Academy through in FA Youth Cup

Guiseley 3 Brighouse Town 1


In Thursday night’s dramatic FA Youth Cup match, Guiseley came away from Brighouse with a 3-1 win.

After being 1-0 down at half time, it was all to play for in the second half for both teams. On the 50th minute, Ben Whitfield took a shot on from the edge of the area which found the bottom corner. With Guiseley pressing more and more but not finding the target, all thoughts were starting to turn towards extra time. This was until in the 85th minute when Luke Porritt’s on-target shot spun off a defender and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to make it 2-1 to Guiseley.
Due to  the minutes and seconds running out for Brighouse, they pushed forward for the equaliser.  This left Guiseley the chance to counter attack, which they did through Redmond Lee and Dale Spink. After Redmond’s pace up the field with the ball, then a great pass through to Dale, all he had to do was slot it in the net to finish off the game. After his great goal  celebration, the game was restarted and seconds later the final whistle was blown.
