Guiseley 1 Eastwood Town 2

TEENAGER Gregg Simmons struck an injury-time winner as Eastwood Town claimed a stunning win at Guiseley on Saturday.

The victory was the Badgers’ first in the league since October 29, and made amends for a 7-0 hammering at Guiseley in the FA Trophy earlier this season.

Francis Green put the Badgers in front just after half-time, but Danny Ellis’s equaliser five minutes from time looked to have denied the visitors a shock win.

But 16-year-old Simmons was on hand to head home the winner in stoppage time and stretch Eastwood’s unbeaten run to four matches.

Full report to follow.

Eastwood are next in action on Saturday when they host Hinckley United, before Vauxhall Motors come to Coronation Park next Tuesday night.
