Hyde United’s Luke Porritt says he wants to add something different to a strong Hyde United side as they aim for promotion writes Tom Feaheny.
The young winger who joined after being at Guiseley for a past few seasons, says he is looking forward to the challenge.
“I’m very happy with my move to Hyde, I played against them when I was on loan at Ossett Albion they are a very strong side and hope to add to the squad. I’ve spoke to Darren and David a lot these past weeks and seems like a good opportunity for me to develop in my career.”
“I know a little about the league from my experience out at Ossett Albion. I know that it’s a very physical and personally I think there are some great players with in the league and brilliant teams who like to play attractive football
“My personal aims are to stay strong and fit all through the season and possibly help Hyde reach the play offs or even automatic promotion. I think with the squad I’ve seen from past experience and knowing a few lads from there I think there is a massive chance we can push for promotion.”
After several years at the Vanarama National League club Porritt looked back at his time at Nethermoor Park.
“I’ve had a lot of good memories at Guiseley, but if I’m being specific I would say the academy was one of them just because the set of lads around me were brilliant and the coaches were fantastic.
“Dave Danny and Colin really made the lads bring themselves out, the fa youth cup run we went on was a massive positive I take from my time at guiseley. The first team also built me up to become a man when playing on and off the field.
“My best moment at the first team would 100% be starting away at Tranmere rovers it was a brilliant experience in a brilliant ground.”
Porritt remains in a coaching role with Guiseley within the club’s Community Foundation, he says he always wanted to keep the role.
“I love my role in the community, I’m glad I can stay on and do what I enjoy along side football. Me and ben put a lot of effort in to what we do and hoping I can make some good footballers or at least make young ones to enjoy football.”
