Some information about Guiseley
Guiseley AFC are a community based football club playing in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Premier Division. We had huge on-field success since winning the Northern Premier League in our centenary year, we achieved consecutive play-off spots in each of our five seasons in the Vanarama National League North. After play-off final defeats in the 2010-11 and 2013-14 seasons, we finally gained promotion by coming from 2-0 down to win 3-2 against Chorley. A debut campaign in the Vanarama National League in 2015-16 saw many highs and lows. After being well clear of the relegation zone for much of the season, it ultimately took a thrilling 4-3 win over Torquay United to secure safety on the last day of the season.
After a three year spell in non league’s top tier which included historic wins over Lincoln City, Wrexham and many more we were relegated back to the Vanarama National League North. After two covid disrupted seasons The Lions struggled to recover and were back in the Northern Premier League for the first time in 12 years at the start of the 2022/23 season.
There has been success in the Emirates FA Cup in recent years reaching the second round in 2017 and 2018 knocking out Accrington Stanley and Cambridge United on the way, The Lions lost narrowly to AFC Wimbledon at their Plough Lane home in the first round in 2021.
Away from the first team we continue to cement our place at the heart of the local community. Our Community Foundation is some eighteen months old and is currently applying for charitable status. The Foundation works with people of all ages, races and creeds to increase sports participation and healthy lifestyles. To this end it has run sports programmes that range from Archery, Football and Goalkeeper training for youngsters to chair based exercise classes for the over 60s.
The club also formed an Academy In 2013 and recruited 25 16 -19 year olds who attend full time education in the morning and football training in the afternoon. The youngsters are studying for a BTEC Level 3 in Sport which is a University entry level qualification and the club is adamant that the education element is as important as the football. Last season the club worked with Carr Manor Community School, an inner city Leeds High School and while this will continue the aim is to recruit a further 25 players who will attend Shipley College. This obviously gives rise to the need for two teams, the first of which will continue to play in the Football Conference Youth Alliance whilst the other will play in the Elite Division of the Colleges League.
