Once more the two Towns do battle and this time its the FA Cup which is great way to kick off the season.
Our last visit was back on Saturday 22nd January 2011 where the score was level at half time with goals by Bulmer and Onions.
Earlier in the season Ozzie Johnston had won the game for us but was on the bench until the second half and immediately he made a huge difference.
In the first few minutes of the restart an excellent ball from Luke Bythway found Ozzie in the box but his shot sailed over the bar. Not to be disheartened he made a nuisance of himself when Shane Henry crossed for Ozzie and this time he made no mistake hitting the target to score the winning goal. Just as Guisborough had pulled off a masterstroke with the substitution, Northallerton introduced Darren Mowbray to replace centre forward Mitchell and Guisborough Town spent the next 15 minutes under tremendous pressure.

The result helped us gain promotion but today both teams will be looking for a result to win £1000 and get into the next round where the winners visit Whitehaven or Shildon.
Sun shining and not a cloud in the sky - no excuses for a day out in Northallerton.
