Saturday 8th September and we welcome Newcastle Benfield to the KGV with a 3pm kick off.
We have, so far, played them 4 times in the League but only won once.
The last time the Lions visited us here at the KGV was last August in our very first game back in the top flight. They scored 4 goals whereas we could only reply with one goal by Luke Bythway.
On New Year Bank Holiday Monday, Guisborough had an excellent 3-2 away win at Newcastle Benfield, who finished the game with nine men.
Before that it was in the League Cup in January 2008 and the 0-2 defeat ended our cup run when a goal in each half by Brian Dodsworth and Ian Graham saw them progress to play Shildon in the next round.
In the season we were relegated from the First Division they did the double over us with a 1-2 at the KGV on 18th August 2004 and a 4-1 drubbing at theirs on 11th January 2005.
Newcastle Benfield were promoted to the First Division at the end of the 2003-04 season as Newcastle Benfield Saints and got their first ever Division One win in August 2004 at the KGV despite us opening the scoring, but two goals from Woodhouse saw them take all three points.
So to recap Newcastle Benfield WON their first ever Division One game and it was against us and on our return Guisborough Town LOST our first Division One match after promotion to Newcastle Benfield.
