GUISELEY have confirmed that defender Josh Ashman has signed a one month loan deal with Belper Town.

The former Sheffield Wednesday U21 captain has made 13 appearances this season and will now join the Nailers until 28 December to boost his playing time.

Belper were relegated to the Pitching In Northern Premeir League East Division last season but have started the 2023/24 campaign well and are currently occupying the last play off spot.

Lee Attenborough’s men are in 5th place, four points behind league leaders Stockton Town.

During Ashman’s stay with the Derbyshire side, Belper are due to face Ossett United, Ashington, Cleethorpes Town, Winterton Rangers, Grimsby Borough and Sheffield FC during a packed festive fixture list.

Former Lions midfielder James Cadman joined Town in the summer.
