GUISELEY have announced the news that young striker Adam Haw, who made his first team debut last season, has signed another contract with the club.

The 19 year-old Guiseley Academy graduate, who made one start in the National League North and had six further appearances from the subs bench, netted his maiden goal in the 1-1 draw at Kettering Town.

He followed this up with a second strike in the 2-0 FA Trophy win over Chorley.

He is now looking forward to gaining more minutes on the pitch and scoring more goals for the first team.

Haw said: “As a local lad from Ilkley I look forward to playing in front of a home crowd.

“That is something we missed last season due to Covid and I am looking forward to experiencing that.

“It was so weird last season but hopefully things will return to normal.”

A prolific striker with the hugely successful Guiseley Academy, Haw had a 20 day trial with Brentford earlier this year along with teammate Lewis Hey.

In that spell the pair played against Chelsea's Under-23s, an experience Haw was grateful for.

He said: “It was an opportunity not to be missed, to be playing in the amazing set up at Chelsea was a real experience.

“The full time training and coaching at Brentford got my fitness level up and it has fired me up for the new season and I cannot wait for training to start.

“I am really happy at Guiseley and I am hoping for more game time in the coming season.

“I will be working hard to achieve this.”

He added: “My aim this season is to break through and grab a regular place in the first team.

“I was just happy to be around the first team squad last season but now I want to push on.”

Haw could soon be turning out in front of another top class youth side too.

Guiseley confirmed on Friday that Everton's Under-23s will visit for a friendly clash ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

The fixture, which will be played at Nethermoor, is set for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday, July 17.

Manager David Unsworth's team are due to go to Guiseley's divisional counterparts Chorley a fortnight later on Saturday, August 3.
