Team News – Northgate vs City Church
Saturday 20th October 10.15am – SMCCFL Charity Cup
Fresh off the back off a hard-earned win against Audacious last week, Northgate return home to the scene of their most famous result of last season. Inflicting the only league defeat on City Church’s promotion campaign with a convincing 3-1 victory was a highlight the showed the potential hidden in these tangerine dreams. With the Manchester outfit taking revenge in a 4-0 demolition job in the reverse fixture, they proved to everyone that they are not to be taken lightly. This time, the Charity Cup brings the new Division 2 team back to Chester and with both clubs taking 3 points in their opening group game, this presents an opportunity for the winners to book their spot in the quarter final, with the losers left to fight it out in the final group match.
Several changes to the windswept squad of 7 days ago are made. Davenport, Scott, Mainwaring and Morgan make up the list of absentees, whilst there are recalls for Sharrock, Thomas, and Stringer – making his first appearance since scoring his debut goal against Westwood. In addition, Clark has been busy trawling the transfer market midweek, and there have been 2 more signings to the squad. Eryl Hooson and Dillon Garner will don the famous orange jerseys for the first time in search of glory.
Manager – Jonny Clark
