Guiseley look for bumper gate as Huddersfield come to town
Guiseley are hoping for a bumper crowd on Saturday for the visit of Championship newcomers Huddersfield Town (3pm).
The Lions, who opened their pre-season friendlies with an 8-0 victory at Nostell Miners’ Welfare last week-end, will be facing a full first-team squad from the Terriers.
“They have promised us that and there is quite a lot of excitement being generated on their website as they have chosen to wear their new away strip for the first time,” said Guiseley’s chief executive officer Adrian Towers.
“Our ground is looking magni-ficent after all the work we have been doing on it over the past few weeks and we are really looking forward to Saturday.
“We are expecting a four-figure crowd – a thousand would be nice but 2,000 would be even better. “It will be a good test of our capacity, which is 3,000.”
The attendance should be boosted by under-16s being allowed in free if they play junior football. This also applies to the match against Brad-ford City on Wednesday, August 1.
All juniors need to do is bring their club id card or a copy of their league registration form. Under-12s must be accompanied by a paying adult.
New strikers Chris Mason and Nicky Boshell both weighed in with hat-tricksin the 8-0 win at Nostell, more than making up for the absence of James Walshaw and Josh Wilson at wed-dings. Danny Ellis and Gavin Rothery (penalty) also netted.
