Leeds United are off this weekend due to the international break, so if you’ve got some time on your hands and want to see some community football clubs in action, we suggest that you check out one of the local Non-League clubs in action.

Garforth Town and Guiseley AFC are both local West Yorkshire clubs that play below the football league, and both offer football at reasonable prices. Guiseley just announced that they were going to be fully professional, and Leeds fans might remember that Leeds played a friendly at Guiseley during the preseason this past summer.

Guiseley will be looking to put some distance between themselves and the relegation places in the National League, as they are on 17 points and in 20th place, one point and one place above Barrow, who sit in the drop zone.

Bromley, by contrast, are in 7th place after 18 matches played, with 28 points. They are only one point out of the play-off places and only five points behind National League leaders Dover Athletic.

Guiseley look to continue their good form that they had mid-week, as they dumped local West Yorkshire side Garforth Town out of the County Cup 6-0. The are also unbeaten in seven matches in all competitions. Bromley make the long trip up from London on Saturday, and Guiseley will be hoping that the visitors leave Nethermoor empty-handed.

If you choose to go to the match on Saturday, it’s at the proper time for football, 3PM GMT, and will be played at Nethermoor in Guiseley. If you need driving directions or directions from the Guiseley train station, you can find them from the Internet Football Ground Guide, or visit the club’s website for more information. Be sure to check them out on Twitter as well.
