Lions await Pilgrims’ visit

Guiseley host Boston United in the Blue Square Bet North this Saturday, and the Lions will be hoping for a similar result to the last time the pair met. 

In November, the Lions came away from the Jakemans Stadium with a 3-1 win thanks to goals from Kevin Holsgrove (2) and Wayne Brooksby.

The sides have played out a number of entertaining fixtures in recent times, not least the captivating play-off semi-final two seasons ago.

Last season’s fixtures saw Guiseley come out on top with a 2-1 win at Nethermoor thanks to a double from Andy Holdsworth, while the return yielded a 3-3 draw.

This game could see the squad’s new additions, Jake Lawlor and Phil Marsh, making their League debuts, while Matt Wilson will be looking to continue his ‘unfinished business’ from last season’s loan spell, against the team with whom he has also been on loan recently.  

Following Saturday’s match, the Lions travel to Gloucester City on Tuesday 12th February and Vauxhall Motors on Saturday 16th.

Prices for the Boston game are £10 for adults, £6 for concessions and £4 for 12-to-16 year-olds, and the kick-off is at 3 pm.
