One week after Northgate’s humbling defeat at home to St Kentigern’s, they make the short journey to Warrington for their first ever quarter-final. A tough task lies ahead of the Tangerines, with Warrington sitting comfortably in 4th in Division 1, 15 league places above Northgate in Division 3. Clark will be trying to encourage his men however, hoping that last week – the first league defeat in 3 months – was just a blip.
At his disposal this week is another large and strong squad. Ben Davenport has been declared fit to play in goal as he returns to the squad and Sharrock hopes to play outfield for the first time since November. Meanwhile, absences to Broomhall, Campbell, Clayton, Slade and Ward mean returns for Coleclough, Davies and Kapasi – the away specialist set to make his first appearance since 3rd November.
Manager – Jonny Clark
