Maxted Signs For Stanley

Goalkeeper Jonny Maxted impressed League Two Accrington Stanley so much with his performance against them in this season’s Emirates FA Cup that they have come in to sign him for an undisclosed fee.

Maxted, 25, has signed an 18 month contract with The Milk Boys after impressing them with a string of fine saves in the original tie which ended 0-0 and then again in the replay, when he added two penalty saves in the penalty shoot out that saw us progress to the Second Round for the first time in our history back in November.

Maxted has played 59 games for Guiseley since first joining on a three month loan spell from Forest Green Rovers at the start of September 2016 .

The deal was then made permanent in January 2017 and he went on to win the Supporters’ Club’s Craig Shearstone Player of the Season award.

Raised in Boston Spa the former Doncaster Rovers stopper is the nephew of one of the 1991 FA Vase heroes, goalkeeper Paul Maxted.

At Doncaster Jonny made it to the first team subs bench at the age of 16 and gained experience in loan spells at Goole and Gainsborough Trinity.

After leaving Doncaster he spent some time at Hartlepool before joining Forest Green at the start of the 2015-16 season.

We’d like to thank Jonny for all his efforts whilst playing for the Lions and wish him the best of luck for his future career.
