Saturday Football


A rapturous applause met us as we strolled powerfully through the officials entrance at Guiseley AFC’s ground on Saturday. Well… sort of, let me think… which facts are true… we strolled in through the official’s entrance of the ground, but there was certainly no applause. Mainly as the only people who were there this early were the players who were warming up on the pitch and some of the other officials / drunks.

Let me give you a little more information on what is going on… simply myself and Mr Jakkychamp from Alcopop were at Guiseley AFC’s FA CUP 2nd Qualifying round game against local rivals Garforth Town FC. This is fine, the only problem is that when I say local, I mean local to each other and bloody miles away from where we live. Leeds to be exact… so after the 4 hours drive from Oxford we had arrived in much need of a cider shaped reward.

We met up with some ace locals, more accurately Luke, Stuart, Aidan and David, who had come along for the game. So, quick beer and it was kick off time.

Guiseley got off to a flying start and went 2 up, Garforth got one back luckily before half time. The second half was all Garforth, who got a late equaliser after Guiseley had their striker controversially sent off. It finished 2-2 and this meant replay, which was coincidentally held last night, Guiseley dominated and went through 3-1.

All cheer for Guiseley AFC in the third qualifying round at home against Sheffield, wish I could go up for it now!
