GUISELEY have signed former Oldham Athletic, Bury and Doncaster Rovers centre-back Adam Lockwood - the Conference National side’s first capture of the summer.

The Wakefield-born defender, 33, spent a brief spell early in Mark Bower’s reign at Nethermoor before heading over the Pennines to Oldham - and his signing represents a coup for the club.

Lockwood was out of contract with the Latics, but had been offered fresh terms, but has elected to leave the club and take on a fresh challenge with Guiseley back across the Pennines.

Lockwood, who was coaching assistant to Dean Holden during his brief caretaker spell in charge at Boundary Park towards the end of last season, told the YEP: “I have been at the club before and know what it is about and it is a really well-run club.

“It is a club who are forward thinking and who want to better themselves and it is nice to be part of that.”

Lockwood’s arrival completes a good few days for the club, who have re-signed full-back Ryan Toulson.
