It’s an extremely proud moment for me to sign for a club as big as Gainsbrough Trinity. Having played three leagues below last season at Hallam. I’ve really enjoyed being at the club for a few weeks working with all the staff and players. It has been top draw! The 'keeper joked, "Being the oldest 20 year old going, means I’m very young as a goalkeeper and I am not expecting to start, but I feel I can push Jacko to help improve us both. The goal for me this season is to get as many minutes as possible and if the opportunity arises to grasp it with both hands."

He finished by thanking Curtis for the opportunity, "Thanks to the gaffer for giving me the opportunity. I cannot wait for the season to start!"

Woodhouse was obviously pleased to have Leverton on board, admitting, "It is great to have James in with us. He’s really impressed in pre-season and he has trained really well. I think it’s important Tom (Jackson) has some competition for that number one shirt and James will give him that. I’m happy we have two good goalkeepers for the coming season and that is sorted now."

Welcome to the club James!
