Former Halifax legends Danny Lowe and Ryan Toulson both started in Guiseley’s dramatic 3-2 Conference North play-off final win at Chorley to help Mark Bower’s side to promotion.
Bower, ex-Halifax captain, guided his team from trailing 2-0 at half-time and complete a remarkable turnaround against James Dean’s Chorley.
But now Guiseley have reached the top-tier of non-league football, they have their work cut out to bring their Nethermoor ground up to scratch.
By March 31, 2016, Guiseley must fulfil membership criteria for the Conference Premier and achieve A-grade status, when their capacity is likely to have to reach 4,000.
To attain that their plans hinge on receiving planning permission from Leeds City Council.
