Guiseley's assistant manager Wayne Benn revealed that the club have bolstered their options in the striking department by acquiring young forward David Brown from Bradford City.

Having signed former Sheffield Wednesday youth Adam Muller to link up with last season’s top scorer James Hanson, Guiseley have now captured Brown and have Steve Burton up their sleeve.

“David is the latest signing and he did well against his former club in the friendly against City,” said Benn, who himself started his career at Valley Parade.

“He scored his first goal for us in Tuesday’s 3-2 win at Ossett Albion - it was a stunner from 25 yards.

"It got us off the hook because we had gone 2-0 up and let Albion back into the game. It was 2-2 before David netted.

“With Muller and Hanson, we now have three top- quality strikers and, with the added threat of Burton, we have huge competition in one of the most important departments.

“Steve has played a lot of his career up front but I feel he will be of more benefit to us in central midfield.

"It all means we will have a very potent strikeforce, and hopefully we will have people chipping in from other areas.”

Benn added that he and boss Steve Kittrick are pleased with the way the friendly fixtures have gone so far but warned supporters not to get carried away by results.

“It was great to win against City and Albion after they had given us such a test, but it’s not about wining.

"It's all about fitness and regaining sharpness in front of goal to build up to be ready for a fortnight tomorrow when the season starts.

“We deserved to beat City but then lost at Hemsworth with the same squad. Beating a side from a higher level and then not clicking against a side from three or four levels below is typical pre-season form.

"Fantastic one game and then equally as disappointing the next but it’s a process geared up to prepare the squad for the league.”
