John Johnston Joins

We’re delighted to announce the signing of midfielder John Johnston on a contract until the end of the 2022/23 season following his release from Kidsgrove Athletic.

John, 27, has vast experience in the National League North having played for Salford and Altrincham, before signing for Chester for an undisclosed fee. He has also played under Russ O’Neill in the Vanarama National League for Alfreton Town.

Russ O’Neill added “JJ is a fabulous signing for the club, the calibre of player that I thought was out of reach for us here at Guiseley at this stage of his career if I’m honest. I know JJ inside out and I have kept in contact with him ever since selling him to Salford, he was electric for us as a youngster and really excelled.

He’s now 27 and with two league titles under his belt at Salford and then further titles at Altrincham and numerous transfer fees later he is coming to us with fantastic experience and at a great age. He knows the type of environment we try to create and rises to that challenge, I will be looking for him to be more than just a good young player now.

If we can get him to half the player we sold I’m sure he will be a big hit with the supporters and players alike.”

John is eligible to face Boston United at Nethermoor tomorrow, tickets are available online now or at the turnstiles on the day with cash payment only.
