Bradford Park Avenue and Farsley were both denied league action tonight for differing reasons.

Avenue should have hosted Gainsborough Trinity in the Blue Square Bet North Division but the Lincolnshire outfit have an FA Trophy replay at Hinckley Town.

Avenue today announced the loan signing of Simon Garner from Chorley. The midfielder has also been on loan at FC Halifax Town and FC United of Manchester.

Farsley’s Evo-Stik Division One North trip to fellow promotion chasers New Mills fell foul of a waterlogged pitch.

Guiseley will be hoping nothing stands in their way tomorrow evening as they head to Barrow for an FA Cup first-round replay.

The Cumbrians may be in the Blue Square Premier but they are third bottom while the Lions are third in the Blue Square North.

The prize is a home tie against former Football League outfit Macclesfield Town, not to mention a not insignificant sum of money for the winners.

Guiseley will be full of confidence after Saturday’s 7-0 romp over Whitby Town in the FA Trophy and are desperate to reach the FA Cup second round for the first time in their history.

The second round of the Baris Northern Counties East League Cup gets underway tomorrow night, with Brighouse Town at home to Tadcaster Albion, Liversedge hosting Scarborough Athletic and Thackley welcoming Pickering Town to Dennyfield in three all-Premier Division ties.
