This Saturday 25th August we visit the Railwaymen of Shildon in our first FA Cup game this season.

Last year we each won and lost in our League matches. None on our scorers are with us today though as Mikey Roberts is now in Australia, Shane Henry now with Whitby Town after a spell at Synners and Jamie Poole is at Shildon's neighbours West Auckland.

Shildon beat us 2-1 at theirs in December 2011 with Shaneos goal as consolation and at the end of February 2012 Poole and Roberts gave us the 2-1 vistory at the KGV.

What's the odds on a 2-1 scoreline this time?

Earlier in the season Shildon had knocked us out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 win in a game that contained some controversy with an piece of ear jewellry that would not/could not be parted from Leon Scott's ear despite some surgical attempts by the Shildon bench. There was also some questioning about the numbers as we did not have a number 18 shirt and of course we can name 7 substitutes.


Our team will consist of not many players who played in last year's FA Cup tie including:
McPhillips, Steel, Wood, but due to unavailabilty there will be no Lee and Luke Bythway, Paul Roddam, Joel Guy and Dan Dixon and Austin Johnston picked up an injury last night so will have to assessed on Saturday.

It will give Shildon a chance to see the new members of the squad including new keeper Ben Escritt, Michael Jameson and Jack Connor who are both returning to action as well as the other new faces.

This game is worth an extra £250 to last year's tie with £1,750 to the winning team and a chance to visit the winners of Durham City v Billingham Town on September 8th.

Looking forward to a good game and what are you drinking Norman? :wink:

Saturday 25th August 2012

FA Cup Preliminary Round

Shildon 1 Guisborough Town 0 HT
Shildon 1 Guisborough Town 1 FT (own goal)

Ben Escritt, Jack Connor, Liam McPhillips, Ryan Foster, Liam O'Sullivan, Gary Wood, Craig Bishop, Austin Johnston, Adam Gell, Nathan Steel, Lewis Wood.
Subs: Sam Hodgson, Michael Jameson (on for Connor 45), Jake Matthews, Jonathan Harris (on for O'Sullivan 88), Billy Blackford (on for Steel 68).

Last year the Railwaymen of Shildon ended the Priorymen’s hope for progress in the national competition with a 1-0 victory and history looked like it could repeat itself on Saturday when an early penalty on 10 minutes by Adam Johnston made its way past Ben Escritt.

There had been chances by both teams with Christopher Hughes breaking free in the first minute but failed to score. The last few games Austin Johnston has been awarded man on the match and on 8 minutes collected a ball from Lewis Wood and twisted and turned but his shot went wide of the right post. Ben Escritt then had to run out to meet the sole attacker and caught his foot with the referee awarding the penalty and a yellow card for the goalkeeper.

The game was played on a wet pitch that made for a blood and thunder FA Cup tie and Escritt has to pull out some amazing stops with his hands and feet to stop Shildon taking control even further.

Keith Finch in the host's goal also had to make some great stops including Liam McPhillips header from a Liam O'Sullivan cross with twenty minutes to go

It looked like it was going to end the same as last year with Shildon this time looking forward to a trip to Durham City in the next round until a well executed corner by Guisborough in the dying minutes was turned into the home side’s net with Austin Johnston and Shildon’s Ross Gardner jumping for the same ball and the ensuing goal was declared an own goal.

The manager, Chris Hardy recognised that “Shildon on another day could have won the game by two or three, but credit to my lads they defended well and showed great character to earn a draw and take the game into a replay on Wednesday night”

The Priorymen’s defence will be bolstered by the return of Lee Bythway, Paul Roddam and Mark Casey along with the striker Luke Bythway back for selection. Liam O’Sulllivan picked up an injury in Saturday’s game so his place looks doubtful.

The replay on Wednesday is the first of two Cup games with Saturday being the Priorymen’s first FA Vase outing this season when they host Crook Town in a tournament that they made it all the way to Wembley in 1980.

What a tremendous battling performance from an under-strength Guisborough side - particularly the second half when we really looked to keep the ball.

My full thoughts on the game found below:
