Guiseley appoint new manager

Former Bury and Ossett United boss Andy Welsh has been appointed Guiseley's new manager.

The club say he was the "overwhelming choice" to succeed Paul Phillips, who lasted just 10 months in the role before parting ways with the club in mid-September.

Liam Tongue has been in caretaker charge ever since, and he will remain in the post for the Lions' Northern Premier League home game against Marine on Tuesday night.

They have won their last four matches in all competitions and currently sit 13th in the league table, four points adrift of the play-offs.

Following his appointment, Welsh said: "We are excited to get started at Guiseley - a club in non-league with a lot of history.

"The potential to help grow the fan base and bringing together the local community to support and get behind their team is something we are looking forward to.

"This league is a very tough division, and we need everyone getting behind the team home and away to bring that feel good factor back to the stands."
