Nice When a Punt Comes Off!

When you are the sum total of Blue Square Bet North club Guiseley’s scouting network, as well as the manager, it….

….makes it extra special when a punt comes off.

Steve Kittrick must have been smiling inwardly and outwardly last Saturday after they defeated Gainsborough Trinity 2-0 at Nethermoor.

With Danny Boshell tweaking a hamstring as early as the 16th minute, he gave former York City and Hull City defender Dean Lisles his debut.

Kittrick said afterwards: “Dean has looked good in training and he told me after the Trinity match that it was the first time he has kicked a ball in anger for twelve months! It could have gone either way!”

Lisles, who isn’t 20 until May 5th, signed for the Lions last month, having been released by the Minstermen in October 2010.

Another new face at Nethermoor is Matt Wilson, who Kittrick calls “a quality player”.

The Lions boss added: “I tried to sign him in the summer but he had a two-year contract at Alfreton Town, and has since had a few injuries and found himself out of the side.”
