GUISELEY have been handed a triple boost with Steven Drench, Wayne Brooksby and Oli Johnson all signing fresh terms ahead of the new season.

Having played key roles in helping the Lions into the Vanarama National League, the three are all likely to form part of Mark Bower’s squad for the coming campaign in the top tier of non-league football.

Goalkeeper Drench has been with the club since the club’s debut season in the Conference North while Brooksby arrived a season later with both playing major roles in the Lions’ successes over recent seasons.

The former North Ferriby United winger will be joined next season by fellow forward Johnson, who is approaching his second full season with the club.

Bower said: “Steven, Wayne and OJ have been important players in our squad over recent seasons and I’m thrilled that all three want to be part of our first season in the Vanarama National League.

“Drenchy’s quality in goal has been there for all to see in recent years while Wayne will only get better with the step-up next season.

“OJ has experience at higher levels and we know he has the quality to help us compete and deal with the higher standard of opposition we’ll come up against.”

The Conference fixtures are due out at the start of July.
