Former player signs deal as he continues return

Former player signs deal as he continues return

Former Leeds United defender Ben Parker has signed a deal with non-league Guiseley AFC after spending most of the first half of the season with the club on non-contract terms.

Parker has impressed since arriving at Guiseley in September and he has made 13 appearances for them in the Skrill Conference North Division, this after he had started the season as a co-commentator on Leeds games on BBC Radio Leeds.

The 26-year-old is looking to get his career back on track after injuries ravaged his career at Elland Road, which eventually saw him released in the summer of 2012.

Parker looked to have a promising career with Leeds ahead of him after making his debut as a 19-year-old in 2007.

He went on to make 55 appearances for Leeds including 31 in Simon Grayson`s first half season in charge of the club in 2008/09. He helped the club reach the play-offs in that season and he will probably be best remembered for his marauding run down the left before setting up Luciano Becchio for Leeds goal, in the play-off semi-final against Millwall at Elland Road.

His form that season saw him rewarded with a new three-year deal that summer but a hamstring injury on the opening day of the following season against Exeter City was the start of his injury problems.

He made just nine appearances in his last three seasons at Leeds as a number of serious injuries saw him require seven operations during that time.
