Guiseley Sign Former Leicester City Defender

Guiseley Sign Ben Frempah 

Guiseley AFC have today confirmed the signing of young defender Ben Frempah from Vanarama National League side Solihull Moors. Frempah started out as a forward later converting to centre-back and will be in the squad for Torquay United this weekend.


Born in Italy, Frempah played youth football for Fisher FC and had trials with Charlton Athletic where he played a handful of Under-18 games. He moved on to Ryman League side Cray Wanderers as a 17 year-old and had trials at Chesterfield but whilst there the opportunity arose to trial at Leicester City and he signed a professional deal but with the club for the 2013-14 season.

With the club winning the Championship that season they had a big squad and many first team players played in the Under-21s so opportunities for young players were limited. In July 2014 he left Leicester to join Scottish side Ross County and became a fans’ favourite but with the arrival of a new manager.

Frempah then spent sixteen weeks on the sidelines after sustaining a broken foot he was one of a number of players released at the end of the season.  He then played briefly for Isthmian League side Hendon in early 2015-16 season before joining Solihull Moors.
