History: The club was founded in 1909 and local league successes included West Riding County Amateur League titles in the 1930s, and then onto the West Yorkshire League. By the non-league shake-up in the early 1980s, Guiseley earned a place in the Northern Counties East League. By the end of the decade, they signed veteran striker Frank Worthington and reached the FA Vase semi-finals, before winning the trophy the following season after a replay; a title win also saw promotion to the Northern Premier League. There were various close shaves and play-off heartbreaks in the Conference North before Guisely finally won promotion in 2014/15. They finished bottom in the National League.
