Sheffield, works as a gym instructor and he is working hard on his own fitness prior to pre-season starting at Guiseley.

He said: "This is a step up for me and I want to be ready for when pre-season training starts. Aaron and I worked well together at Brighouse Town last season and got the club promoted with the goals and assists we shared between us. We will ge hoping to replicate that at Guiseley.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of stepping up a level to a club a lot bigger than the one I was at and it gives you an opportunity to be seen on a bigger stage.

"I have heard good things about the club from some of my friends who have played there so I can't wait to get started."
