Two goals in the last ten minutes of the first half from Guiseley put them in the driving seat in this 3-0 defeat from County at Nethermoor.
After over half an hour of even play with no real threat on either would have been happy to go in 0-0 at half time.
But the final ten minutes of the first half saw County concede two goals in quick succession – the first after some neat passing by Guiseley opened up the County defence for Boyes to bundle the ball home.
Guiseley took confidence from thae goal and capitalised further when Ellis beat Sharp to meet deep free kick at the far post that gave Hurst in goal no chance.
HT: County 0 – 2 Guiseley
Ten minutes into the second half and it was 3-0 as another period of sharp passing by the home side unlocked County’s defence, rounded off with Brooksby sliding the ball under Hurst to effectively seal victory.
This introduction of Spencer to the County forward line immediately after the goal livened up the attack and gave County fans some hope.
Spencer linked up well with the players around him, laid-off some neat balls and neatly finished a move that was ruled offside.
The nearest County came to a goal was late on when Dennis controlled well and made space to fire in a fierce shot before seeing one fizz just wide of the target in the closing minutes.
It was always going to be a difficult start to the season and County now look forward to a visit to Tamworth on Saturday looking for their first points.
