Lions v Celtic is NLP’s star game

The Non-League Paper are giving bumper coverage to the crunch Blue Square Bet North clash between Guiseley and Stalybridge Celtic this weekend.

With three games of the season remaining both clubs have plenty to play for – Guiseley remain in with a shot at the league title, while Celtic are fighting for a play-off place.

Second-placed Guiseley are guaranteed a place in the play-offs but will be hoping to avoid them by overhauling the two-point lead held by table-toppers Hyde and securing automatic promotion.

The Celts are currently two points off the top five and need one of the sides above them to slip up if they are to continue their season into May.

With so much at stake for both sides it should be one of the Step 2 games of the season and for that reason it’s been selected as The NLP’s Conference North star game on Sunday.

That means an extended 450-word report plus the best pictures and post-match reaction. So for top coverage of the season-defining fixture, make sure you pick up your copy of the paper this weekend!
