Valsau Bags Young Lions A Point

Guiseley Academy battled for a point against third-placed Solihull Moors in their latest National League Academy North game, writes Rachel O’Connor.

Guiseley’s point from a 1-1draw leaves them in seventh place with six wins and two draws from their 13 games.

They are on 20 points with both Altrincham and Boston United on 21 points, having played 14 and 17 games respectively, thus giving The Young Lions the opportunity to improve their situation.

On Wednesday Guiseley face a real challenge travelling to league leaders Blyth Spartans, who have 32 points from 14 games. They are being chased by Notts County, who are in second place with 26 points, also from 14 games.

In the home game against Blyth Guiseley triumphed 5-2 so will be hoping for a repeat of that form.

In this home game, played at Wyke Community Sports Village in Bradford, Guiseley went behind to a first-half goal from Solihull’s rising star Leo Wood.

The young striker is a member of Solihull’s first team squad and was recently loaned out to West Midlands League side Studley, for whom he recently scored against Racing Club Warwick.

Guiseley have their own young striker on form in Miguel Valsau whose second-half strike earned them a share of the spoils. He also scored in Guiseley’s last game, a 2-1 win over Chester.

Guiseley: Callum Bradbury; William Sergejeus, K’marni Miller, Sam Walters, Lewin Storton, Ricardo Grey, Kyle Burrows (Jake Kilbride), Oliwier Grzelak Danyaal Khan (Thomas Ingham), Miguel Valsau, Jack Mason.
