GUISELEY have signed Zimbabwean international Cliff Moyo from FC Halifax Town.

The 25 year-old defender departed the Shaymen at the end of last season after a two-year spell.

In his first campaign at the Shay he helped the club win promotion to the National League.

He played 47 games for Halifax in total, having also featured for Barrow, Northwich Victoria, Nantwich Town and Alfreton Town, where he worked with joint first-team manager Russ O’Neill.

His first call-up to the Zimbabwe national team came in March 2018, making his debut in the semi-final of the 2018 Four Nations Tournament.

In May 2018 he was called up to the Matabeleland football team for the 2018 ConIFA World Football Cup.

The capture of Moyo comes after the Lions striker Kayode Odejayi signed a new contract at Nethermoor.

After leaving Stockport County at the end of the 2016/17 season, Odejayi made 41 appearances for Guiseley last season.

The veteran striker has made over 600 appearances over the course of his career, the highlights of which are a cap for the Nigerian national team and scoring the goal for Barnsley which knocked Chelsea out of the FA Cup in 2008.

Odejayi, who is a personal trainer outside of football and is doing his Level 4 qualification in strength and conditioning, has also agreed to assist the coaching team with a strength and conditioning programme over the course of the season.
