Aiden Walker Joins The Lions

We are delighted to announce the signing of defender Aiden Walker.

Guiseley AFC have signed a second former Brighouse Town player in defender Aiden Walker who joins his friend Laurence Sorhaindo at Nethermoor, writes Rachel O’Connor.

Walker is primarily a left-back but is versatile also being able to play at centre-back, right-back or centre-midfield.

The 23 year-old Halifax-born player was with Barnsley from Under-14 to Under-16 but then signed as a scholar at League Two club Mansfield Town.

In a five year spell with The Stags he had loan spells with Leek Town, Grantham Town and Coalville.

He sustained an injury and when his contract was up manager Nigel Clough did not renew it.

He had trials at South Shields and FC Halifax Town but needed knee surgery.

When he recovered he joined Brighouse Town for the 2022-23 season where he made a big impression.

Walker decided to join Guiseley after hearing good things about the club from other players and is now looking to settling in and starting a new season.

He said: “I am quite a fit lad and I am looking forward to pre-season starting. Personally I am looking to stay fit and play as many games as I can and help to keep as many clean sheets as we can.

The pre-season games look to be challenging with a number against National North opposition so that will be a good test.”

He added: “As a team the minimum we should be looking at is the play-offs but I am after promotion. This seems to be a good club with good people and they take care of their players.”

Join Aiden at Nethermoor next season with a 2023/24 season ticket with prices frozen at just £145 for adults!
