2018/19 current positions: 4th and 3rd.
SMCCFL Division 3’s “nearly men” Kay Street United look to strengthen their promotion bid this weekend with a visit to Chester. Coming off the back of 5 straight wins they are full of confidence, but travelling to the Tangerine Fortress they will find themselves met by the same surroundings that ultimately cost them promotion last season as they drew a blank in an enthralling 0-0 battle. Northgate on the other hand are looking to get their promotion bid back on track after a stuttering few weeks at the hands of title favourites St Kentigern’s and Division 2 Spacious Place in the Charity Cup.
Dogged by a recurrence of the calf injury that kept him out of the visit from 2nd placed People’s Church back in September, Clark is once again ruled out through injury and will take his place on the sidelines to manage the squad. Matt Ward, Russ Morgan and Mike Heathcote are the only other absentees, as Davenport, Jones, Broomhall, Owen, Elkington and Davies all return to what is a strong and extensive squad for this important clash.
Manager – Jonny Clark
