Gabriel Johnson Links Up with Aaron Martin At Nethermoor Park
Guiseley AFC have this morning confirmed the signing of striker Gabriel Johnson from Brighouse Town, the six foot striker is hoping to maintain his prolific partnership with Aaron Martin who also arrived at Nethermoor Park earlier this week.
Johnson, who had spells as a youngster with Manchester United and Leeds United before joining the academy at Sheffield United has also had spells at Hallam FC, Sheffield FC, Doncaster Rovers and Brighouse Town. He made 33 appearances, scoring 10 goals last season for Brighouse Town, but more importantly he had 18 assists for his strike partner Aaron Martin.
Speaking about signing for the Lions Gabriel Johnson said, “I am looking forward to the challenge of stepping up a level to a club a lot bigger than the one I was at and it gives you an opportunity to be seen on a bigger stage. I’ve heard good things about the club from my friends who have played at Nethermoor Park in the past so i cannot wait to get started.
There were a few factors that made me sign for the club, firstly Guiseley were top of my list in terms of new clubs, there is a good stadium, a great set of fans and everyone i spoke to recommended joining Guiseley. Secondly playing with Aaron Martin again was key, I got 18 assists last season, he got 30 goals so we want to recreate that partnership again. I’m looking to hit the ground running and I cannot wait to make the step up and visit the bigger stadiums and make a real impact.”
