Guisborough Town have continued their winning start to the season by beating West Auckland Town, 7-2.

Auckland opened the scoring in the first 37 seconds, before Town equalised four minutes later with an equaliser from Danny Earl.

After only seven minutes though, the Priorymen went behind again after former Guisborough favourite, Anthony Hume, finished from five yards.

In the second half, Town came out flying scoring the equalising goal only two minutes after the restart, from Ste Snaith.

Guisborough went in the lead for the first time after some nice passing before Earl finished easily past the keeper.

Earl then completed his hat-trick after a clever pass from Luke Bythway set up an easy finish to put the ball in the net.

It only took a minute for Guisborough to extend their lead, with Bywater again providing, this time for Bulmer to score from the edge of the box to put Town ahead 5-2.

Town were not finished their though and after going down in the box, Bythway turned scorer. Danny Earl's initial penalty was saved by the Auckland keeper, with the striker reacting first to turn the ball in.

With the game almost at full-time, Bywater put the fans into 'seven heaven' with a thunderous strike from 20 yards out found its was into the back of the net.

After a game where the phrase 'a game of two halves' couldn't be taken more literal, manager, Chris Hardy, named midfielder, Curtis Round, man of the match.
