Lions Handed Double Loan Boost

We have been handed a major boost ahead of the Emirates FA Cup game against Fleetwood Town at Nethermoor on Monday.

Centre-back Jo Cummings and winger Louis Walsh have had their deals with the club extended until the New Year and both will be available for selection for the prestigious game against Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town which will be televised live on BT Sport.

Cummings, an imposing 20 year-old, initially joined the club on a month’s loan from Charlton Athletic. This weekend he resigned for the club whilst Barnsley FC winger Walsh had his loan extended.

Sheffield-based Cummings linked up with the Addicks from Sheffield United towards the end of the 2016/17 season, following a successful trial. Netting a goal on his debut for Charlton Under-23s he quickly became an important member of the Charlton Development Squad that retained the Professional Development League 2 South title.

Cummings came through the Academy at Sheffield United to make his senior debut for the Blades when coming on as a substitute in 4–2 victory over Grimsby Town in an EFL Trophy match in November 2016.

Barnsley U-23 prospect Walsh joined Guiseley on a one-month loan from Barnsley FC and made an excellent debut at Darlington. The 18 year-old winger played for Barnsley against Guiseley in last summer’s pre-season friendly.

Walsh signed for Barnsley in July 2018 after some fine performances at U-23 level during the 2017/18 campaign. Blessed with incredible acceleration and terrific technique, the flying winger ghosts past defenders with consummate ease and frequently provides teammates with assists while contributing with goals himself.

Both players will be looking to play a part in Monday’s game as Guiseley make history by playing in Emirates FA Cup Second Round for two successive seasons.

By the time the 8pm kick-off comes round there will be an added incentive for Russ O’Neill and Marcus Bignot’s Guiseley side as the Third Round Draw will have already been made earlier that evening.
