We are delighted to announce versatile young player George Cantrill has signed a new contract to play for the club for a second season.
The 20 year-old was released by Sheffield United in the summer of 2019 and despite interest from other Football League clubs he decided to join The Lions, where he had had a loan spell from The Blades in the 2018-19 season.
The Sheffield-based player made a positive impact in his first full season with The Lions figuring in midfield as well as at full-back.
George was a consistent performer in any role he was been asked to play and made 32 starts in the past season, which was ended early by the Covid 19 outbreak.
He is now looking forward to the new season, whenever it starts. He said: “I couldn’t wait to sign a new contract with Guiseley and now I can’t wait for a new season to start. It is a pity the season ended early as I feel we could have got into the play-offs the way we were performing, especially with the way we played in the last game we played at King’s Lynn.
“We look as if we will have a similar squad to last season so I think we can push on and aim for promotion. I believe we are capable of that and we will have as much of a chance as anyone else.”
In the lockdown George has been keeping fit by running and by helping out in his family’s livery yard. With an eye to a future career in coaching since some restrictions were lifted the Level 3 coach has been doing some coaching with youngsters in Sheffield and is hoping to complete his UEFA B Licence.
