10:33am Thursday 5th July 2012 in Sport
Guiseley manager Steve Kittrick is continuing to rebuild his squad for the forthcoming season.
Striker Chris Mason and winger Nicky Boshell are the latest players to move to Nethermoor.
Mason, 23, has been recruited from League of Wales side Bala Town.
He started his career at Bury and has had spell in Malta with Florianna and Sweden with Ange IF.
Mason also played for Chorley before moving to Bala. Guiseley have signed him subject to receiving international clearance from the Welsh FA.
Boshell, the younger brother of midfieldman Danny, has had experience with Huddersfield Town and Guiseley’s new Blue Square Bet North rivals Bradford Park Avenue.
The new men are expected to be at Nethermoor on Saturday along with the rest of the first team squad after training.
They are expected to be there around 12.30pm to meet with the spectators who have been encouraged to paint the ground.
Supporters are urged to take along their paint brushes with work starting from 9.30am on both days.
Refreshments will be provided throughout both days as Nethermoor is spruced up.
“It is a chance for the players to meet some of the workers and the fans and to see the refurbishments for themselves,” said Kittrick.
It is likely that, thanks to the sterling efforts of contractors and volunteers, plus Neil Shackleton and his brother-in-law, they will see: Dressing-room refurbishment, with a swap of the home and away rooms, plus new seating and signage Newly-laid turf as part of the widening and levelling process Newly-installed drainage, which is already having a positive effect on curbing flooding and resurfacing of the car park end, which has provided more space behind the goal Construction of new dug outs is a job still to be completed.
Jobs that are due to be completed soon are new dug outs (before the pre-season friendly against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, July 21 New fencing by the same date, and new signage, plus cladding of the equipment container (including logo) and the new compound next to the seated stand.
To help with all the work, Supporters' Club chairman Adam Hodgson has presented the club's chief executive officer Adrian Towers with a cheque, the money from which will go towards finishing ground development projects and a pair of new-style ‘box’ goal nets.
