Gainsborough Trinity have signed Will Thornton, Lloyd Allinson and Michael Williams.
22-year-old centre-back Will Thornton joins from Guiseley on an initial month’s loan deal. Manager Curtis Woodhouse said:
“I am delighted to get Will Thornton through the door; a big, strong, athletic centre-back that’s also a leader. Will is just what we need right now and I’m sure he will be a really big player for us and make an immediate impact.”
Thornton joins alongside a fellow Guiseley player in goalkeeper Lloyd Allinson. He joins on dual registration forms and is a product of the Huddersfield Town academy, making his senior debut against Brentford In 2016.
Woodhouse said: “I am really pleased to to get Lloyd at Gainsborough Trinity. He is a very good goalkeeper with lots of experience. He is somebody that will help the back four massively. Keeping clean sheets isn’t something we have done enough of, but after Tuesday night’s clean sheet (away at Dunston in the FA Trophy) we will look to build on that and Lloyd is an important part of that process.”
Completing the trio is Michael Williams, Woodhouse’s second recent signing from Sheffield FC. Woodhouse said of the midfielder:
“Michael is another box to box midfielder that does everything I like my midfielders to do; clears them off the line at one end and scores them at the other. Technically very good and strikes a great ball, Michael brings goals from midfield which has been lacking, and again, outstanding energy to fit into the high press I demand from my teams.”
