Chairman Gary Douglas introduces new Guiseley manager Danny Ellis and his assistant Danny Forrest

Guiseley have appointed club legend Danny Ellis as their new manager as they prepare for life back in the Northern Premier League.

Ellis made over 400 appearances for the Lions and he won the NPL Premier Division title with them as a player in 2010.

He also works for the academy which has been very successful in producing players for the first team.

Ellis has signed a two-year contract.

Chairman Gary Douglas said: “As the club enters a new era in the Northern Premier League it was imperative that we appointed a management team who could bring the club together. I feel in appointing the two Dannys we can build again on the solid base we at Guiseley have established over the past three decades.

“From speaking to the new management team I know we will be recruiting players who wish to play for this great club and for each other with total commitment. Danny and Danny are the guys to do this and I am confident we will all enjoy the football next season.”

Ellis will be assisted by an ex-Guiseley striker in Danny Forrest who leaves his post as manager of Silsden.
