26-year-old East joined the club in June 2018 from neighbours Guiseley. Although primarily a full-back, East can operate in central midfield and has proved an asset in both positions throughout his career.
He came through the ranks at Hull City but was released after just two senior outings for the Tigers. The defender did, however, play regular first-team football during a loan spell with Northampton Town in 2012. Portsmouth moved to secure his services in 2013, he left Portsmouth at the end of the 2014/15 season after spending time on loan at Aldershot Town and sealed a move to Grimsby Town of the National League in June 2015. Following the move to the Mariners he played a crucial role in helping the club gain promotion to League Two via the play-offs. Grimsby didn’t hand East a new deal after the Wembley win, but Guiseley swooped to tie him to a deal at Nethermoor in July 2016.
East is also a part of the Horsfall College of Sport’s coaching team.
