GUISELEY released their new playing kits in time for their first pre-season friendly of the summer on Saturday, where they were beaten 7-0 at home by a strong Huddersfield Town side.

It was the first game of Mark Bower’s second spell back in charge at Nethermoor, as he returned to the club at the end of last season following seven years in charge of Bradford (Park Avenue).

Bower handed Guiseley debuts to a couple of his former Avenue charges on Saturday, in Lucas Odunston and Will Longbottom.

But his Northern Premier League Premier Division side were no match for their League One visitors, who included big names in their side like Jonathan Hogg, Matty Pearson and Josh Koroma.

The latter scored twice as the Terriers took a 3-0 lead into the break, while a completely changed visiting side scored four more times in the second half.

It was no youth team though, and contained Championship regulars like Michal Helik and Ben Wiles from last season.

Guiseley will have much easier fixtures as pre-season progresses, and there was one particularly nice touch on Saturday, with Harry Churnin-Ritchie from the youth team named in the senior squad for the first time.

Bower’s side host Bradford City in their next game this Saturday, while their new yellow away kit could make its debut at Avro next Wednesday.

They are on the road again two days later against Liversedge, before a Nethermoor double header against Leeds United's Under-21s and a Barnsley XI.

Guiseley's final pre-season game comes at North Ferriby on Saturday, August 3.
