Guiseley Academy 11 Rossington Main 0

GUISELEY Academy have been drawn away to Harrogate Town on Monday, October 1 in the next round of the FA Youth Cup after enjoying an 11-goal romp against Rossington Main at Nethermoor.

They faced Harrogate at Wetherby Road earlier this month in their opening National League Under-19 fixture and emerged with a 12-0 victory, so they will fancy their chances of progressing further.

The rampant young Lions made it difficult for Rossington, who were gallant and sporting opponents, by opening the scoring in the second minute through 17 year-old Tabish Hussain, who went on to net a hat-trick before being substituted.

The youngster recently made his first team debut for Guiseley and his involvement with the senior side is certainly showing. Guiseley then increased their lead after 15 minutes when Lewis Waddington netted.

Hussain made it three and midfielder Aleks Starcenko made it two goals in two minutes as Guiseley went into a four-goal lead.

The former completed his hat-trick in the 37th minute as Guiseley took a 7-0 lead into the break through further goals from Charlie Heath and Jake Young.

Guiseley netted four times in the second half through Craig Hall (2), and substitutes Mustapha Coker and Lewis Collett.

Despite the number of goals against his name, the Rossington ‘keeper also made some good saves while Declan Lambton in the Guiseley goal made one good stop.

Young could have doubled his personal tally, but he was out of luck with his shooting, hitting a number of efforts wide or high of the goal, as well as hitting the post.

He was more prolific when they visited Harrogate in the league, netting five goals alongside Hussain in their 12-0 win.

Last week's game against Rossington was watched by the Guiseley first team management duo of Marcus Bignot and Russ O’Neill.

They have given a number of Academy players the opportunity to train with the first team squad throughout the summer and take part in the high-profile pre-season games.

They have since signed six of the Academy players on first-team forms and some have made it to the substitutes bench for National League North games.

Academy graduates Will Thornton and Scott Smith have also featured heavily in the Guiseley matchday squad this season.
