Ladies Ready For Guisborough Trip

Moors Ladies are back in league action on Sunday when they travel to Guisborough Town for their first away fixture in over a month (2pm kick-off).

Boss Billy Shackleton and his players were left frustrated last weekend when their scheduled fixture against Gateshead fell victim to the weather and they were left without a game.

However, they go into the trip to Guisborough in high spirits and in good form having won three of their last four outings as they have made progress in both league and cup.

“We’ve got a couple of games in hand now, which is good in the long run but we need to capitalise,” said Shackleton.

“It’s vital that we keep winning games as often as possible whilst we’re in this good form so we can continue to drive up the table and challenge those teams above us.”

There was a blow for Shackleton and Moors during the week when the influential Drew Seymour sustained an injury in training which is set to keep her on the sidelines, alongside Julia McGovern and Monika Kisicka who both remain unavailable.

However, there is brighter news for top scorer Autumn Colledge who is hoping to shake off the effects of an ankle injury to take her place in the line-up on Sunday, while new signing Lily Jackson is also in contention for a debut.

“Guisborough haven’t had the best start to the season but that means nothing on Sunday,” insisted Shackleton.

“They will be looking to get a good result, so we need to make sure we don’t give them the opportunity and we keep on performing to the standards we’ve set.”

Sunday’s game is a 2pm kick-off and will take place at The King George V Stadium.
