Hinckley next at Nethermoor for last league game

Guiseley host Hinckley United in their final scheduled Blue Square Bet North game on Saturday (27th), and they will hope to end the normal season on a high before the play-offs.

The Lions have had a tough run of games recently but managed to pull out some impressive performances and results, beating both Chester FC and Harrogate Town and drawing at play-off rivals FC Halifax Town.

With Hinckley already relegated and set to be playing in the Southern Premier division next season, Steve Kittrick’s men face a potential banana skin and the Knitters caused a fair few problems of their own in the reverse fixture at the Greene King Stadium in December.

The Lions eventually ran out 3-0 winners thanks to goals from Wayne Brooksby, Danny Boshell and Josh Wilson, but it wasn’t as convincing as the scoreline suggests.

As a special thank-you to the fans, and to celebrate our link with the Guiseley Juniors, this Saturday is to be Lions Share Day, meaning that there is half-price admission of £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and £2 for 12-16-year-olds. If you wear a Guiseley shirt, however, past or present, you can get in absolutely free.

There will also be a lap of honour and a guard of honour from the Juniors for what should be a really enjoyable day as the club looks to go into the play-offs in positive fashion.
