10 Men Young Lions See Off Chesterfield

Guiseley Academy came from behind in their National League U-19 Alliance North Division game with visitors Chesterfield to win 3-1 at the Bodington Sports Hub in Leeds, writes Rachel O’Connor.

This was despite having to play eighty minutes of the game with ten men after defender Lewin Storton was shown a red card for allegedly being the last man when he committed a foul.

It made little difference to a Guiseley side who notched their third successive win and extended their unbeaten run to six games.

Guiseley found the net through full-backs Kyle Burrows and K’Marni Miller and substitute George Sebine, who had replaced striker Danyaal Khan in the 60th minute.

Guiseley’s team was: Callum Bradbury; Kyle Burrows, Lewin Storton, Freddie Westfall, K’Marni Miller; Jack Mason, Sam Walters, Max Dickinson, Oliver Storr; Danyaal Khan, Denelle Godfrey.

Subs: Robbie Murray (for Storr 60 mins), Geirge Sebine (for Khan 60 mins), Joe Taylor (for Godfrey 80 mins), Marley Spence (for Burrows 85 mins).

Guiseley’s next league game is at home on January 31st to neighbours and league leaders Farsley Celtic.

Farsley top the table with 29 points from 12 games while fourth placed Guiseley have 20 points from ten games.

Chester, with 22 points from 14 games, and Boston United, with 21 points from 13 games, separate the two Yorkshire clubs in the table.

Former Guiseley Academy player Ben Whitfield, the former Bournemouth player now at Barrow, follows fellow Academy graduate Jake Young in being nominated for the League Two Player-of-the-Month.

Young was nominated for his prolific scoring whilst on loan at Swindon Town from parent club Bradford City.
