Guiseley AFC have signed 21-year-old Joe Green to compete for the goalkeeper’s jersey alongside Jonny Maxted.
The 6`5” tall Green joins after helping our former manager Steve Kittrick’s Scarborough Athletic to rise into the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North play-offs last season.
Green played for Sheffield FC at 18 before hooking up with Sheffield United.
The Blades had four ‘keepers and Green saw little way to make progress so took up a four-year football and business scholarship offer at Monroe College, New York.
He quickly returned to England after finding the football with Monroe Mustangs not living up to expectations.
Green was then given an opportunity by John Sheridan at League Two Newport County, who were seeking a back-up ‘keeper.
Green made one first-team appearance for the Exiles in 2015/16, a substitute appearance in an FA Cup tie against Blackburn Rovers.
He joined Scarborough in February after a short spell playing for Handsworth Parramore and Hemsworth Miners Welfare.
Of his move to Nethermoor the Barnsley-based Green said: “I am looking forward to joining up with some great lads and to pushing Jonny for the number one spot. I am looking forward to us pushing each other to be better players. I can’t wait to get going and I will be going all out to show what I can do”.
