Squad set for run out at Nethermoor this evening
Town’s players will be back in action tonight (Wednesday) when the Terriers travel to Nethermoor Park to take on Guiseley AFC in a 7.45pm kick-off.
It’ll be the second game in consecutive nights for Mark Robins and the squad after last night’s 1-1 draw at York City; click HERE for our match report!
The corresponding game last season was Town’s first pre-season friendly, with the Blue Square Bet North promotion hopefuls winning 1-0.
Guiseley – 2012/13 season
Managed by Steve Kittrick, the Lions finished second in the Blue Square Bet North last season – although their 91 points from 42 games put them a full 16 points behind winners Chester.
With only one team promoted automatically from the division, Guiseley entered the Play-Offs and lost 3-1 on aggregate to FC Halifax Town over two legs in the semi-final.
Guiseley – ones to watch
As with Chesterfield in the opening pre-season friendly, a few familiar faces could line up against Town this evening.
Andy Holdsworth played 261 games for Town after graduating from the Academy between 2003 and 2009, skippering the side on several occasions. Although deployed largely as a right-sided defender during his time at the Club, he now features regularly in central midfield for Guiseley.
In Guiseley’s recent friendly defeat to Bradford City, former Town man Israel Johnson – released in the summer – came off the bench too.
Former Town Academy goalkeeper Jacob Giles is also on the books at Nethermoor Park.
Town fans should pay on the gate, with admission priced at £10 adults, £6 concessions, £4 under-16s and free for accompanied U12s.

From M62/M1 and South and East (Approximately 18 miles)
Via M1 to M62-J28 follow Leeds Ring Road to junction with A65 at Horsforth roundabout. Left on to A65 through Rawdon to Guiseley Centre on Otley Road following signs for Ilkley/Otley and keeping Morrison’s on your left. At the traffic lights by the Station pub, turn right then cross the railway bridge and take the next left on to Netherfield Road. After some 800 yards you will see a large car park (containing a clock statue) on the left. Parking here is free and the adjacent footbridge leads to our Railway End Turnstiles.
Alternatively, follow the above instructions via Morrison’s, carry straight on at the Station traffic lights and Nethermoor is on your right, although parking can be more difficult.
Note: The Bowling Club car park is for their members only, so there is no parking for football visitors.
