Lions Complete Pre-Season With 2-3 Loss

Guiseley’s  wrapped up their pre-season campaign with a narrow a narrow 2-3 defeat to Barnsley U23’s at Nethermoor this evening.

Scott Smith and Alex Purver had both gone close before Kayode Odejayi backheeled a loose ball to wrong foot Jake Greatorex.

Tai-Reece Chisholm then showed great composure to bag a brace and put his side ahead.

Parity was restored early in the second period when a towering Harry Flowers header found the back of the net.

However, with the game seemingly petering out with the spoils shared, the visitors produced a length of the field move which ended with Chisholm playing the ball into the path of A Trialist who finished with a crisp shot beyond Jon Worsnop.

So pre-season is now complete and it’s on to Boston United on Saturday where the new season finally kicks off.
