On the new signing, Shaw commented, "Toby has spent some time training and playing with us in recent weeks and through his endeavour and level of performance he gave us no other choice than to offer him this opportunity. He plays the game with real personality, spirit and industry in wide positions, and he is dangerous in 1 v 1 situations and picking up little pockets of space behind the opposition midfield."

"He is a young man you would definitely go in the trenches with - gritty, tough and loads of character and I am really excited about the potential player we may have found that wouldn’t have been on anybody else’s radar. The challenge for him is to go and add numbers to his game in the Northern Premier League next season and I think he is capable of some big performances for us in the coming months."

A player who likes to run with the ball and make things happen, Gould’s style of play will excite the Trinity faithful, as he likes to get on the front foot. As a youngster, Gould spent time at the likes of QPR and Fulham and will bring creativity and flair to the flanks. He is another young gun that fits Shaw’s brief of putting together a young, vibrant squad, willing to work hard and improve.

“I am looking forward to getting my head down and working towards something special with Gainsborough. It’s an exciting step for me, working with some quality coaches and exciting players, so I’m buzzing to get started”. Welcome, Toby!
