After making over 200 appearances during Craig Parry’s reign at Pontefract Collieries, the right-back knows all about the high-intensity football in which he has flourished over the last few seasons.

He said: “It’s a great club, we’ve played here [Sandy Lane] a few times and enjoyed it.

"It looks a lot better now and all the aspirations moving forward are great. It’s a big club that can go a lot further up the leagues than where we are currently.

“When we have played here before, there were always a lot of fans here - they always give everything.

"It’s a big club at the end of the day and when we’ve played here before it seems to be a great atmosphere.

"It has always looked like a big family when we have played here before and it is good to get into it.”

And Greenhough believes that working alongside some familiar faces will help him hit the ground running.

“Because I’ve been at Pontefract with all the coaches, we’ve had a good few years,” he said.

"We’ve been promoted twice and got to the play-offs for the last two seasons in the Northern Premier League.

"I think we can bring a lot to this club and hopefully push us forward next year.”

With all the positives that have come to light about Parry’s tactics, many believe that the attacking football and high tempo will give the Tigers the running start the side will need.

“I’m positive we will start off brightly,” he said. “The way Craig sets up suits everybody down to a tee. When we get going it will just be attacking all the time.

“We’ve obviously got a lot better surface to get the ball down and play [with the newly-installed 3G pitch].

"It will help us attack a lot quicker. I think playing the style we can play will give us the belief to give us a great chance for promotion.”
