SILSDEN manager Danny Forrest was full of praise for a young trio who played a starring role in his side’s 3-2 Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division win over Goole last weekend.

And they will all be hoping to get another chance in this Saturday’s FA Vase Second Round Qualifying clash at home to Northern League outfit Guisborough Town.

Discussing the Goole win, Forrest said: “First and foremost I’m really happy, as I’ve watched the game back a couple of times and I felt we deserved to win it.

“We played attractive and effective football, which we now need to keep doing going forward.”

And chatting about the three youngsters who performed so well, the Cobbydalers boss said: “Jake Maltby has come in on a dual registration from Farsley Celtic. He’s played a bit of football with them, but he’s still only 19.

“He kept it simple, and gave us an option in midfield. His range of passing was a joy but he was brave in the tackle too.

“Robbie Fox (who played out wide on the left) has been with us for about 18 months but this was his first start and he did really well.

“He came out of the Guiseley Academy and you can see that Dave Currie and Danny Ellis did a good job with him there.

“Harry Parsons (who is a full-back) has been the under-23s captain for the last couple of years, so he’s had to work hard and be patient for his chance in the first team.

“But he’s trusted us, got his first start on Saturday, and did so well he was named man of the match.”

This Saturday’s opponents Guisborough are a team Forrest knows little about, with the two sides last meeting way back in 2009.

But the Silsden boss said: “We’ve just got to do what we’re good at and concentrate on ourselves.

“You can pick up snippets about other teams on social media or on their club websites, but you can get caught up in that and overthink it, as we have done in the past.

“So we just need to worry about ourselves, train hard this week, and being at home, try and take the game to Guisborough.”

The FA Vase is a special tournament to clubs at Silsden’s level, and Forrest said: “Two years ago, I think we went the furthest we’d ever gone in the competition.

“It generated a lot of finances and interest at the club, so it’s something we’d like to go far in again.

“We want to win every match we play, no matter what competition we’re in, but it is nice in the Vase because you get to face different teams. There is that element of the unknown, which is exciting.

“The Northern League is a strong one, so we’re expecting a tough game with Guisborough, but when we’re at home and hit that sweet spot, we can beat anybody at our level.”
