With their opening Skrill North fixture now just nine days away, Guiseley have added a striker.

They have signed Adam Priestley, who was a triple winner in Farsley’s end-of-season awards in 2012-13.

The forward won ‘gongs’ for being players’ player, managers’ player and top goal-scorer, bagging 27 for the Evo-Stik Division One North club, and also scored in a pre-season friendly against the Lions a year ago, which Farsley won 2-1.

It was his first season there after moving from cash-strapped Garforth Town, where he was also top scorer in 2011-12.

Steve Kittrick’s signing of the striker has proved the end of an interesting few months for Priestley, who has also had trials with FC Halifax Town and Hyde, and played for Gibraltar – the place of his birth.

Priestley was proud to have played for 20 minutes in the 3-1 defeat against Hibernian but was gutted to miss Gib-raltar’s subsequent match against Charlton.

He has already been on target for the Lions, scoring in the 3-1 defeat of Brighouse Town, who have since signed Guise-ley’s back-up keeper Jacob Giles.

Priestley may not be the end of Guiseley’s outfield signings. Although generally pleased with the 3-1 victory at Wakefield on Tuesday night, Kittrick hasn’t ruled out another capture.

He said: “We are not too far off but we just need one more player to get where we need to be. Whether we get that player (from outside) or we get him from within, I don’t know – nobody has put their hand up yet – but it was a good performance from us.”

On the Wakefield match, Kittrick said: “We had five chances to score in the first half and their goal came totally out of the blue.

“The kid hit it that sweet that he will never hit it like that again but it was a good work out.

“But we kept it well too and there were a lot of pleasing things and not many disappointing things, and it is all a matter of working towards a week on Saturday.

“Kyle Harrison has done well and Zak Dale has come on and made a difference again, while Wayne Brooksby and Gavin Roth-ery are getting back to their best.

“James Burgess did well first half, Jack Rea has done well and Jameel Ible is a good player.

“Andy (Holdsworth) is tidy and Danny (Ellis) is tidy, and Marshy (Phil Marsh) got his goal again and Hobbo (Craig Hobson) did well, so it is about everybody competing and wanting to be here and have that hunger. Spencer Harris did well too from centre half into midfield.

“You could see a lot of hunger from everybody, which is sometimes missing.

“There are a lot of players here who want to do well for the club, and that is massive.”

As for Saturday’s match against Farsley, Kittrick said: “It will be a tougher chall-enge than Wakefield.

“They are a good side and there are a lot of players there who have played at this level, and one or two who have played for me so they will want to get one over on us but it is about getting a performance. That’s what I’ll be looking for.”
