Welcome To Guiseley Russell Norton

We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Russell Norton as our new Head of First Team Medical.

Despite being just 24, and only two years into his post-qualification career, he comes with a wealth of experience including work at Sheffield United, Rotherham and Rugby League side Hull FC.

Russell joins the club following a recommendation from a Rotherham colleague and praised the club, saying he was impressed with how the club is run and enjoys being part of the team, noting the hardworking players and faithful supporters as particular draws to the club.

“It’s a great opportunity, the club comes with a great reputation” Russell said, sounding pleased to be on board with The Lions, but said he knew what he was getting into “It’s Vanarama National League North football, it’s rough and ready and that’s what we like!”. However he didn’t seem phased by the challenges he’s faced so far describing them as “not a challenge, more of a pleasure”.

Russell will work with The Lions on match days alongside his work at Lincoln City academy and his contributions at Rotherham United. We’d like to wish Russell the best of luck for his time at Nethermoor and hope that he enjoys his stay with us.

Welcome to Nethermoor Russell!
