Academy Given Sponsorship Boost

Guiseley AFC’s Academy are being given the best possible chance to perform at their best when they play in the National League U-19’s Champion of Champions final on Wednesday.

When The Young Lions stride out against trophy holders Boreham Wood at Oxford for the 2pm kick-off they will be looking smart in a new kit provided by Ridgeworks IT and Yorkshire Payments from our partners Macron Cardiff.

They will also have new training tops provided by the team’s major sponsor Grant Thornton.

And above all they will be fresh and ready for the challenge having stayed overnight in a hotel courtesy of Guiseley AFC Supporters’ Club.

Supporters’ Club Chairman Mick Glossop said:”Our Donation means that the Academy team and management will be able to go down to Oxford the night before so the team will be fully rested and prepared for the final “We hope that by doing this we have helped give the squad the best possible chance of winning the final which kicks-off at 2pm.

“Regardless of the result the Supporters’ Club would like to put on record our thanks to Dave Currie, Danny Ellis and the players for all their hard work this season. What they have achieved already is amazing and has raised the profile of the Academy and Club as a whole.

“We are all so very proud of you, just go out, wear the shirt with pride and give it your best.”

Academy manager Dave Currie said: “We are so grateful to everyone for all their support, the overnight stay will enable us to fully prepare for the biggest challenge we have ever faced and the lads will get a massive boost from having a new kit to play in. We cannot thank all our supporters and sponsors enough, the best thing we can do is reward them with a win.”
