NICKY Boshell is targeting a regular starting spot for Guiseley as he improves his fitness.

The 28-year-old midfielder scored an impressive 11 goals in 19 games during his first spell at Nethermoor, which ended early last year before a summer switch to Bradford Park Avenue.

This summer, he returned to the Lions to be reunited with his brother Danny, who is assistant player-manager, and has featured in all three league matches.

"It's been a while since I last played for Guiseley and I am really pleased to be back," confessed Nicky.

"The move was on the cards for a while and it's always a good atmosphere in the dressing room, and there is plenty of banter with my brother Danny."

However, the younger Boshell admitted: "I'm a couple of weeks behind a lot of the lads training-wise, but getting on against Worcester and getting some game-time over the next few weeks will hopefully help me push for a starting place soon."

Left back Alex McQuade, a genuine new boy, was man of the match in the 1-0 victory over Worcester City, which maintained Guiseley's perfect start to the campaign.

Manager Mark Bower said: "Alex has been training with a few full-time squads and is a fit lad, which is paying dividends."

McQuade, whose attacking prowess has been apparent this season, can play centre back or left back but admits: "You get more freedom at left back."

He added: "I am surprised at the confidence of the lads but Danny Ellis and Ben Parker are unbeaten in central defence and I have settled in well.

"I went to Saturday's opponents AFC Fylde at the start of the season to get some fitness. They have signed a few players but we played well against Worcester and I think we can do them."
