GUISBOROUGH Town manager Steve Bell has been extremely busy in the transfer market capturing a string of promising new signings and re-signings to bolster his side.

A signing from last season who was unable to make his Guisborough debut due to the Covid lockdown is left back Scott Howes. Even he is still a relatively young player, Scott already has great Northern League level experience under his belt and he is a player who is sure to bring high quality to the side down the left.

Guisborough will have highly-talented young midfielder JJ Bartliff with the club again for the new season – he rapidly became a favourite with the KGV Stadium supporters with a string of exciting performances.

A further crop of new signings by Guisborough in recent days includes Nick Hood, a central defender and former Middlesbrough FC, Marske United and Bishop Auckland player. He worked with Bell’s assistant manager Paul Crager during his time at the Middlesbrough Academy.

Midfielder Joe Scaife-Wheatley has also signed on for the Priorymen. A former Stockton Town, Thornaby and Billingham Synthonia player, he is well known to the Guisborough team management and is a technically gifted midfield player who will provide the team with excellent quality in the middle of the pitch.

Another new midfielder, James Rowe, has also signed for Guisborough and brings with him good Northern League experience and previously played under the Steve Bell/Paul Crager management duo.
