Guiseley AFC Community Foundation & Guiseley Lions
Annual Six-a-Side Football Tournament
The annual Six a Side Football Tournament took place on Sunday 21st July in conjunction with Guiseley Lions and their partner charity Wesley’s Wish which aims to support a fantastic local cause and help Wesley, a Guiseley boy in his struggle to live a normal life.
A fantastic £632 was raised on the day with £108 raised in a bucket collection prior to the Guiseley vs Huddersfeld pre-season friendly.
The Real Guiseley Lions struggled to get into the rhythm in this years tournament and relinquished their title to the worthy winners Curries Cloggers. Bayern Brew ere the runners up.

Wes was born at just 31 weeks. He spent almost a month in intensive care then, just as he was getting ready to come home, a routine scan showed that part of his brain had been damaged. As a result Wes suffers from cerebral palsy. He is a bright, chatty boy, but struggles to sit, crawl or stand. Without a really special effort he’s unlikely to ever be able to walk. Wesley’s Wish has been set up to raise funds for this special effort. In the USA a pioneering operation – Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) – has already allowed over 2,000 children with Wes’ condition to walk. We’re hugely optimistic it will give Wes the chance of a normal life.
