Guiseley have added experience to their defence with the signing of centre-back Scott Garner from Halifax Town.

The Lions will be looking for Garner to guide the club’s younger defenders – Niall Heaton, Will Thornton, Louie Swain and Harry Flowers – during the course of the upcoming National League North campaign.

The 28 year-old Garner joined FC Halifax from Boston United and was a vital part of the Town squad that gained promotion to the National League two seasons ago.

His previous clubs include Mansfield Town, Grimsby Town, Cambridge United and Lincoln City.

A product of the Leicester City youth system Garner signed a professional contract with the Foxes but never made a first team appearance.

Twice capped by England C, Garner said: “I like to think that I’m a winner. I don’t like to lose at all.”
